TRAINING and DEVELOPMENT
AUDIT TO LEARN FROM THE TEAM!
Auditors on the site have a unique opportunity to train with Canada’s Best as they prepare to compete at the IFCS world Championships April 2018.
Each team member on the AAC National team participates in the team’s online training forum, by running monthly drills and sequences and then posting them to the training area of the website.
We are privileged this year to have Justine Davenport, world renown agility Handler and Trainer, as our AAC National Team Coach.
Justine will be preparing a training plan that runs from September 2016 through to the event in April 2017. The training plan will include everything from skill building to obstacle performance, handling challenges, course work and more!
Auditors can watch and learn from team members who post video of coaching assignments each month and all the while, with their auditor fee, support those same team members in their journey to represent Canada at the World Championships!
Each month will include:
- Drills mandatory for each Canadian team member to train, video and post to the page
- Optional skill building exercises
- Optional course work that focusses on the challenges presented by this year judges
- The opportunity to ask questions regarding training and competing at an international level
For auditors this is a great opportunity for those who one day aspire to represent Canada as well as those who just wish to support team Canada and have access to lots of training material.
Becoming an auditor is as easy as clicking a button, and the $125 fee ($100 for AAC members) can be paid online, giving you total access to all the sequences and videos.
The auditing program has proven to be really popular, drawing members from as far away as Australia!
