Agility 1st, the high-performance training provider for agility instructors and coaches, has changed its partnership team with Mark and Karen Laker taking the helm and Steve Croxford departing.

Steve, who has been a partner since Agility 1st was founded, is leaving to focus on his important role as Vice-Chairman of the Kennel Club.

Mark said:
“Steve has been an integral part of Agility 1st from day one. We are continuing to grow and it’s important for us and the agility community that Steve can commit to his role at the Kennel Club fully while we will continue to create an environment that supports the development of the very best agility instructors and coaches. We wish Steve all the very best in his developing role at the Kennel Club who will benefit from his knowledge and expertise.”

Commenting on his departure Steve said:
“I am proud of what Mark and I have achieved with Agility 1st and I look forward to seeing them continue to make a positive contribution to the development of instructing and coaching of Agility in the UK.
