Hockey Tournament:
This will be part of the British Unicycle Hockey league and there is space for 10 teams only. This will be strictly allocated on the first 10 teams registered. Games will run simultaneously in the two halls for 6 hours, with a 2 minute turn around between games (this will be explained fully on the day). If 10 teams are not registered by 18th January, we will fill the remaining places with scratch teams. Please contact us if you are interested in playing in a scratch team.

Advanced Freestyle Workshop & UUU Level Testing:
Connie Cotter will be running an advanced unicycling workshop during the afternoon. This will include skill development/sharing, group riding, preparation for competition or performing and discussion of the possible formation of a UK freestyle team. Session will be restricted to the first 20 registrants. After the workshop there will be an opportunity to take the UUU level tests (http://www.unicycle.org.uk/skills.html).
