Watch out youngsters, the Seniors are coming. Agility has
been built on the idea that 'agility is fun' but we think it should be changed to
'agility is fun for all.' That's regardless of breed, size or age. The wonderful thing about
agility is that it is not just for the youngsters and the fleet of foot. If you can steer your dog
around the course, then you have a chance for a place or clear round rosette. We want to recognise those
handlers who are no longer young and fleet of foot, and that's why we've started the Senior Agility League (SAL).
After all is said and done, age is just a number!
Since 1979, when the sport
of Agility was introduced at Crufts, it has
grown and grown to be the most popular dog activity in the UK. Once addicted, agility people don't seem
to retire. They get another dog. They take a joint supplement. If they can't run faster, they
learn to run smarter. It's not uncommon now for handlers to still be competing in their 60s+.
And that's why we are
setting up the Senior Agility League to celebrate age and mature handling. So if you are 55
years old or over, you are eligible to join the Senior Agility League (SAL) There is no annual
membership fee or need to show your birth certificate. To register just go to or
if you just want to know what it's all about, go to the
League home page
If you have any questions whatsoever,
email the League administrator Ellen Rocco.
2017 is now open for registration. It is not necessary to re-register if you were a member in
2016 or before. Just start adding your points and watch them grow.
We are delighted to
announce that the Big Dog Bed Company has agreed to sponsor the Senior League.

Q, How soon should I add my points?
As soon as possible so that everyone can see how you are doing in The League, though
officially you have until The League closes on 21 December to add your points
Q. Some unaffiliated shows allow dogs to run at their own level rather than the
level of the handler. For example, when dogs are KC Grade 3 but are allowed to run in
Elementary under a different organisation. Can you claim these points?
Q. I have won out. Do I need to change my Grade?
No, your dog remains in the category it started in January of the current year for the
duration of the year.
Q. What system should I use to calculate points from a KC Limited show?
The points are the same as a KC Open show, Unaffiliated shows have different points values.
Click here to see Points Table.
Q. Why does my dog have to be registered with the Kennel Club?
The League needs set a criteria to work with such as levels, heights, recognised breeds etc.
Q. Do wins / places have to be clear rounds to count or can faults be involved?
A place is a place. Claim it.
When I try to
register or add in points, I keep getting sent back to the Login screen. What do I do.
A. Click here for
help. It's all about cookies
- and not the eatable kind.
Q. As a resident in
N Ireland, I frequently compete in the Republic of Ireland under Irish KC rules and regs. Do
wins under IKC rules count and if so, in which category -- KC or unaffiliated?
A. As the Two Kennel Clubs have
similar standards - rules and regs, your points would count as KC.
Thank you to John Ward and the
DARL Rescue League for their help
with the League Tables.
