Tracking Practice Generally, informal practices for members are held in the cooler months of autumn, winter, and early spring on the weekends. We usually meet in the historic Yorktown Battlefields, although it is not uncommon for members to meet up and track in varying locations for different experiences. We are very fortunate to have a wealth of expertise within our club, and experienced members are always willing to help people who are just beginning the sport. Be prepared for any and all kinds of weather - as the long as it is safely possible to enter the field, dogs are able to track - and we do! Practices typically last around 3 hours (sometimes longer, especially with more advanced dogs), and is usually followed by group members heading to a local restaurant for lunch and camaraderie. Practice is free for members, however, it will be necessary to purchase a Yorktown Battlefield membership card. Parking permits are provided as part of TTCVA membership.
