United Kennel Club Announces Changes for Youth Nationals
Now entering its 15th year, the UKC Youth National Championship is considered as the granddaddy event of the year for many coonhound youth. It’s a “World Hunt type event” for kids only, if you will. It draws young hunters and bench show enthusiasts from all over the country. Not only have many of its past champions gone on to win other major events, their kids are now participating at the Nationals.
For the most part, the format for the Youth Nationals has remained the same. Starting in 2015, however, you will see several changes, including a few significant ones. UKC is always looking on ways to improve on their programs, and we think the changes implemented are an effort in that direction. UKC is excited about it and we hope the kids and parents will agree.
