What does the AFTCA do for the sport of Field Trialing?

The impact of the Amateur Field Trial Clubs of America (AFTCA) organization is felt directly across the entire Open and Amateur sport of UKC/American Field events and indirectly across competition events held for other Pointing Dog Registries. With a strong 100+ year history of providing leadership in the design and format of the highest standards of performance in pointing dog competition and all that it requires, the AFTCA’s influence is undeniable.

AFTCA’s mission to assist Clubs and Individual members participating in all aspects of Open and Amateur events is outlined in an impressive growing list of programs designed to be delivered directly to our membership. Whether Open or Amateur, the extraordinary benefits provide welcome guidance, assistance, and rewards. If you field trial in any Field Dog Stud Book event, the AFTCA is for you! Learn more
