Zoom! Flyball – Region 2 (Hamilton, Ontario)

A few members of our club – just hanging out at a tournament in Nova Scotia a few years back!

2018 Regular Division 10 NAFA CanAm Champs – www.zoomflyball.com

“Zoom!” is a flyball club focused on team spirit, encouragement and fun (and maybe a slight preoccupation with food)! We are proud of the diversity of our team, our dogs and the fun we have playing flyball together. Our crew is made up of Shelties, Border Collies, Mini-Bull Terrier, Cane Corso, Whippets, Rat Terriers, Parson Russell, Boston Terriers, German Short-Haired Pointer, Labrador Retrievers, Australian Shepherds, Mixed Breeds, Berger de Pyrenees and we even had an English Bulldog on the team. So yes, any dog can play Flyball!

It really does take a village to train a Flyball dog and we try to embody that in our team philosophy. Every dog learns at their own speed, with their own challenges to overcome. But typically you can expect it to take about a year to get a new dog ready to race.

Trying to break into a new dog sport with your dog can be challenging – but there are few ways to get introduced to the world of Flyball. We would be happy to talk to anyone interested in trying this sport and provide you with a few options for getting started.

Just visit our website and click the email link at the very bottom of the page to connect. Let us know a bit about yourself and your dog and we can go from there.

A super competitive club that loves to have fun!

The dogs on our club range in speed from under 3.4 seconds (to run 50 feet over four hurdles, catch the ball off the spring loaded box, and return over the jumps to the finish line!) to over 5.0 seconds. We strive for each dog to realize their full potential and celebrate each goal reached – be it a personal-best time, a NAFA points goal, a Regional, NAFA or CanAm Championship (the annual championship event held in Indianapolis, IN).

SPRINGLOADED is both an American and Canadian Club that loves to be competitive and have fun. We generally host two NAFA tournaments per year and we love to have fun themes, and have people and dogs dress up in costumes and have a blast! Past themes have included Celebrate Canada, Flower Power, and Superheroes!

Although we are not recruiting new members at this time (we are at a size where we quite often run six teams of dogs at a tournament!) our Team Captain, Kelly Price, can offer introductory lessons and/or connect you with other clubs in Region 2 who are looking for new members.
