EUF Rules Accreditation Process 2015

EUF European Youth Ultimate Championship (EYUC2015) and EUF European Ultimate Championship (EUC2015)

 

In 2013 WFDF established a Rules Accreditation process to allow players to demonstrate that they have read the Rules of Ultimate.
This document outlines the Accreditation requirements that must be met by each team at all EUF sanctioned events held in 2015.
 
For 2015, the EUF Board has established the following Rules Accreditation Requirements that must be met at EUF-sanctioned Ultimate events:
  • Standard Accreditation: All team members on the roster must have at least a Standard Accreditation.
  • Advanced Accreditation:  A minimum of 3 players per team must have the Advanced Accreditation, one of whom must be the team captain. 

Standard Accreditation

All players on a team's roster must have the Standard Accreditation.
 

Advanced Accreditation

A minimum of 3 players on a team's roster must in addition have the Advanced Accreditation, one of whom must be the Team Captain.

Note: Certificates expire after 18 months

The WFDF User ID Number is provided to all players who attempt the quiz, and is available here: http://rules.wfdf.org/userprofile.

Without this information, the player will not be able to register and so to attend the event.

Monitoring

The TOC will use the WFDF Accreditation Registry to verify that each team
has met their Accreditation requirements.
The EUF Representative at the tournament should be informed of any team that has not met its Accreditation requirements. 

Enforcement

The EUF Representative will be responsible for discussing any noncompliance with the relevant teams and assisting the teams to meet their requirements.
Any team that has not met the Accreditation requirements will not be able to participate in the tournament until the requirements are met.

Quiz Details

The WFDF Accreditation quizzes are available here: http://rules.wfdf.org/accreditation
The format of both levels of Accreditation is an open book quiz that is based on the WFDF Rules of Ultimate 2013. The quiz is designed to allow players to demonstrate that they have read the Rules of Ultimate.
  • A minimum score of 8/10 must be achieved to become Rules Accredited.
  • Accreditation is valid for 18 months.

Players are strongly encouraged to refer to the WFDF Rules of Ultimate 2013, and all supporting documentation, when attempting the quiz. The WFDF Rules of Ultimate can be found here: http://rules.wfdf.org/rules/ultimate .

Important note regarding Rules Accredited players

  • They have the same responsibilities on the field as every other player
  • They do not release a Captain from their responsibility to ensure their team upholds the Spirit of the Game
  • They do not replace the requirement for each player to learn and apply the rules and play with good Spirit
