Old News

“It’s now been decided that it will be a three day event, starting Friday July 4, with final placement games and finals on Sunday July 6.
The fees have therefore been adjusted somewhat.
We’ve got feedback from some countries, but from others we’re missing this.
If you’re considering participation at the moment and working on getting a team/teams together, please let us know, and we’ll put you down as “interested”.
It doesn’t mean you are registering, you can still cancel if things don’t work out, but it’s good for other nations to know which countries are trying to work things out.

Pick-up teams/ individuals:

Would you like to participate and you have no team?
All individual players are welcome!
The aim is that every U17 or Junior player that wants to play at the event should be able to do this!

Confirmation and deposit payment:

JUNE 15, 2008 (go to section FEES)

- by this date we need your definite confirmation, registration of players and also deposit payment, which is the team fee (WEC 200,- EUR, EEC 100,- EUR).

Competition/Divisions:

The European Under 17 Ultimate Championships 2008 (EU17EUC2008) will be held in Trnava, Slovakia in 2 divisions: U17 Open and U17 Girls (born in 1992 or later).

There will also be an international tournament, "Flat Flip Junior Tournament", for the Junior Open and Junior Women divisions (born in 1989 or later).

Most likely the U17 Girls and Jr Women divisions will combine to get more games, but separate result tables will be calculated counting only the games between the teams in each division so finals + placement games can be played for each division.

Pls notice, if you don't have enough players for a certain division, combination teams with players from different countries but belonging to the same division is encouraged. Based on earlier competitions, EFDF has noticed this is most enjoyed by the players. "Overaged" players can be accepted, but will be dealt with on a case-to-case basis. Enquiries conc this should be emailed to EFDF contact Paul Eriksson. Pls notice combination teams and teams with "overaged" players cannot play for medals (semis) in the U17 divisions.

The earlier idea of also offering Open and Womens divisions is cancelled due to low interest.

Getting to Trnava
If you arrive at the Bratislava airport, connecting buses going directly to the lodging can be organized for a low price. Pls let us know asap if you will need this and inform the TD Roman (roman (at) discline.com ) about the time and number of your flight arrivals.

Very special participants
The players in this tournament are the youngest at international Frisbeesports championship events. And in this regard organisers have given special attention concerning the safety and security during the activities planned in the tournament days. Two of staff will be focusing only on these aspects during the competition.

Waiver
Please make sure each participant and coach/guest on beforehand has filled in the waiver concerning liability and insurance; please also note the required signature from a parent/guardian. Each team has to hand over these waivers for the entire roster to the organizers before they are allowed to start playing.
