While we’re in the season of international competitions, here’s a blog from Summer Clark who has just competed at the Junior European Open in Switzerland in her last competition as a junior handler.
The past three years as a member of YKC Agility Team GB have been truly unforgettable.
They have seen me travel to Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland to compete for my country; something that I only ever dreamed of achieving. During my time as a member of the team, Ethel and I have grown as a partnership and vastly improved our skills on the agility field. In addition, my technical understanding of agility has improved and my confidence has blossomed, setting me up for a successful future in the world of the sport.
On top of the agility, I have made a countless amount of incredible friends that I know will last a lifetime. Being a member of the junior team has given me valuable experience that I will use as I progress onto the senior squad and continue on my lifelong agility journey. As much as I will miss it now that I have aged out, I am excited to move forward and use what it has taught me to become the best senior handler that I can be.
Thank you YKC Agility Team GB
Summer will join the 2020 adult squad to continue her journey with Agility Team GB along with Sarah, Adam and Hannah.
