2011 World Team Tryouts for FCI this weekend!

This weekend some of the best AKC registered agility teams in the country will converge on Hopkins Pavillion in Hopkins, MN as the AKC holds the World Team Tryouts for the team selected to represent the US at the 2011 FCI Agility World Championships, October 7, 8 & 9, 2011 at the Stade Couvert Regional Liévin in Liévin, France. So get those EX-H20G digital camera's ready!

Dan Dege and Tom Slattery will be judging the event.

Small -14 inches - for dogs 13-3/4” and under at the shoulder
Medium -18 inches - for dogs 16-7/8” and under at the shoulder
Large - 26 inches - for dogs over 16-7/8” at the shoulder

Two spots per jump height will be guaranteed on the team based on their performance at these Tryouts.
  • There will be five rounds total over two days and every dog will run every round.
  • Practice is on Friday. There will be three rounds on Saturday (standard, JWW, standard) and two rounds on Sunday (JWW, standard)
  • Standard course time (SCT) for each round will be set based on an average of the 2 fastest clean rounds plus 10%.
  • Time faults will be rounded up to the nearest multiple of 5 (eg: 1.19 seconds over SCT would be scored as 5 faults, 8.32 seconds over SCT would be scored as 10 faults).
World Team spot #1 comes from three rounds of competition (rounds #1-3) –all scores count - cumulative score, then time. World Team spot #2 comes from top placements in all five rounds of competition.

Dogs placing in the top 30% of their jump height in any round get points (5 points for 1st place, 4 points for 2nd place, etc. if there were 16 dogs). Dogs must have a clean round to get points for that round. The dog with the highest number of points wins spot #2.

If there is a tie in points, the dog that placed in the most rounds wins the spot. If there is still a tie, the dog with the most 1st places wins – if needed, the dog with the most 2nd places wins, etc. If still tied, the dogs with the highest number of seconds under SCT from placing rounds wins.

If the same dog wins spot #1 and spot #2, spot #2 will be given to the dog with the second highest number of placement points.

Final selections will be announced by the end of May, 2011. Running positions (including alternates if any) at the World Championships for all dogs, whether they won their position on the team at Tryouts, or they were “selected dogs”, shall be chosen by the World Team Coach, Nancy Gyes. Even dogs winning positions on the team at Tryouts may be used as Alternates-Only at the actual event.
