WCA Junior Program
The purpose of the Junior Handling Program is to encourage and promote interest in Weimaraners in our Young adults. Also, to honor those who show outstanding qualities in furthering the capabilities of the Weimaraner. These rules can assist Junior Members in setting goals and working towards those accomplishments.
We would like to see youth challenge themselves to that end. These are life skills that can start at a young age. The WCA is very supportive of its youth program but it also takes the adult members and local clubs to promote this program and offer opportunities for the youth to participate in.
Please contact Barb Taylor with your results or any questions you may have.
