Default can my dog do the A-frame if his growth plates arn't closed

I have a 1 year old GSD. He weighs 64 pounds. I don't think his growth plates are closed yet. I jump him 12 ( 2 inches smaller than height of elbow) I am currently doing the A-frame full hieght in classes and less steep at home. We do classes once a week. I am in junior handler intermidiate 3 class. I go with the small dogs so he doesn't jump high. Also he doesn't do the weave poles. Can I do the full height A-frame or should I wait until his growth plates are closed? As I said before class is only once week and at home the Aframe isn't as steep.
