Trying out for the Team?
The Intent to Compete Form (the form may be filled out online) must be filed in advance of competing at any event at which a competitor wishes to earn Team Selection Points. In any case, the form must be filed with the Team Coach no later than March 31, 2011. To encourage early filing of the form, a date field has been provided on the form to indicate the date after which points are to be earned. No points may be earned by a competitor prior to the indicated date.
The completed form can be sent one of the following methods:
- Via email: IFCSTeamCoach@USDAA.com
- Via fax: 972-231-9700
- Via US Postal Service:
Attn: Team Coach
P.O. Box 850955
Richardson, TX, 75085
The Team Coach shall acknowledge receipt of this information no later than ten business days after receipt. The Intent to Compete form includes a section to be completed by a Certified Measuring Judge (CMJ). This is a preliminary determination of the dog’s eligibility. Final determination is made by a panel of judges at the Cynosport Games.
The Intent to Compete form may be submitted without a CMJ signature in the event the handler is unable to obtain a signature from a CMJ by the required submission date. However, the handler must attach a note on the Intent to Compete form indicating the date by which they expect to comply with this requirement. The final opportunity for compliance with this requirement is the first Four-Star or Regional event attended by the prospective team member at which there is a designated CMJ present; the signature obtained at that event shall be considered final for purposes of the Intent to Compete form.
Once you have submitted your Intent to Compete Form and your registration as been approved, you will receive login credentials. Approved Candidates will have the ability to record their points earned at the Team Selection Events.
