XEUCF 2020 Bid Allocation

In April the European Ultimate Federation (EUF) announced a temporary change to the annual European Ultimate Club Series (EUCS) to better cope with the implications of the COVID-19 crisis.

 

In response to the original announcement, the UKU Competition Committee discussed options for allocating bids and determined that we would use the results from the 2019 UKU Nationals / EUCR-W.  This week, the EUF has announced the finalised bid distribution by national federation.

UKU Financial Update

We wanted to create a place where we could share some specific information and stories in a more accessible online format than our main website.  Please click here to see our temporary blog, which for now, features a Financial Update and a How Can I Help? page.

Message of thanks to our partners

We’re extremely grateful to all of our event partners who have been so supportive throughout the last few weeks and we wanted to send a quick shout-out to to some of them below.  Our venues, our medical support teams and VC Lookfly were all very directly affected when we had to cancel our events.  We also wanted to pass on messages we received from Tokay and the Youth Sport Trust.

New concussion information

We are really pleased to be able to publish new concussion information and guidance prepared by Dr Kenny Duffy.  The document is designed to educate all UKU members about concussion: if in doubt sit them out.  Please read the document and share the link with your club mates.

New Coach Forums

What is a Coach Forum?
UKU Coach Forums are small online events (that we hope will be repeatable). They are designed as an opportunity for coaches, leaders and those interested to come together to discuss a topic. The format will generally follow an introductory presentation followed by an opportunity for participants to pose questions, discuss their own experiences and learn from others. They will usually be held over 1-2 hours of an evening.

Why would I sign up?
- you're interested in the topic
- you want to join a discussion with other coaches / leaders / players from around the UK who you may not normally get the chance to talk to
- you want UKU coaching credits

Ultimate Activities Scrapbook

The Ultimate Activities scrapbook is a collection of ideas, games and activities for anyone starting to teach Ultimate to children.


We hope to build the scrapbook with contributions from teachers, coaches, activators ...etc, who have great tried-and-tested ideas. If you have anything you’d like added please email coaching@ukultimate.com.
