USDAA announced that the 2014 Cynosport World Games will take place October 15 through 19 at the Morgan Hill Outdoor Sports Center in Morgan Hill, California. The qualifying period begins in mid September, 2013 so the RAT USDAA trial will “count” towards qualifying for the California games. While the USDAA office has not announced the specific details for 2014, the 2013 qualifications were:
- Two Qs – Grand Prix/Performance Grand Prix
- Two Qs – Steeplechase/Performance Speed Jumping
- One Q – Dog Agility Masters Team/Performance Versatility Pairs
All of the above tournament classes are open to all dogs, regardless of what level they compete in, meaning that you can enter a “baby” dog in any tournament class, or you can enter a very experienced Masters/Elite level dog from another venue. If you have any questions regarding USDAA, please contact RAT’s USDAA trial chair Julie Pitt.
