WCRL Flash - New for 2022

New Classes and Titles being introduced in 2022 to promote fluid movement.

Introducing WCRL FLASH.  It is a class with emphasis on movement together through the course.  The hallmark of FLASH class is there are no sits or downs, leading to flowing courses with minimal pauses. Courses consist of moving exercises categorized as “turn”, “cone”, and “heeling” exercises. As a result, exercises involving sits and/or downs are not allowed. Some new moving exercises are also being introduced. See separate news article coming soon on 

The FLASH class will initially launch with courses on the USDAA@Home! platform with the first Level 1 and 2 events starting on Tuesday, 1/25/2022. This will enable us to observe results of this new class and to make refinements based upon competitor feedback. Be the first to earn the WCRL Flash title by participating in this initial offering, as courses offer qualifications towards titles and points towards annual ranking. A Level 3 class is under consideration. FLASH will be available for live events once regulations are finalized later this year.
