The Blockade Runners were founded in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1996 by Mike Randall. Mike was originally with the Front Runners Flyball team, which is based out of Michigan. Mike Randall wrote the first NAFA Rule Book in 1985, and was also the first NAFA Executive Director.
Being a team player is really important to the Blockade Runners Flyball Team! We have some rules:
- While participation in practice, demos to the public and tournaments is not mandatory, having fun is!
- No drama.
- Positive dog training is a requirement – have fun with your dog!
- Everyone has input into lineups and seed times for team, but once they are submitted, no whining!
Everyone is welcome to attend our practices! Regardless if you are new to the sport, or if you are already playing flyball with another team, everyone’s welcome. All dog breeds and mixes are also welcome. We do not charge for our practices. We have many years of experience, and can help you train your dog. We have chosen not to host classes that require payment as we simply enjoy the sport and don’t want to get into charging for training.
