2022 JCAC SUMMER SCHEDULE

Jumping Chollas Agility Club (JCAC) will be hosting a lot of fun stuff for all our members and students to stay active this summer. All activities will be held at the Cholla Patch (25128 N. 15th Ave, Phoenix AZ.). JCAC summer Fun Runs are typically for JCAC members & students only, but Mini-Trials are open to everyone. If you are a new handler, please check with your current instructor and/or Training Director Wendy Hultsman to ensure you are ready to enter trials. Like full regular season trials, you may request a Trial Mentor to help you during the trial. A full schedule of all the JCAC Mini-Trials, VTs, & Fun Runs is listed below.

 

       Mini-Trials:

Summer Mini-Trials are a very good opportunity for new handlers and dogs to get experience in a small trial setting. All students that have completed at least Intermediate 1 are eligible to run. Mini-Trials are more laid back versions of a regular trial. They are at night with a start time around 6:30 pm and typically only offer 2 runs for all levels (Intro – Elite). Mini-Trial premiums are found on the JCAC website under events https://www.jumpingchollas.com/trials-events

 

       Video-Trials (VTs):

VTs are another wonderful opportunity for new handlers and dogs to get experience in running full courses in a laidback atmosphere. The cost to sign up and run in a VT is $5/dog and will need to be paid when you arrive. Please bring exact payment as change may not be available. Each dog will get 2 runs during a VT. During the Regular course VTs 4 runs may be possible if time allows. Unlike all other trials, VTs do not have an assigned Judge to score your runs. Since there is no judge you will need to bring a video recording device (phone or a tablet) to record your run. If you ran a clean run, you can then submit the video to NADAC & pay the $10/run fee to get your run Q recorded. More detailed VT instructions, rules, and how to submit runs can be found on the NADAC website. Unlike Mini-Trials, VTs are for Novice-Elite dogs. No Intro courses will be offered at VTs. A signup sheet with start/run times will be posted via the JCAC io group email the week/weekend before each.

 

     Fun Runs:

The Summer Fun Runs start at 7pm-ish and end about 9:30pm or when everyone has run twice (could be more if time warrants). Please arrive a bit early to help set the course on the North field. The course being set will be for Novice-Elite levels. Beginner 1 to Intermediate 1 students will have the opportunity to practice on the South field during Fun Run days. All NADAC exercise/equipment can be setup on the South field for all to work on. Non-NADAC equipment should not be used on the South field unless approved by the person/persons in charge of the fun run. If you have any question or need help, please do not hesitate to ask the person/persons in charge of the Fun Run (names are posted below w/ schedule). You may come to some or all the fun runs.  If you desire, you can pay for all 6 Fun Runs at the discounted rate of $40 for JCAC members & $50 for non-members. If you wish to pay individually the cost is $8 for JCAC members & $10 for non-members.
