2024 JCAC SUMMER SCHEDULE

Jumping Chollas Agility Club (JCAC) hosts a lot of fun events for our members and students to stay active this summer. All activities will be held at the Jumping Chollas Patch (25128 N. 15th Ave.).  A full schedule & description of JCAC Mini-Trials, VTs, Fun Runs, & Open Patch events are listed below.  You can also download schedule in PDF form. 

Mini-Trials
Summer Mini-Trials are open to everyone and are a great opportunity for new handlers and/or dogs to get experience in a small trial setting. If you are unsure about entering a trial, please ask your current instructor if you are ready. You can also, check out “Is Your Team Ready” at https://tinyurl.com/Is-Your-Team-Ready   Mini-Trials are a laidback version of a regular trial. Due to the summer heat, the trials are held at night with a start time around 6:30pm. Like regular season trials, you may request a Trial Mentor to help you during the Mini-Trials. You can request a Trial Mentor by emailing the Trial Secretary. Mini-Trial premiums are found on the JCAC website under events or go to the link here; 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. Unfortunately, no Intro VT courses will be offered. A signup sheet with start/run times will be posted via the JCAC Groups.io email group the week/weekend before each VT. You must sign up via the form to attend.
 
Fun Runs
Summer Fun Runs are a great way to get practice in. Each Fun Run will have a specific course set on the North Field. Proctor names are listed below. Proctors will send an email via the JCAC io email group with more information the weekend before each event. Everyone should get at least two chances to run the course (could be more if time allows). Please arrive early to help the proctor 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 the Fun Run. All NADAC exercise/equipment can be setup on the South field for all to work on. Non-NADAC equipment (teeter/tire) should not be used on the South field unless approved by the Fun Run Proctor. Please reply to the Proctors email if you plan to attend so, they know who is attending

 

Open Patch

Open Patch events are an open practice event. The assigned Proctor may setup a course or a set of exercise(s) of their choosing on the North Field. Proctor names are listed below. Proctors will send an email via the JCAC Groups.io email group with more information the weekend before each event. Like Fun Runs the South field is open for handlers to practice on NADAC style equipment (no teeter or tire unless approved by proctor). Please reply to the Proctors email if you plan to attend so, they know who is attending.
