There are a few ways a team can be disqualified. If you were referring to relay teams, a dropped baton or a hand-off that occurs outside of the zone can result in a disqualification. Also, if a relay team leaves its lane, the team is disqualified. Whole teams rarely can't disqualify themselves, but rather be removed from Track and Field events. Unsportsmanlike conduct can result in removal of a team, and certain rules regarding the track and the surrounding facilities may be broken, which would also result in a disqualification for the participant(s).
