NAFA Mask Mandate

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

See further details of the Mask Mandate in Section 3 of NAFA's Requirements/Recommendations for Host Clubs for Phase 1 (Transitional Flyball) Version 2.

NAFA thanks Regional Directors, Tournament Directors, and Judges, who will be using the following guidelines to help keep NAFA's events as safe as possible: NAFA's Mask Mandate Enforcement Guidelines for Regional Directors, Tournament Directors, and Judges.

Thank you,
Steve Corona
NAFA Chairman of the Board

The minutes for the December 19, 2020, BOD meeting have been posted.

Roll-out of new NAFA Measuring System

At the January 15th, 2021 meeting, the board ratified detailed plans for roll-out of the new Measuring System. The new system is based on recommendations from the Special Measuring Committee (SMC), with input from RDs, judges, and prior feedback from competitors.

    Goals of New Measuring System
  1. Make measuring easier for competitors, RDs, and judges.
  2. Make measuring consistent.
  3. Ensure fair checks and balances in the overall process.
    Overview of New Measuring System
  1. A brief video introduction of the new measuring device (NAFA specialized ruler + laser level)*
  2. :
    *Measuring of dog is for equipment demonstration purposes only.
  3. Pictures of the components of new measuring device

  4. Overview of New Measuring System

  5. Timeline for roll-out (3 phases).

  6. FAQ

The full detailed ratified plans will be published for competitors before April 1, 2021. NAFA will then gather further questions from competitors at and publish an updated FAQ document.

The waiver for the Iron Dog title requirements for FY2020 has been applied in the NAFA database. Please go here for further details.

IRON DOG: The board has decided to waive the 'point earned' requirement in FY2020 (October 1, 2019 - September 30, 2020) for the Iron Dog award. Dogs eligible to run in FY 2020 will be given credit for fulfilling the one point earned requirement in FY2020.

We have an unprecedented situation this year with many tournaments being cancelled. As a result, there are many clubs that have not and will not have the opportunity to participate in enough tournaments to meet the minimum requirements for the overall NAFA Awards. The board felt that parity was important when it came to these awards and therefore has come to the difficult decision that there will be no NAFA Champion, Regional Champion or Regional Overall Club Champion awards in FY2020. We will still go forward with awards for Regional MVP, Judge of the Year and Clyde Memorial Hall of Fame.
