NAFA is extending the comment period for the originally proposed "Jump Heights" rule change until August 1st, 2018.

"The Board of Directors has received a number of emails requesting that jump heights be lowered from the current 5" below the withers measurement, to 6" below the withers.

Related to this, would be lowering the minimum and maximum jump heights from 7"-14" to 6"-13" respectively.

There are a number of considerations on this topic, chief among them is dog safety. There is a concern that higher jumps could present a safety issue, while conversely lowering them could also present a different issue with increased speed into the box."

Please send all comments both for and against this proposal to: jumpheightchangefeedback@flyball.org

Be There! The CanAm Classic! NAFA 2017/2018 Election ballots should have been delivered to your email inbox if you are a Club Owner, Regional Director, Approved/Supervising Judge or Board Member.

If you have not received the ballot email, of if you have any questions about the election, please contact elections@flyball.org.

Polls open December 1st, 2017 and close Wednesday January 22nd, 2018 at midnight CST. Results will be announced at the NAFA AGM on January 27th, 2018.
