Flygility is a dog sport that mixes elements of agility and flyball.
As in flyball, the dog is sent to fetch a ball from a flyball machine and returns the ball to the handler. Courses can be longer than in flyball, 30m from start line to the box, and uses agility obstacles.
Flygility is heaps of fun and as the equipment is low, trained dogs can compete from 12 months of age.
In NZ, the sport is administerted by New Zealand Flygility Dog Association. As well as the NZFDA the National Agility Link Association publishes monthly courses for it's members to run.
You don’t have to be a member of the NZ Flygility association to compete. However you do need to be a member if you want your points (wins) to count towards the Flygility qualifications.
It is cheap and easy to join and anyone who wants to have fun with a ball-loving dog that is under control is welcome.
Go to www.flygility.org.nz for all the information you need. This has membership forms, calendar of events and the regulations which are all easy to read and understand.
Warning: Flygility is an addictive sport.

If the weather is wet the flygility will be postponed to a later date. (It will still be held if the rain is light or a drizzle). If you are doubtful as to whether the Flygility will be run, then you should contact the club to check.
