Call for bids for Ultimate Culture Camps 2018

18/10/2017

This is the call for bids for the European Youth Ultimate Culture Camps (EYUCamps) for all Junior Players and if appropriate, for European Youth Ultimate Cups (EYUCups).

The camp is mainly targeted for players between 14 and 17 years of age with at least one year of playing experience. Older Junior players may be accepted in agreement with the regional Camp Organizing Committee and EUF.

The EYUCup is adressed to National Teams. The divisions may vary from location to location.

The EUF Youth Committee has announced that in 2018 we plan to co-host regional “Youth Ultimate Culture Camps” for players to encourage grass roots development of young players throughout Europe. A number of national federations have expressed interest in hosting one of the 4-5 camps. 

In order to support the national team development programs in 2018, the EUF can see regional U17 / U20 Men and Women National Team tournaments (EYUCups) with 2 or more countries happening on the Saturday and Sunday before or after the EYUCamp. This is to be a separate event which should use as many synergies as possible with the EYUCamp.

EUCF2017 Results

03/10/2017

 Dear European Ultimate Federations!

 

The EUCF2017 featured 3 days of intence highly spirited games in the Italian sun of Caorle (Venice).

24 Open, 12 Women and 12 Mixed teams competed for the title of European Ultimate Club Champions 2017.

Congratulation to Clapham Ultimate (Open), Atletico (Women) and Grut (Mixed)!

The EUF asked the teams to do a Spirit Circle also before the game with the goal to have everybody commit in advance how to deal with each other during the game and, thanks to the contact you have during the circle, to reduce potential latent aggressivity some players might have. The numbers tell us that this approached worked very well and we experienced probably the best spirited EUCF ever. The Teams demonstrated that you can have close games (21% of the games on Saturday ended in universe point!!) with full respect of the rules and the Spirit of the Game values!
Congratulations to all participants for this great example!
The spirit award went to FWD>> (Open), Mantis & Crazy Dogs Women (Women) and Left Overs (Mixed)

All Results are under http://eucf2017.ultimatecentral.com/e/eucf-2017

Spirit Results: http://eucf2017.ultimatecentral.com/e/eucf-2017/standings


We would like to ask you to give us your personal feedback about the experiment with the Spirit Circle before the games and in general about the EUCF2017. Please take 2 minutes time to fill in this form

EUCF new Open Division Format: Single division with 24 teams starting with EUCF2017

26/07/2017

Evaluation of the current format of EUCF

The EUF board has evaluated the current situation of European Ultimate and the format of the EUCF within the board members and the help of a small survey that was sent to specific teams only (not to exclude some, but to get an idea of some opinions). Current questions are:

 

- Numbers of teams at EUCF (16, 24, 32)

- Changing 8 Elite and 16 Challengers into 12/12 which possibly better represents the strength of the teams (but also makes it less „elite“)

- How to distribute Elite spots: currently 1 spot guaranteed for each region is controversial

- Is a separation into Elite and Challenger pools still necessary at all

 

Format Changes

Several format changes have been discussed and the EUF has come to the following conclusions: 

- A separation into Elite and Challenger is no longer necessary

- Eliminating the separation into elite and challenger pool has many advantages that overweigh the few disadvantages

- EUCR remains important even without elite-pools 

 

Conclusion

- The new Format will be one Open division only: 6 pools of 4 teams (top 16 proceed to pre-quarters)

- The format will be changed as for EUCF 2017 (Results of already played qualifiers EUCR-C were checked and are not affected)

 

Thoughts on format change in Open division

The original idea of forming an Elite pool was when format changed from 16 to 24 open teams but the level gap of teams was higher than it is now. In order to prevent blowout games and give teams more equal opponents throughout the EUCF, an elite-pool of 8 teams was formed. This would also make EUCR more interesting, as elite-qualified teams would have increased chances at EUCF. The level of Open teams at EUCF has increased since then and the EUF thinks that the separation into elite and challenger pool is not necessary anymore. Also, benefits of the new format are overweighing the current format in many aspects which are:

- Same chance for everyone to win the title, not giving more advantage to elite teams than to others

- Same amount of games*

- Elimination of distribution issues of elite-spots amongst regions

- EUCR is still very important (a good result at EUCR gives you better chances of winning EUCF)

- Schedule is easy to understand (also for spectators) 

*With 24 teams it’s unpreventable that some play less games than others, so seven games for 1-16 and six games for 17-24

The EUF apologizes for the rather late notice, especially to EUCR - Central teams who have played qualifications already. The schedule and results have been checked and the new format doesn’t affect any of the results.

 

Future considerations

 

The EUF is observing the level and development of teams in Europe and will consider to increase the numbers of Mens teams to 32 teams at two different tournaments (16/16) if necessary and appropriate

Eurodisc official disc partner for all European Youth Ultimate Events 2017

14/06/2017

Dear Ultimate Community

In January 2017 WFDF and USA-Ultimate officially declared Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic (Hot Stamp) Ultimate Disc as approved Championship Level Ultimate disc: http://www.usaultimate.org/resources/disc_standards.aspx

After an exhaustive internal evaluation, EUF decided to start an official partnership with Eurodisc. Eurodisc will be the official disc partner for all European Youth Ultimate Events 2017 (EYUCup 2017 in Debrecen and EYUC 2017 in Veenendaal). All games at these events will be played with Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic Ultimate Discs. If both teams agree, the use of a different game disc will be tolerated.

