UK Agility – new opportunities and challenges
On 1st May 2004 UK Agility will be launched to the British agility community. UK Agility is the new competition format providing the opportunity for success to all who compete under this innovative system.
UK Agility Shows will be hosted by clubs, individuals or private training centres with the backing and support of an experienced team offering a complete show management service.
This fresh concept has been researched and developed by the UK Agility management team, Greg Derrett, Jim Gregson and Laura Manchester, who between them have over 30 years experience in training, judging and competing in Agility both in the UK and overseas. During this time they have observed dramatic changes and developments in the sport. They have listened to the views of competitors from all levels of agility and experienced how this sport is run in many other countries. This unique combination of knowledge, hands on experience and success has allowed them to create an unsurpassed system; they have created a system which those devoted to agility have wished for. UK Agility’s aim is to develop and promote the growth of agility with the emphasis on safety and fun for every dog and handler.
By redefining the existing boundaries UK Agility offers two Programmes in which to progress to achieve Championship titles: The Performance Programme and The Steeplechase Programme. Competitors may work in both Programmes. Using a point based formula all dogs and handlers who perform well are rewarded in line with their achievement.
Do you have a dog who regularly goes clear but just can’t match the speed of the other dogs? With UK Agility your foot sure and accurate dog would be rewarded for their talents. By collecting points for every clear round not only will you progress through the levels but you will be able to achieve Championship titles.
For those who wish to be seen as the ‘best of the best’, win-based Championship titles are also obtainable.
With UK Agility all dogs are offered the opportunity to become a Champion.
UK Agility offers 4 different jump heights within each class, enabling all sizes to be catered for equally.
With results recorded, not only will you be able to keep track of your progress but National league tables will be accessible online.
National Finals will be run by UK Agility, with all levels being able to participate in the event. These finals will run regardless of a sponsor’s support.
Keen to host a show? To find out more and become part of the future of agility log on to www.UKAgility.com
Register your dog now and compete at the first official UK Agility show being held on 10th & 11th July 2004, Newbury Showground.
For those who do not have access to the web, look out for UK Agility officials at forthcoming shows, they will be more than happy to explain the programmes and issue you a registration form. All clubs will be shortly sent information packs, so ask your club secretary.
Available for UK Agility’s opening year, dogs who register with UK Agility which are currently competing under other organisations will automatically transfer over to the UK Agility equivalent class.
All dogs and handlers who register during May 2004 will receive a 50% discount. Registered owners/handlers will receive a copy of the UK Agility Rule book and a free record book for each dog they register.
