The BCSA Juniors Program, which is open to all Border Collie junior handlers, was organized last year and we are committed to supporting, educating and encouraging junior handlers; because we feel they are the future of the dog fancy.  Since this is a new Program , we have a long way to go and would love to have your input on what we can do to better this program and/or what you would like to see included in this program.  This page will keep you up-to-date on the program and we would also like to include a profile and photo for each of our Junior Handlers. Please drop us a note if you would like to be included.

We spotlight our Junior stars at the National Specialty with a special recognition during our "Social" and also include their photo and profile in the Specialty catalog.  We would like all Border Collie Junior Handlers to contact us so that we can recognize you too.  We would like to hear all about you and introduce you to the rest of the world. We celebrate your love for the breed and would like to encourage you to remain active well into your adulthood.

If you are a junior member or your family is a BCSA member, please contact Amanda (email above) with any questions, your ideas for the program and to send your photo and profile.  If you would like to become a member, visit our Membership page.  We look forward to hearing from you!
