We focused on training up new dogs this year and it has finally started to pay off. Many new dogs debut at the Surf City tournament this past July. We are excited to see them become regulars in the racing lanes next year. This is a huge accomplishment for us as many of our dogs came already trained from other flyball teams. We finally have a group of dogs that we worked on together that are going to be a big part of our team in 2020.
Puppies, puppies and more puppies. Our members decided they loved training so much this year that a group of them all decided to get some puppies. It looks like training will be another goal for us in 2020. The racing year does not officially end until the end of September, however our team has already secured the following awards this year.
2019 Region 6 Regular Champions
2019 Region 6 Multi-breed Champions
2019 Regional Overall Club Champions
On Sunday, September 3, 2019, the North American Flyball Association, (NAFA) announced, that Crazy Train Flyball team was officially invited to the FCI2020 flyball tournament in Lommel, Belgium to represent the United States. We will be one of 5 teams representing the US. To read more about this, check out our blog post.
One of the things we have come to realize that makes our team great is that we have a large team and a lot of depth at each position. When we first started Crazy Train we knew we wanted to be competitive and we wanted to try to get the best out of each person and dog. But as we have grown we have realized that it is so much more than that. We support each other to do well. We work together to help each other exceed. We pull our dog to put the dog in we know will win the race and both dogs are celebrated. No we aren’t perfect but we try our best each day we come together to be and that is really all we can ask for.
Goals for 2020:
- Train, Train, Train…
- Continue to come together to support everyone.
- Attend U-Fli Champs in 2020
