Major International Sweepstakes Class (ISC) Qualifying Events

There are six major ISC qualifying events for the 2014 AKC/USA Agility World Team Tryouts in Hopkins, Minn. "Clean run" scores from the following ISC Classes at 14, 18- and 26-inches may be used to fulfill the minimum requirements of 8 Std/8 JWW requirements. In addition, ISC Combined Class winners at these events will receive an invitation to the World Team Tryouts. The 2014 Agility World Championship is scheduled to be held in Luxemburg. The following events will feature ISC qualifiers:

A "clean run" consists of a run without time or course faults. Minimum YPS requirements are waived for these scores, as long as the dog is under the course time set by the judge for that class. Two ISC jumpers and two ISC standard scores may be used to fulfill the minimum requirements.

ISC Combined Class Winners

Combined scores from ISC Jumpers and Standard classes at the above events will be used to award the Combined ISC Class Award. Only Clean Run (no time or course faults) scores will be used to compute the Combined Score. The Combined Class winner from the 14, 18 and 26 inch height is invited to attend Team Tryouts. They do not need to fulfill the requirement of the 8/8 scores nor are they required to achieve the 4 double Q scores. The dog must have an approved pedigree and also fulfill any requirements for specific rabies shots or titering. The team must also send in all the required information including the dog’s competition record with the fees and the entry form and meet all the other basic eligibility noted in the 2014 World Team Tryout Premium List. The handler at tryouts must be the same handler who won the combined award.
