ChantalB Posted December 30, 2012 Report Share Posted December 30, 2012 As the sport is changing, things are getting harder, our BCs are generally fast and I'm starting to add lots of verbals to our box of tricks. Europe is getting ever fancier meaning it will trickle down to us eventually. I'm still relatively new to agility though, and I'm trying to figure out what I'll need eventually. So what kind of verbals do you have/are training/want and what do you think is needed at the higher levels (challenge classes, national/regional level and internationally). Yeah yeah, some people can make where they need to be, handling, lalala, but this is a verbal discussion :)/>/>/>/> Just figuring out new ideas to train. Right now we are working on... Far - backside if the jump. Check - wrap left Dig - wrap right Woah- don't take that obstacle, look at me for further direction... gamblers thing Yes, go- yup that's the one, usually heard after a woah in gamblers Switch - verbal flick, contact to tunnel, although it could come in handy at other situations I haven't thought of yet... ideas? (I could see it of use in gamblers) Left and right - haven't started training these two yet as I really don't know my criteria, what I'll use it for... how do you define left and right? Is it a general hey we are going left, or is it a hard left turn... check and dig are wraps, you turn in the air, but left and right Im lost on the exactness of it.. Go - go forward, stay on that line till I tell you otherwise, no matter how far away I am. Out - going around an object With me - ignoring those close jumps, wacky long lines, discriminations. Snooker type of thing. Stay running with me till I cue an obstacle. Target - 2o2o the contact Gogogogogo - boot it fast And his start line stay, his release, his obstacle names (which I don't use unless I have to) How about you guys?
