2014 Super Retriever Series Crown Championship

Welcome to the 2014 Super Retriever Series Crown Championship, presented by the Huntsville Sports Commission in Huntsville, Alabama. Fall is in the air, the mornings are crisp and the leaves are starting to turn. This usually means the SRS touring season is coming to an end and we are heading to Alabama for the Crown Championship. We are so happy to be in Huntsville for the 8th consecutive year. The Huntsville Sports Commission, the Raymond Jones family and all the Sponsors from Huntsville have been a huge support for the love and sport of dogs and we are honored to show these true sporting dog athletes off in this wonderful city.

We have had many qualifiers all over the country this year and we have our largest ever field here from the dock. The SRS Super Dock had a fast and furious summer, double and triple booked on most weekends, and that caught us a little off guard. We are happy to see this field of wonderful dogs, from Mini fly to Elite flyers that literally stretch from California to New York. This will be a site to see on the dock.
At the Retriever Trials we will be seeing some of the best dog/handler teams in the Nation. They will be competing for the 2014 Crown and a $10,000.00 purse ( based on full entry).  The field is set at 31 and will go to the Final 4 on Sunday morning. So grab a lawn chair and make your way to the field and to the dock for the BEST Sporting Dog Action in the land.

Please look below for all information that is updated periodically.  So check back before you leave!!!

 

LIVESTREAM OCT 30-NOV2 – ( Oct 30 will be a setup day but will be a static live stream of retriever Trials.)
Event location, dates and times are tentative and subject to change.
