Welcome to 2018

 

Enrollments are now open for Term 1 classes. Term 1 will begin Tuesday 30th January and Finish Tuesday 27th March.

Many of your instructors are headed to the National Agility Championships in Melbourne as a result of this we have to adjust term 1 dates.

Notification of Fee Increase

ACWA has not previously increased the cost of lessons. Unfortunately due to increased costs of lighting, insurance and equipment maintenance we need to raise costs. As of Term 1 2018 the cost per term is $80 for all adult dog classes and $40 for puppy classes. Refunds will not be given for cancelled or missed classes.

Payment of Fees

Please be advised that once you have submitted your enrolment form online you will be asked to pay for your class. We will not be sending individual invoices or using Bpay. Unless you here from us, assume you are enrolled. Please pay via bank transfer.

You will be required to show your instructor proof of payment at first lesson.

All class lists will be posted on our Website and FB page prior to the commencement of lesson 1.

If you are unsure of which class to enrol in please contact us.

 

SENIORS TRAINING

 

Please be advised that as of 2018 you are required to submit an enrolment form for Seniors Training Sessions. Regardless of whether you plan on training every week or occasionally there is a cost of $50 per term to participate in seniors training. Proof of payment will need to be given to David Williams (treasurer). If you are an instructor or committee member you are exempt from paying this fee.

 

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to a great Term 1.

ACWA Committee

ACWA Training commences Tuesday 24th October

Great News! Training will start this Tuesday the 24th. The Doberman Club have kindly offered to move their obedience training to the lower arena, and I am most grateful to Des Kehoe for this gesture. We will be on the upper oval. This is a new situation for us to hold training on the top oval. I will post a map tomorrow of where each class will be together with final class lists. See you all Tuesday.

ACWA Term 4 Training

Hi everyone, as you know we are experiencing some difficult times with the state of our training grounds. The committee met Saturday night and we have regretfully decided to cancel training again this week.

 

The safety of all dogs is our primary concern. For new members and those who don’t know, one of our member’s dogs broke its leg in several places after running on the grounds several weeks ago. The dog and owner are recovering, but as you can imagine this was a traumatic event for both and a reminder to the the wider dog sports community that we must always strive to ensure safety to all who use these grounds. The grounds had been cored prior to this event leaving large holes and an uneven surface. There is no quick fix to repairing the grounds.

 

Committee members are meeting with Dogs West tomorrow to come up to a solution to address our training requirements. Our hope is to get all classes up and running next week using different ovals and training spaces. We ask your your understanding at this time. This is an unprecedented situation and we are a new committee working very hard to ensure we can provide you with a safe place to train your dogs with our team of wonderful and dedicated instructors. I would like to extend a huge thanks to the ACWA committee, Angela Treanor, Clive Bruce-Smith and all those working behind the scenes.
