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!

Some handlers and dogs have reached special milestones which is why we created the SAL Hall of Fame in 2017. Nominations for outstanding achievement and / or longevity are welcome. Email with details.

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 set 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.

SAL 2021 is now open for registration. It is not necessary to re-register if you are or have been a member. Just start adding your points and watch them grow.

On Facebook, Jackie Gardner said, 'I'm excited at the prospect, and hopefully you are as well, of being able to send a GB Team to the new FCI Senior Open Agility World Championships. But with all the things that will involve the KC, we need to gauge the interest/support if we want to try and get them involved and back this.'

12th October 2023


This year will be the 17th anniversary of the Senior Agility League (SAL), a league exclusively for competitors over the age of 55.

Since it started, there have been many changes to dog agility including larger courses and more running! Thankfully we've also seen the rise of distance handling.

As you probably know, UKA has been sold new owners and will be known as Agility4All (A4A) as of 1st January. I am pleased to say that we will be continuing our relationships them.

We are delighted that YuMove will be continuing it's support.

Don't forget to claim all your points from 23rd December 2022. If you are in doubt of any of the rules, check out the regulations below. Remember that any placing that gets a numbered rosettes or clear rounds in time counts. They must be submitted no later than 21st December 2023, so do it now.


YuMOVE is the New Senior Agility League Sponsor

YuMOVE is pleased to announce their sponsorship of 2022 Agilitynet Senior Agility League.

They said, 'At YuMOVE, we’re always on the lookout for great partnership opportunities that allow us to further our mission of helping every dog live their most active life, for life. The Senior Agility League has a special place in our hearts. That's because we believe dog agility is such a great pastime, it should have no age limit. By supporting the over 55s in the League, we want to do our bit to encourage people and pets of all ages to stay active, energised and passionate for life.

To those competing in the League, we at YuMOVE would like to wish you all a very heartfelt best of luck!'

2022 Results

With between 400-500 agility shows on the Agilitynet Show Diary at any one time in 2022, agility is well and truly back and thriving - and that's good news for the Over 55s. It means more shows to collect more points for the League and smaller classes as well. Well done everyone who participated in the 2022 League. Every little point counts and proves that the older generation is not going to go away.

There are some old friends on the list of winners and some new faces at the top of the leader board. But the most important thing, is that everyone has had fun. Please encourage your friends and club mates to have a go. There are more opportunities to chalk up those points than ever before.

Many thanks to John Ward for his work on the SAL database and to YuMove for their support. Trophies for the 1st place winners from Crystal Vision and the gorgeous rosettes from Norton.

Senior Agility League Rules
(10th August 2023)

Please note that by submitting your application for the Senior Agility League, you are agreeing to the rules below:-

1. The Senior Agility League (The League) is open to handlers aged 55 years and over on 1st January in the current year. You may claim points from the beginning of the year that you are 55 years of age.

2. Dogs entered in The League must be registered with the Kennel Club.

3. The League will run from 1st January to 21st December in each year. It will re-open on 23rd December. Points from shows between 22nd December and 31st December can be carried forward to the next year.

4.The League is organised into four main categories, based upon the age of the handler on 1st January with four sub-categories in each according to size (Large, Intermediate, Medium & Small)

  • Gold:- 55 -59 years

  • Ruby: 60 -64 years

  • Platinum: 65 - 69 years

  • Diamond: 70+ years

5. Points can be claimed from places and clear rounds from open classes at all shows but not pairs, teams, qualifiers, club matches, leagues, fun days or simulated/training in the ring shows etc.

6. When claiming points, the show, day (optional), class and place must be stated. The administrator reserves the right to assess if the show is eligible under the above guidelines.

7. Placed points can only be claimed if a placed rosette (i.e. a rosette with a number on it) is presented by the show.

8. Clear round points can be claimed even if clear round rosettes are not given by the show but must be within the course time.

9. The Dog will remain in the category/level it starts in on 1st January for the duration of that year. If a dog transfers to 'Allsorts' during the year, please contact the administrator.

10. It is the responsibility of the Handler/Owner to update their registration each year.

11. The Handler/Owner is responsible for changing the categories if required, when starting the year.

12. It is the Handler/Owner's responsibility to send their points via post or submit points on-line.

13. There is no time limit to claim points during that year, although we would encourage you to do so on a monthly basis.

14. Final results for the year must be received by 21st December of the current year. The winners will be announced on Agilitynet and Agilitynet Facebook.

15. Points claimed for the combination of dog and handler cannot be claimed when run by another handler, even if registered with The League.

16. If the Handler/Owner wins out or moves up a level at any time during the year, they can change the grade but itis not necessary. It is the handle who counts, not the dog.

17. Allsorts dogs are welcome to join The League. Only points from special classes such as Anysize, Allsorts and Veterans can be claimed. Allsorts points cannot be used in the 'main' League. If a dog moves to Allsorts mid-year, points cannot be transferred from Standard classes. If no places are awarded by the show for the class, clear round points can be claimed.

18. It is not necessary to re-register each year if the Handler participated in the League the previous year.

19. If you run in any Kennel Club show, when registering you must use the KC height specifications. If you only attend UKA/A4A or independent shows, then choose the KC height closest to the one you run at.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. During this difficult Coronavirus time when most shows have been cancelled, can I add points from online and video shows?

        A. We've a had a good think about it and decided that points earned on these shows should not be included. We have decided to merge 2020 and 2021 points so all is not lost.

Q, How soon should I add my points?

A. 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?

A. Yes

Q. I have won out. Do I need to change my Grade?

A. You can if you want. Your dog remains in the category it started in January of the current year for the duration of the year. It is the age of the handler that matters.

Q. What system should I use to calculate points from a KC Limited show?

A. The points are the same as a KC Open show, Unaffiliated shows have different points values. Click here to see Points Table above.

Q. Why does my dog have to be registered with the Kennel Club?

A. 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. A place is a place. Claim it.

Q. 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.
