June 2022 IDAL Courses

Featured

The following courses are for June 2022 IDAL play.

Instructors, if you have some specific skills, scenarios, and/or obstacles you want to work when using the IDAL courses in class, please let me know. I will try my best to get them included. If anyone would like to request a specific game to play, let me know.

Folks are always welcome to try their hand at designing league courses!

Briefing for June 2022

This month we are playing a numbered course. The original 60×90 concept is by Shana Goodwin, one of our junior handlers. I modified it to correct distances and entries. I tried to keep her design ideas throughout all the courses. These are more of an AKC Premier style. There are maps for regular players as well as for our less experienced handlers/dogs.

January 2022 60×90 League Results – CORRECTED

This post is for the results of the 60×90 League. Four clubs ran this month, and it was a close race.

The January 2022 60×90 League was the first time we had separate courses for our less experienced teams. This is currently in a testing phase to evaluate the implementation methodology, practicality, and utility for league players. January 50×70 was a numbered course designed by Melissa Wallace.  The course is scored Time, Plus Faults.

The results for the two courses are separated below. Note that the teams who ran as Initiates ran the regular course, so their scores are added to both sets of results. The Initiates’ scores will count toward league standings because they ran the full course. The separate listing is for their benefit and may be used later for different awards for these teams identified as Initiates and Dabblers.

If anyone would like to design courses for the league, let me know!!!

The efforts of dogs playing in January earn Lifetime Performance Points (LPP) based on the entire field of dogs who have competed on the course. The LPP is a measure of rank based on how they placed in relation to all the other dogs.

January 2022 36×85/40×85 League Results

This post is for the results of the 36×85 League. One club braved the elements this month. It appears to be pretty cold since everyone, including a dog, was wearing jackets. Dogs can wear jackets and such as long as they do not pose a safety hazard.

The January 2022 36×85 League was the first time we had separate courses for our less experienced teams. This is currently in a testing phase to evaluate the implementation methodology, practicality, and utility for league players.

January 2022 IDAL League Courses

Featured

The following courses are for January 2022 IDAL play. We are starting the new year off with some simple, crazy numbered courses. This year the league seasons will be 4 months long, and each season will be a discreet unit. Results will be tallied for the season rather than an entire year; however, end of year results will also be reported. Additionally, each season will include two standard based courses and two games. Folks reported that they enjoyed the games and would like to have them included.

Due to the size constraints of each ring, not all the standard equipment can be used each month. I will try to rotate equipment so that we can get time on all of them. Instructors, if you have some specific skills, scenarios, and/or obstacles you want to work when using the IDAL courses in class, please let me know. I will try my best to get them included. If anyone would like to request a specific game to play, let me know.

NOTE that each league includes a Novice/Open type course. Team Captains should assign their members to that category as appropriate. This assignment should be based on their current level of competition or performance. It is not required that anyone start at that level, even new members. Please read the instructions for the new fault schedule, as this level has some oddities.

If you would like to design courses for the league or learn how to design courses, give me a shout. I will add you to our group. All courses are welcome. I will work with anyone to help you design a successful course be it numbered or a game.

December 2021 IDAL League Courses

Featured

The following courses are for December 2021 IDAL play. This month we have more new courses. This set is based on a course concept by Kayla Hartlage. Kayla was kind enough to send in a 60×90 Jumpers course that had some Premiere style elements. Kayla designed her course on paper and sent it in to me. I kept most of her challenges in there but obviously had to adjust for distances and such. THANKS, KAYLA!

November 2021 IDAL League Courses

The following courses are for November 2021 IDAL play. This month we have some more new courses. The 60×90 course was designed by Shana Goodwin, a strong competitor from K9Cation. Shana is a Junior Handler. Let’s give it up for Shana for putting herself out there and designing courses. Her designs are modified slightly to finesse distances and such in the software. I tried to stay true to her designs. The 36×85 is less true to her design, but again, I tried to stay close.

October 2021 IDAL League Courses

Featured

The following courses are for October 2021 IDAL play. This month we have some more new courses. The 60×90 course concept was designed by Melissa Wallace for competition in TDAA just last month. Obviously, the course has been spaced out for the larger dogs. Interestingly, TDAA has started allowing dogs from 20” to 22” to play as long as the club uses full size equipment. However, the spacing remains tighter than what you have in this month’s league courses. How will the big dogs do? I am curious to find out.

I modified the 60×90 to nest somewhat with the 36×85 and 50×70 course sizes. I am looking forward to running these two courses. I already ran the 60×90 à la TDAA style.

September 2021 IDAL League Courses

Featured

The following courses are for September 2021 IDAL play. This month we are running new courses again. The course concept was designed by Ashley Ragland for competition in TDAA back in 2015. I modified the original concept to fit the equipment size and distances required for League play. I removed the teeter, chute, and tire and changed up the numbering some. Then I scaled the concept for 36×85 and 50×70 course sizes.

The courses are nested based on the A-Frame and central tunnel. A less traditional challenge, but interesting things are showing up in courses nowadays as judges get creative. Backside tunnels were a thing, maybe they will see a comeback. The courses look fun. I hope to set them up in my building with TDAA distances depending on the heat!
