ADC CovidSafe Return to Training Plan & Key Dates

The Executive Committee and Training Sub-Committee have been working tirelessly to ensure that our return to training is safe for both you and your dogs and has the best outcome for your disjointed training year.


So here are the Key Dates

Remainder of 2021 - we have decided to extend our training year to give everyone time to get back into the agility swing of things.

  • Thursday 29 October : Our “Volunteers” return  (This will be a COVID-19 Safety update / instructing grade refresher / office protocols refresher / Training session)

  • Thursday 4 November: Current Club members who are double vaccinated or medically exempt return in this format.


Session 1

6:15 Arrival for a 6:30 Start (finish time 7:30)

Beginners, Combined Yellow / Green & Purple (Our aim is to have you all progressing up to the next level for the start of the 2022 training year.) 


Session 2

7:15 Arrival for a 7:30 Start (finish time 9pm).

 Pink, Blue & Red

  • Friday 12 November: ADC NIGHT TRIAL 7:30 Start (We welcome all members to come and see a trial in action it is the best way to learn and if your close to starting your competition journey why not why not volunteer it will help answer any questions or remove those doubts you might have).

  • Thursday 18 November: New Intro Intake  (Tell your friends tell your neighbor's those places will fill quick).

  • Thursday  2 December : We welcome back the remainder of our membership.

  • Thursday 16 December: Final night for 2021 (This will be an assessment night for Session 1 & “Fun” club comp for Session 2).    


Looking forward to 2022 the club will be going through some changes with updates to our training programs and the reintroduction of assessment nights and promotions for our Novice Handler (session 1) members. These changes are much needed and very exciting, and as a team we can’t wait to introduce you to them.

We are still finalising our return dates for 2022 as we want to ensure our army of Thursday night volunteers are supported and feel confident to help all our incredible members grow and achieve. However please note that it will be earlier than in previous years.  

Please remember that as we all emerge from lockdown at various stages, that any training and competition you partake in this year should be more about supporting our ADC community, helping us all return to some sort of normality and less about winning and being the best at all costs. “Running for them (our doggies) not us” as it were… The most important message going forward is to follow the guidelines, remember social distancing rules, practice good hygiene, stay home if you’re feeling unwell and most of all enjoy your dogs, training, trialing and just being a part of the sport we all love!
