Yes!
We've just revised the premium to reflect Intro.

When will it be available in the VT courses?

Probably April 1st.

Er, perhaps a different date than April Fools Day is in order? ;-)

What is BA?

BA is the NADAC acronym for the Beginners Agility program developed by NADAC.  It has level 1 ,2 and 3.

And many dogs with BA titles!

Will the intro level make it's way into EGC? Just putting it out there.

Yes, EGC is part of NADAC.  I did say that EGC, just like TTW would have Intro.  We can't offer it in only "some" classes, it will be offered in all classes.

What great idea.  When I first started trialing with Dazzle she had trouble keeping her brain intact for more than a few obstacles.  We sometimes ran only part of the novice course until she got more experience in the trial environment.  NADAC is always innovating.  Seems also perfect for some of our senior retired dogs who might like to still play the game and have fun on a shorter course that doesn't wear them out.

EGC classes are Extreme Chances, Extreme Gaters, Extreme Barrelers and Extreme Hoopers.  The very first post ever writing in this thread does list those classes!  So yes, EGC, as a part of NADAC is included.  All NADAC classes are included.

Just wondering what Hoopers will look like in the Intro level? I'm thinking three non-test hoops and one test?

Thanks,

I have not done any Strategic Hoopers Intro designs yet.  Several trials offering Hoopers, but they are all Numbered Hoopers.  We rarely see Strategic Hoopers.  It would just be one test, so it would actually be a "numbered hoopers" without the numbers as they have no choice on where to go in the pattern, so it is no longer "strategic" at the Intro level.

We are offering strategic hoopers and have added Intro. If it just becomes numbered that means you are designating which test they have to do? I was guessing that they would do three non-test hoops and then one test of their choice.

Thanks,

In Intro we remove all obstacles that are not to be taken.  That makes it easy for the Intro teams to not have to deal with complicating things.
