Covid-19 Policy Update

Tuesday, March 15, 2022

Effective immediately, U-FLI has updated it's Covid-19 policy (see below).

The United Flyball League International (U-FLI) understands that the Covid-19 Pandemic/public health event is ongoing and that public health officials may be revising recommendations and restrictions at any time that may in turn, affect our policy and result in a change in our requirements or cancelation of an event.

We are committed to working with flyball clubs and local health officials to explore the possibility of providing safe events during this unprecedented time, although that may not be possible in all instances, and an event may not be able to proceed at any point of the process.

Should it be deemed safe to proceed by the CDC, State, and local Officials, U-FLI is willing to work with clubs to respond to the recommendations and regulations.  This includes, but is not limited to, ensuring that host clubs are complying with all local and state health regulations and following current best practices for reducing the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19. 

U-FLI also reserves the right to cancel sanctioning for a tournament should they deem it unsafe to proceed, the host club is unable to adhere to public health recommendations and regulations, or the protocol in this document is not explicitly followed.


  • For events in the U.S.A., U-FLI is following the CDC guidelines for large gatherings which bring together many people from multiple households in a private or public space, which includes the consideration of the "CDC COVID-19 Community Levels" of low, medium or high; that can be viewed by County by Clicking Here.

                CDC COVID-19 Community Levels

o   Low:  Wear a mask based on your personal preference, informed by your personal level of risk.

o   Medium:  If you are at risk for severe illness, talk to your healthcare provider about wearing masks indoors in public.  If you live with or will gather with someone at risk for severe illness, wear a mask when indoors with them.

o   High:  If you are 2 or older, wear a well-fitting mask indoors in public, regardless of vaccination status or individual risk (including in K-12 schools and other community settings).

  • For events held in Canada, U-FLI is following the "COVID-19 mask use: Advice for community settings" guidelines, published by the Government of Canada, which can be reviewed by Clicking Here.
    • The Tournament Director must verify with provincial government as to the local requirements at the time of the event.
  • For all events held in the U.S.A. and Canada:
    • The Tournament Director will work closely with the U-FLI Sanctioning Department to confirm the guidelines that will apply to each specific event.
    • The guidelines can change at any time. Should they change during an event the Tournament Director must confirm any changes that might affect the event with the U-FLI Sanctioning Department.
