This workshop is geared toward teams who are currently active in Rally, but the foundations taught in this class would be appropriate for novice teams with some experience. Instructor Dena Hudson will cover tips and tricks for training specific behaviors such as hind end awareness exercises, which help with the left turns/pivots/circles.