Luca Miglioretto, EUF Board Member and winner of many Windmill Pull-Contests evaluated the Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic (Hot Stamp) Ultimate Disc for the EUF:

What’s different between Discraft and Eurodiscs?

As all non-Discraft Ultimfate Discs, Eurodisc is more stable (falls towards Inside quicker), and actually the Eurodisc is balanced very well, which others are not. It is more stable than Discraft, which is a good thing, but not too stable like Daredevil.

How will it affect players?

Eurodisc is in general slightly forgiving on unclean technique. This means it’s easier to throw for beginners. Also, Eurodiscs are easier to huck than Discraft. They stay upright and float longer. Discraft requires a much better&”clean" technique. Starting from zero, players will be able to handle the Eurodisc better than Discraft, and being able to huck easier will result in a more interesting game in general.

Call for Bids for the European Ultimate Masters Club Championship 2017

07/05/2016

In 2017 there will be the next edition of the European Ultimate Masters Club Championship (EUMCC).
The EUF Club Championship in the Masters divisions is played every 4 years.

The EUF Board has decided to hold the Masters divisions separate in time and location from the divisions without age limits.
This brings not only logistical advantages, but offers the masters divisions much more space and visibility.

Players entering in the Open and Mixed Masters divisions are eligible if they reach at least their 33rd birthday in 2017. In the Women players must reach at least their 30th birthday in 2017.

The participation to the EUMCC does not influence the eligibility limits of the EUCS . This means that Masters players can play in the Masters division at the EUMCC and can play the regular club season with their Open/Women/Mixed Teams. 

The EUF Board officially opens the Call for Bids for the organisation of the EUMCC 2017 in the divisions Open Masters and Women Masters.

Details for the call for bids are here.

The Regional Committee will open the call for bids for the EUCRs in the next days.

 

Grazie e ciao

National Team Preparation Tournament of May 14-16 in Frankfurt

11/11/2015

Dear member federations 

 

As written in the Minutes of the EUF General Assembly the GA assigned Luca Miglioretto from the Swiss federation the task to check the possibility to have a preparation tournament for national teams in 2016, with the chance to identify a fix weekend also for the years after. 

 

Luca interviewed many national team Coaches and came to the conclusion that the long weekend May 14-16 is the one that fits most for a common preparation tournament for 2016.

 

The EUF Board is of the opinion that having a fix event per year where national teams can play and experiment with new players and setups will make European national teams much more competitive without impacting the plans and the tournament calendar of clubs.

 

The organizers of skyline cup and EUCF2014 are able to host a large tournament in 2016 in Frankfurt (GER),  that respects the EUF games and fields requirements.

We encourage national teams to participate this event in 2016.

We want to make clear though that it is completely up to every federation to decide how to plan the season of their national teams and whether rather to apply for a spot at large invitation tournament, whether to use this long weekend for training camps, or whether to register for this "national teams only" event.

 

Thanks a lot to Luca for the great work!

 

We hope that you will also like this idea of fix national teams preparation events and that the one in 2016 will be the first of a long successful series.

In any case we plan to collect feedback whether the period, the format and the location fit the majority and which adjustments should be made for the further years.

 

Grazie e ciao

 

Oddi

EUF supports EFDF in its EOC recognition process and for the participation of Ultimate in the European Games 2019

07/12/2014
 
Ultimate is developing fast and WFDF and EFDF are making incredibly high efforts respectively at world and European level in getting recognition within the Olympic Committees.
 
EUF, as governing body for Ultimate within the EFDF, is directly affected by this process and is ready to actively shape the future of European Ultimate within the EOC family.
The EUC 2015 in Copenhagen will be a perfect show case event to convince the international sport community that Ultimate and Disc Sports are ready to be admitted into
the elite multi-sport events.
 
The EUF board is aware that adding more and more events will force a replanning of our calendar, probably also at world level, and that there is a certain risk that parties extern to Ultimate might try to change the game in order to make it better sellable.
 
For these reasons it is even more necessary that EUF, with its deep roots within the Spirit of the Game and Self-Refereeing and it visionary attitude, gets directly involve since from the beginning in this evolution process.
 
The EUF board officially offers its support in helping EFDF in its EOC recognition and in the application for having Ultimate at the European Games 2019.

EUC2015 participation survey results and Women Masters division at the EUC2015

11/04/2014

Dear EUF member federations

Thanks a lot for having taking part to the participation survey for the EUC2015.
24 federations sent us information, which is an amazing response rate!

according to the survey we expect between 70 and 80 national teams to come to Copenhagen and play on the 21 juicy pitches the venue offers.
This will make the EUC2015 the largest EUC event ever. As a comparison the EUC2011 hosted 50 teams.

We are also very excited about the response about the Women Masters division. More than half a dozen nations have serious plans to send a team in this division.

In order to better coordinate this new division, the EUF board appointed Valeska Schacht from Germany as Women Masters Coordinator for the EUC2015.

Please support her in easing the communication to your women Masters members and of course sending a women Masters team to Copenhagen.

really looking forward to enjoying this "Wonderful EUC" experience !

Grazie e Ciao
