Autumn & Winter Trainings (BACA)
Through the autumn, winter and early spring we have floodlit practices on a weeknight evening – currently Monday evenings, 8-10pm on a 3G pitch at “BACA” (map below). All are welcome to these sessions, regardless of experience. The cost are between £2.50-4.00 per session, which includes discounts for students, under 18s, and those who prepay. See the shop for accurate prices. You can join us at any point in the season.
Your very first practice session with BU is free!
After three sessions we require that all attendees have up-to-date BU and UKU membership.
Directions… if you’re travelling by car then park in the school’s car park (free). You should then be able to see the floodlit pitches. Travelling by public transport or walking then it’s actually very similar to getting there by car. There is no special gate through to the 3G pitch from e.g. Falmer station, so you have to walk round to the school and get in from there. If you are walking from Falmer station there is a wide path that runs alongside the railway that you’ll want to use. It’s on the Brighton Uni/BACA/Stadium side of the railway line.
Below are sessions not on right now
Wait until Spring and Summer
Fun Tuesdays (Spring + Summer)
This isn’t an official BU practice but is a regular session that happens in Brighton. It’s an ‘anything goes’ practice. It’s basically pick-up in the park. Very casual. People normally turn up after work; perhaps 6/6:30pm onwards until dusk. We usually have enough for a game of mini. If you’re lucky there might also be a Spikeball and Goaltimate set available.
If you head down to Preston Park and look out for discs in the air; that’s how you’ll find everyone. If you’re new you might have to say hello and ask for an introduction. All types of players go to Fun Tuesdays so it might be worth asking someone for the coach or an experienced player to start you off.
Summer Trainings (Spring + Summer)
With the sun poking out we head to Wild Park for a chilled weekly session in the surroundings of the South Downs National Park. Everyone is welcome to these sessions, where you can expect drills and games coached by at least one of our experienced players.
As long as you are a Brighton Ultimate member these sessions are free!
