On The Fly was established in 2007 by Morgan Jarvis, owner of K9 Central Inc.. Morgan has been involved in flyball since 1987, and has travelled the world teaching and organizing flyball competitions. This included a trip to Japan in 2005, by invitation to organize a flyball tournament and present flyball seminars.
Many of the team members on On The Fly were former flyball students at the facility in Bowmanville. These team members now help to teach the flyball classes. Not only is On The Fly is one of Ontario’s fastest flyball teams, many of the dogs on the team have been trained and titled to their ONYX and Grand Champion Awards.
On The Fly uses only positive motivational training. We are a team that values family, friends and a sense of community. Flyball is great dog sport for active, high energy dogs. It’s a great way to get that extra energy out and work as a partner with your dog in a team environment.

“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!
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.
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.

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.
