Course Description

The New Normal: International Techniques for Local Courses :: Tracy Sklenar

“International” handling techniques have are so common on local courses that they are the ‘new normal’! We can use these techniques as part of our normal handling tool box to master courses every weekend – at the local, regional, national and international level!

Here is an exciting opportunity to learn how to execute 10 popular and useful international handling techniques - and where to use them on course! Each technique will be presented on one jump then built into sequences as the handler learns how, when and where to execute them. We will also review course maps and trials runs to learn how to best include these tools.
