The United Flyball League International, Inc. (U-FLI)Sanctioning Organization: The United Flyball League International, Inc. (U-FLI)Please Note: 30" Jumps Will Be in Use at This Tournament

Starting June 1, 2022 all U-FLI sanctioned events will be switching to 30" wide jumps. With better training, improved equipment and thoughtful breeding, dogs of all shapes and sizes are speeding up and we feel that this change is a positive one for the safety and best interest of the dogs competing in the sport. This will allow dogs to be more confident with passing, encourage more jump commitment, and less risk of injury should 2 dogs end up in the jumps in a heat. The change would also put the jumps back in line with the regulated max width of a box (30") in U-FLI.

COVID Protocol

The following protocol will be in effect at this event:

Each person will be required to show a vaccine card to receive a wristband issued by the Host Club to wear for the weekend. Those who do not have a vaccination card, will need to take extra precautions. Masks are required at all times while in the event venue building of any U-FLI sanctioned event (judges and scorekeepers are exempt). U-FLI is monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations closely. Due to the nature of viruses, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the associated new variants; our policy may change at any time. If an event is in an area of an outbreak, a last-minute decision might be made to follow the original COVID policies even if all attending have been vaccinated.

(*Waiver is located within the online tournament registration form and must be accepted to register for this event.)
