Important Update to Phase 1 Transitional Flyball Requirements

Steve Corona

The NAFA Executive Committee held a meeting on Monday, February 22, 2021. The purpose of this call was in response to questions from many hosts and competitors about how to interpret various local and state/provincial rules regarding the recently published requirements concerning the wearing of face masks.
As a result of this meeting, the Executive Committee voted unanimously to require that face masks be worn at all NAFA sanctioned events until further notice.
Consistent with NAFA’s management of suspending tournaments for the past year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NAFA wishes to provide their host clubs, judges, and competitors with a single face mask policy across all regions as we return to playing flyball. In addition, this aligns with other dog sport organizations requiring that face masks be worn while participating in their events.
This requirement supersedes previous guidance and is in effect for all current and future sanctioned tournaments until further notice. All other requirements and recommendations for Phase 1 (Transitional Flyball) remain in effect.
Any questions or concerns should be directed to flyball@...
Further details on the mask mandate can be found in the updated requirements and recommendations document on
Thank you,
Steve Corona
NAFA Chairman of the Board
