To encourage Juniors 5-18 years...
Sponsor a Junior
2013 will be the first year that a GB Team will compete in the Open Junior Agility Championships in Holland on 28-29 September. This is a big opportunity for junior handlers.
Ffion Hughes (16) is looking for as much sponsorship as possible on behalf of the Squad as they have to raise approximately £1000 per handler which in total would be around £10,000. If you are able to help in any way, it would really be appreciated by the whole Squad. If you require more information regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact Ffion via email.
Agility for Juniors' aim is to look at developing how young handlers are preparing themselves for the future and encourage their interest in the sport of dog Agility.
Open Junior Agility Championships
I have decided to write and give you all some information regarding the 1st Open Junior Agility Championships (OJAC) which will take place on 25-26 February 2011 in Gloucestershire (UK). Here is a little more about the event.
The event will be run over two days with handlers from all over the world coming together to compete at this world class event designed just for them. OJAC will not be like any usual junior show or event as this weekend has been designed to showcase the brilliant young handlers and their dogs in the sport of dog agility. Teams from Belgium Holland and USA are already signed up.
There will be an opening ceremony where each individual country will be welcomed into the Main arena before the event starts with a special guest opening the event. World-renowned judges have been brought in to kick off the competition and to provide handlers with courses to challenge their ability. It's an opportunity not to be missed. It will provide junior handlers will some great experience for other big events they may be striving to reach, such as Crufts, Olympia and Grand Finals weekend.
Doggy Jumps has kindly agreed to sponsor the event while the Individual Class sponsor will be Genesis Pet food.
