Located in the city of Abbotsford in BC’s beautiful Fraser Valley, the Matsqui Flyball & Agility Club (MFAC) has been going strong since the early 1990’s. As a non-profit dog sport organization comprised of volunteers, our club was incorporated under the Societies Act of British Columbia on November 2, 1990.
We hosted our first Flyball tournament in May 1991. The first weekend of May has been known as “Matsqui’s Tourney” ever since. Our club joined the Agility Dog Association of Canada (ADAC), which was later replaced by the Agility Assocation of Canada (AAC). We hosted the second annual Agility Nationals for ADAC on September 8th and 9th, 1992. This was the first titling event held in Western Canada. There were entries from Northern BC, Calgary, Spokane, Seattle, and Texas. We continue to host an Agility trial the weekend after the September long weekend every year.
Throughout each year, we put on demonstrations of our sports at a variety of local events such as Mission’s Canada Day Celebrations and the Abbotsford Agrifair Horse and Hounds Show where we showcase our skills and answer questions people may have about our dogs or the sports we participate in. Take a look at our photo galleries for pictures from some of our events.
We currently offer Flyball & Agility lessons several times a year, if you are interested please see our Training page. You can let us know if you would like to try one or both sports by filling in & submitting our on-line form. We believe in teamwork and helping each other improve our handling skills in both sports.
Our club welcomes all dogs who have basic obedience skills (sit, stay, come, etc.), whether purebred or mixed breed (aka “All Canadian”) to help exercise both their bodies and minds, not to mention those of their handlers. We also accept Junior Handlers for lessons (which are children up to and including seventeen (17) years of age).
Spectators and volunteers are always welcome at all of our events.
