REG 1       GEnERAl TERMS
            REG 1.1 Normally, the European Universities Championships (EUC) are organised every year.
            REG 1.2 The EUCs are organised in EUSA and Olympic spirit by which no discrimination is allowed against
                    any country or person on grounds of race, religion or political affiliation.
            REG 1.3 Participants (teams or individuals) would be nominated through their national university federa-
                    tion. If no team is nominated in the defined term EUSA is authorised to accept entry form from
                    single University, but is obliged to inform the corresponding NUSA.
            REG 1.4 Only the following may participate as competitors in an EUSA championship:
                    REG 1.4.1 students who are officially registered for and pursuing a course of study at a universi-
                                   ty or similar institute whose status as an institution of higher education is recognised
                                   by the appropriate national authority of their country;

            REG 1.5 Non-members of EUSA may enter via a reserve list at a higher fee.
            REG 1.6 The Championship structure as well as the number of athletes/teams per country for any EUC will
                    be decided by the EC on receipt of recommendation(s) from the Technical Commission.
            REG 1.7 The EC will normally attribute the EUC about 15 months ahead to a member federation based
                    on a written bid document. Members will be notified about the exact deadlines in due course.
            REG 1.8 Potential hosts of larger events may submit a proposal including a full bid document at any time,
                    but at a minimum of 24 months ahead of the date of the event. The EC will consider the bid upon
                    arrival in terms of general quality and acceptance. In case of a positive result, all member federations
                    will be notified about the intention to attribute the event specifying the venue, the dates and the
                    sports. All countries may oppose or present their own bid within a period of 6 months. After that
                    deadline, the EC will make a decision. The concerned sports will not be available for any further bids.

            REG 2.8     If a person, who has been refused a competitor’s identity card, attempts to compete by means of
                        fraud, he will be excluded from the event and the Executive Committee of EUSA will consider if
                        this exclusion should apply also to all future sporting events of EUSA.
                        Should this fraud be attempted in a team event, the team will also be excluded from the
                        Championship and any earlier results in the current championship will be cancelled.

                        competitor(s), the team of the sport concerned will be excluded from further participation in
                        the current championship: such fraud could be grounds for the termination of that country’s

                                    must receive information regarding who will be attending, and their status.
                        PRO 1.4.3 In general, it is not expected that VIP’s, official representatives or officials will be ac-

DSC 1       inTRoDUCTion
            DSC 1.1 The EUSA Championships should be enjoyed by all participants, as is reflected in the oath of the
                    competitors and officials:
                    “On behalf of all students; I promise that we shall take part in this Championship, respecting the rules
                    which govern it, in the true spirit of friendship, fair-play and sportsmanship, for the honour of our coun-
                    try and our University and for the progress of the European University Sports Movement”.
                    “In the name of all the judges and officials, I promise that we shall officiate in this Championship
                    with complete impartiality, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern it, in the true spirit of
                    sportsmanship”.

            DSC 1.2 Both competitors and officials are seeking, at all EUSA events, to perform to the best of their
                    ability and to respect others. However, circumstances have arisen in some EUSA events where
                    individuals and teams have allowed their behaviour to fall below an acceptable standard. This
                    document sets out some guidelines for athletes and for organising committees.




                                                                                                                                  EUC Disciplinary Protocol
DSC 2       bREAChES of DiSCiPlinE DURinG CoMPETiTion
            In most cases, match officials deal with disciplinary incidents on the field of play, within the rules as set out
            by the governing body for that sport. The following sanctions may apply in EUSA events:
            DSC 2.1 In incidents where a player is dismissed from the field of play (in particular for violent conduct
                      against an opposing player) the player will miss the next match in the tournament. In extreme
                      circumstances, the SCAC may ban a player from the remainder of the competition.
            DSC 2.2 Where a player exhibits violent or threatening conduct towards an official, it is likely that the
                      player will be banned from the remainder of the competition, and from any future EUSA events.
                      The SCAC will determine the degree of severity of the punishment, which will reflect the severity
                      of the conduct.
            DSC 2.3 Where a team exhibits violent or threatening behaviour towards officials or opposing teams,
                      the SCAC may place a warning about its future conduct. Failure to exhibit good behaviour for all
                      remaining matches may result in the team being banned from the remainder of the competition.
            DSC 2.4 Where a team is banned from the competition for either persistent unacceptable behaviour on
                      the field of play, or for extreme examples of violent or threatening behaviour, the delegation will
                      be expected to leave the athlete village at the earliest possible opportunity, as agreed with the
                      SCAC.
            DSC 2.5 Where a team is banned from a competition for violent or threatening behaviour, a fine of
                      300 Euros will be imposed. That University may not participate in any future EUSA event until
                      the fine has been received by the EUSA office. This punishment may also be imposed where the
                      behaviour in the last match of a tournament falls below acceptable standards.
            DSC 2.6 In cases of teams being banned from competition, the SCAC will submit a report to the Executive
                      Committee of EUSA who may, at their discretion, ban that University from all EUSA competition
                      for a period of 1 or 2 years. In such circumstances a report will be submitted to the rector of that
                      University setting out the reasons for the punishment.
            DSC 2.7 In all cases, the Executive Committee reserves the right to give further consideration to all disci-
                      plinary issues and impose additional penalties if appropriate.

            It is hoped that competitors will be able to enjoy themselves while taking part in a EUSA competition. The
            Association is founded on encouraging students from across Europe to get to know each other, develop
            a greater understanding of each other’s culture and to enjoy fair and competitive sport. For this reason,
            organising committees organise a range of social opportunities for visiting sports people to fully enjoy the
            championship. The following should act as a guide for teams:
            DSC 3.1 Violence or threatening behaviour at EUSA championships will not be accepted. Incidents where
                       law enforcement agencies are involved may lead to athletes being banned from competition or
                       asked to leave the village. Teams may be asked to leave if group behaviour falls below acceptable
                       standards. In such examples a report will be considered by the Executive Committee of EUSA
                       who may ban an institution from subsequent EUSA events. A report will be submitted to the
