A Celebration of Achievement!
UpDog International Finals
April 5,6,7,8,9, 2017 at
St. Louis, MO
You should expect something very UpDog. Clever, quirky, cheeky and focused on fun and growth. Our goal is to provide teams with an experience they won’t forget. This event is by competitors for competitors.
We love to give prizes and awards not only to the best competitors but also other categories that we feel contribute to the heart and soul of UpDog. Our desire is to support, encourage and recognize the growth and achievement of every team. You never know what cool award or prize we may hand out next. We will do everything we can to surprise you, wow you, and make sure you have a pretty amazing experience.
*Competitors should look for the “Personal Best” Achievement handed out by judges when a team exceeds their previous personal best in a game.
This has grown from a 3 day event to a 5 day event. We will play every UpDog game and award the top finishing competitors in each game Saturday and Sunday evening.
January 1st through December 30th is our qualifying season.
Any points earned during the qualification season at any UDC sanctioned event will count towards UpDIF Qualification
You must be an UpDog member (an activated team) during the qualification period to be eligible to attend the International Finals.
