Team USA Selection Process
20 dog and handlers make up the IFCS team (5 per jump height). A points system was used to determine the first four team members per height. One team member per IFCS jump height was selected from Cynosports. Three team members per height were selected from the Team Selection Event. In addition one team member and dog were selected from a previous year’s IFCS medalist. The previous medalist position and alternate handlers and dogs were chosen by the team coach with USDAA approval, after the World Team Selection Event in January 2016.

If you have any questions regarding the process please email Rachel Sanders at ifcsteamcoach@usdaa.com.
