RACCS Points System

So how does this points thing work? Cats must be owned by RACCS members to qualify for points, with points allocated for wins at GCCF and GCCFI shows as published on the GCCF website (see the tables further down this page). The RACCS points year runs from 1 January to 31 December.  For pedigree cats we automatically calculate your cat's points: for the new household pets competition, from January 2016 please submit details of your cat's wins to COTY@raccs.co.uk.

The winners, and all cats who have gained points, are listed on the RACCS website at the end of each year when all the points have been totted up. Prizes for the top cats in each category are awarded at the RACCS AGM.

How many points can you win?
The tables below show the number of points allocated for placings and awards gained at GCCF shows from 2011 onwards. More points are awarded for cats winning at a specialist breed show (ie the ACC, ACA and RBBA shows) and the Supreme shows in recognition of their status. There are even more points awarded for wins at our own shows of course!

The number of points awarded depends on the prizes your cat wins. For example, if your cat wins 1st place in their Breed class, plus the Premier Certificate and Best of Breed, they would be awarded 10 RACCS points (1st & PC=5, BoB =5).
