EUF and TOC postpone EUIC in Herning to 2022

18/05/2020

Dear European ultimate community,
 
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the EUF and local TOC have decided to postpone the EUIC until 2022. The main reasons for this decision being that the pandemic is still very much a health threat on our continent and may continue to be so in many European countries for months to come. At presentmany national borders are closed and even if they should reopen before winter, international travel will most likely not have fully restored by then. In addition, the timing of when especially indoor sports can resume remains uncertain, leaving a very limited timeframe for national teams to have actual indoor practices.

The European Ultimate Indoor Championships (EUIC) will take place in Herning, Denmark, from Thursday January 27 to Sunday January 30, 2022.

The expected timeline will be :
Call to national federations in April 2021
Preregistration of national teams in May 2021
Announcement of selected national teams in June 2021
Registration of national teams with payment of team fee in August 2021
Booking of accommodation in September 2021
Payment of player's fees in October 2021
Ordering airport transfers and meals in November 2021
 
The venue will be the same as for EUICC 2020 that some of you are already acquainted with. As a bonus to all of us, by 2022 we expect to have a newly constructed main arena at our disposal as well as a replacement of the cafeteria management.
 
You may still reach the Danish TOC by email euic2021@dfsu.dk that for nostalgic reasons will not be changed.

New EUCS Calendar 2020: No EUCRs but extended EUCF (xEUCF) in Bruges on Oct. 1-4 (if conditions allow)

27/04/2020

Dear European ultimate community,

These are strange times, times that ask for new measures.

Given the fact that in a lot of European countries the special COVID-19 regulations have been prolongued, prohibiting big events until the 1st of September, and we don't know when team sports like ultimate are allowed again, the EUF board finds it very unlikely that the EUCR's, due end of August, will be possible. So rather than keeping everyone guessing, we decided to cancel all EUCR's for this year.

However, we still have high hopes that later in 2020 sports will be possible again. Begin October we have EUCF, but in close consultation with the TOC in Bruges, we are now planning an extended version of EUCF. This so-called xEUCF would be played over 4 days in stead of 3, and have bigger divisions. Bruges can harbor upto 32 Open, 20 Women's and 20 Mixed teams !

The idea is to allot bids to countries directly. For that we'll look at the history of club teams per country over the last 4 years at EUCF. Besides EUF wants to cater for every interested national federation to have at least one team present in Bruges. How national federations give those allotted spots to their club teams is totally upto them, but without any real possibility to have a qualifier tournament, it seems quite logical to use last year's championships' outcomes.

EUF will setup a pre-registration in June and making decisions about a final team list in July. Then 1st of August we have set ourselves a deadline for the final decision. After that date teams still have two months to prepare and it would also mean two months for the TOC and its crew to get ready. Payments will only be made after that date too.

But, be aware that by the deadline date a lot must have changed. To make a positive final decision, in most European countries teams should be able to -at least- practice together. There should be a reasonable possibility to fly to other countries or crossing the border by car come October, and of course by October people should be allowed to play games again.

Still, with this great idea we strive to give the (elite) European community hope at a happy ultimate ending !

Call for Bids for EYUCamps 2020

26/01/2020

This is the call for bids for the European Youth Ultimate Culture Camps (EYUCamps). The camp is mainly targeted for players between 13 and 18 years of age with at least one year of playing experience. Younger or older Junior players may be accepted in agreement with the regional Camp Organizing Committee and EUF.


The main idea is to give any youth players, not only the elite, an uplifting international ultimate experience, which otherwise only national team players get.
The EUF Youth Committee has started co-hosting regional “Youth Ultimate Culture Camps" for players to encourage grass roots development of young players throughout Europe in 2018. A number of national federations have expressed interest in hosting one of the camps in 2020.

To encourage international participation, please recommend locations easily reachable for a number of countries; ideally in a border region and not in the middle of a big country.
The number of participants may vary greatly, from 25 to 200 kids. This is up to the local organizers to define Coaches typically come from the EUF "Train the Trainer" program, and a head coach will be provided.
Please provide confirmation of support, participation and approval of your National Flying Disc Federation
