Tournament in this handbook means one particular stage (etapp). Whole 4 tournaments together is League.
Estonia Ultimate League (EUL) objective is to develop competitive experience of all Estonian Ultimate players and expand the community via common tournaments. Special attention is brought to less experienced players developing to prepare for international tournaments.
As organisers we hope to create this environment, which allows to fulfil these objectives and expect every participating team to do their best to help achieve this objectives.
Main teams. Registration is complete and the main teams who will fight for the cup are formed.
Participation fee contains all 4 events and is equal to 30 euros.
U18s. To develop youth players, participation fees are 10€ off for players U18
Main team formation. Teams were made to have maximum competitiveness between all teams. Special filters were to mix as much as possible players by gender, home club, and previous season of the league. Each team has 9-10 players. Teams stay the same for all tournaments.
Pick-ups for Main teams. It is each team’s responsibility to get enough players for each tournament. If one team has pickup spot vacant or they have less than 6 players total or 2 of each gender, then the captain can request an additional pick-up player for their main team, at least a week before the tournament. Pick-ups for Main teams are determined by skill level and are more or less as the same as player who pickup player covers and is assigned by organizers. If the main player has requested pick up player, then this main player and pick up player cannot play on the same tournament.
Pick-up team. One pick-up team will be formed separately for each event and consist of maximum 10 players. Players wishing to participate will have to register separately, the team will be formed end of registration and will be formed to one Pick-up team and if needed added to Main teams.
- If there are more than 10 people wishing place in pick-up team, then selection rules are (in order of priority, higher first):
– match main teams level
– order of registration (who registers sooner, has priority)
- Pickup team will be formed first and then players will be added to Main teams.
- If you cannot participate, let us know as soon as possible on Facebook or by e-mail.
- If pick-up player is added to main team, that does not make him/her part of main team and does not give the any right for awards, you still are pick-up player.
Loose mixed (3 male and 1 female players, offence decides 5th player gender).
League consists of 4 tournaments. Each tournament will have all main teams play against each other in a group format tournament. Also each team will play against Pick-up in a special game.
Main teams will get League Points (LPs) based on the results of the tournament. I place 5 LPs, II place 3 LPs, III place 2 LPs, IV place 1 LPs.
If the Main team wins against the Pick-up team, they get 1 additional LP. Games against Pick-Ups are separate. They do not contribute to the group format tournament.
Tournament winner is decided by:
1. Game wins
2. Head to head match
3. Overall score difference
4. Overall points scored
5. Closed-circle score difference
6. Closed-circle points scored.
League winner is the team with the most LPs, followed by tournament decider order.
Tournament games are of loose mixed format, 3 men and 1 women on the field plus offence decides the 5th player on the field. If needed, captains can agree a different rotation rule before the game.
8-hour tournaments will have time-cap 40 minutes and point-cap 21 and for sand tournament 15.
During each game, both teams can take two 1-minute timeout. Time-outs in the last 3 minutes of game time are not allowed. If timeout is taken then and if team has timeout left, play will continue as with check-in, but if there were no timeout left for team, it means turnover.
Organizers retain the rights to tweak the rules to tournaments/League to improve the competition.
