Live Competition Sanctioned Rules

The Board of Directors of the American Treibball Association has approved the following Sanctioned Trial and Competition Rules for use within the United States and Canada, for 2017-2019. This enhanced game structure and specific scoring system is the most complete to date, and is the result of months of dedicated work by the 2014-2015 Competition committees. Our thanks go out to them for their had work and professional attention to moving ATA Treibball forward. We encourage you to join, learn and play Treibball with us.

All ATA members and registered dogs can compete in trials, per these guidelines.
