NAFA is extending the comment period for the originally proposed "Jump Heights" rule change until August 1st, 2018.

Please send all comments both for and against this proposal to: jumpheightchangefeedback@flyball.org

Be There! The CanAm Classic! "The Board of Directors has received a number of emails requesting that jump heights be lowered from the current 5" below the withers measurement, to 6" below the withers.

Related to this, would be lowering the minimum and maximum jump heights from 7"-14" to 6"-13" respectively.

There are a number of considerations on this topic, chief among them is dog safety. There is a concern that higher jumps could present a safety issue, while conversely lowering them could also present a different issue with increased speed into the box."
