The website will be a key component of the UDC. Every competitor will have an online profile where they can track their individual achievements. This is taking the concept of titling from Agility and the leveling up function of apps and games that reward players for meeting measurable and achievable goals.
The UDC is determined to get more people playing with dogs and/or playing with discs. We will start with mostly dog related competitions and add more games as our organization expands.
Our games are designed to develop handler skills. For example, the skills challenge will require competitors to make a variety of throws and do a variety of tricks. Distance games require longer throws with accuracy. These culminate in a stronger freestyle performance.
We believe that rewarding teams beyond the traditional top 3 will positively impact the growth of dog and disc sports by both encouraging new players to try the sport and by promoting a rewarding atmosphere that fosters lifetime players.
