Annual Overall High Point AKC Field Trial Awards

(Open to All)

Definition of Points:  Points are awarded for placements in AKC field trials as follows: 1st – 5 points, 2nd – 3 points, 3rd – 2 points, 4th  - 1 point.
 For the NCC placements, the points are doubled – 1st - 10, 2nd – 6, 3rd – 4, 4th -2.  Points are accumulated beginning with the first
 field trial after the NCC through the following year’s NCC.

Weighted Points – Points are calculated by multiplying the number of points earned for the placement, as stated above,
 by the number of dogs that started the trial.  Example:
  1st place in a 20 dog trial would be worth 100 weighted points – 5 (points for 1st place) x 20 (number of dogs in the trial) = 100 (weighted points).

These Annual awards are presented at the NCC event each year.  These points are calculated for all dogs
 competing in AKC Cocker/English Cocker field trials and are open to all dogs to win. The calculation of each high point award begins
 with the first trial after the prior year’s NCC and concludes with the current year’s NCC championship points.

The points for the weighted high point dog do NOT include the current year’s NCC championship points
