Advanced Class: Run This Course, Really! - 15-Jun-2011

The week I set up the Northeastern regional IHC jumpers course USDAA NE Regionals IHC Jumpers - VideoUSDAA NE Regionals IHC Jumpers - Video in my backyard I decided to base my class course on the middle of the IHC course. If you look at the course below you’ll see obstacles 7-13 are ripped off from David Bozak’s IHC course. I changed the arrangement of jumps after the tunnel to fit the space and to make the tunnel more of an off course after 14.

This course lets teams work on: 270s 270 Degree Jump SequenceBack Side Entry to 270/Training Opportunity - VideoHandling 270 Degree Jump Sequences, a Back Side Jump Back Side/Back Side JumpHandling the Quad Back Side - Patrick Bucher Course/VideoThe Connection Between Threadles and Back SidesBack Side of Jump Handling Combinations - Video, Jump Wraps Jump Wrap/WrapHandling 360 Jump Wraps aka "Over and Over" - VideoJump Wrap Handling TipsJump Wrap Handling - With Video, a 90 degree On Side Weave Entry, some good off course challenges, and ends on multiple Threadles Threadle SequenceMary Ellen Barry on Threadle HandlingThe Connection Between Threadles and Back SidesTraditional Threadle HandlingSingle Sided Threadle Handling.

If you are short on space just set up the bottom half of the course and run 8-15.

Course Setup

I had my Intermediate class run 1-16 using multiple handling methods for jumps 1-2-3 and 13-14-15. My Advanced group ran the whole course and did their usual bang-up-job on it and once again made me proud!

Here are some handling thoughts:

This course was a lot of fun to run, I hope you try it out and tell me your experiences!
