In addition to our regular class session starting on May16th, we will also be hosting our first annual Treibball Play Day event on August 15th. This is the first treibball event of this kind in Virginia, with something for all levels! If you have been training on your own or taken classes anywhere else, here is your chance to meet other treibball enthisiasts and play some of the organized games. OR maybe you are new to the sport and want to get started-well here is your chance to do that too!
There will be a beginner workshop in the morning from 9:00-12:00, with intermediate to advanced activities in the afternoon from 1:00-5:30. The afternoon will include NATE and Wag IT Dog Ball games with other training challenges and troubleshooting. You can check out the links here for rules, and start practicing! Beginners from the morning workshop will be encouraged to stay and spend some more time learning about treibball by observing the afternoon activities and visiting with others.
Instructor and organizer for this event is NATE charter member and trainer, Char Turner, see bio here.
This will be held in the air conditioned building at Love on a Leash in Harrisonburg VA. Registration details are coming soon, but in the mean time if you have other questions please email Char: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope you can join us for a fun time of all things Treibball, learning and playing with our dogs!
The next 6 week session of classes will begin in Feb. 2015, meeting twice a month on Saturdays at Love on a Leash in Harrisonburg, VA, indoors and heated.
Dates (all Saturdays) are: 2/14, 2/28, 3/14, 3/28, 4/11, 4/25. There will be one make up class offered if anyone has a conflict with some of these dates.
Cost for each 6 week session is $90.00 for non-members, $75.00 for LOAL members. One make up class is allowed for a missed absence. After successful completion of 2 six week sessions you may elect to attend on a drop-in basis, pay per class.
Time: 10:00-11:00 AM.
Prerequisites: Completion of 6 weeks of advanced basic obedience or OR CGC OR equivalent. Recall, stay, sit and down are necessary. Most work is off leash but a long line is acceptable as long as you have control around other dogs and people. I allow plenty of space and will also put up ring gate barriers when needed.
Trials and Titling: Live trials are few and far between at the moment, but Treibball is alive and well worldwide via video and the Internet. While titling is certainly not required to enjoy this sport, there are a couple of video titling options at this time for those who wish to pursue it. Titling by video is now available through Wag-It Games Dog Ball , World Treibball League, and later in 2015 by NATE , National Association of Treibball Enthusiasts – each with their own unique version of the sport, but the fundamentals are the same. I will be happy to facilitate video titling events for anyone in the class that has interest, and we can prepare for these options in class. Group events will be made available.
