ASFA Explained
The American Sighthound Field Association was founded in 1972. Since then the ASFA has been promoting the sport of lure coursing throughout the US. We are proud to be the first nationally known association for lure coursing. In the sport of lure coursing we do not chase live game, we use a plastic bag on a string powered by motors. The hounds love to “hunt” the plastic bag. You need only to see the speed, enthusiasm, ability, follow and endurance expressed by these wonderful sleek hounds to become hooked on the sport of lure coursing. ASFA sponsored lure coursing trials are held on most weekends throughout the year, usually in multiple locations arounds the country. You can find clubs in your area by clicking on your state on the map on this page. A schedule of events can be found by clicking on the “Field Trials” button above. ASFA field trials can offer you, your family and your sighthound a day of great fun. Try ASFA. You can be assured you will not regret learning more about lure coursing. Thank you for exploring our organization and web site.

Notice of ASFA Records Program Revision $15 Surcharge per Trial

ASFA has been dealing with an outdated records program for a number of years. We have had numerous patches done, but it has reached the point of obsolescence. The 2015 Annual Convention of Delegates passed a motion to implement a surcharge of $15.00 per trial to help fund a total revision. The surcharge was to go into effect at the time we entered a contract for the revision which was done in April 2017.

The surcharge will go into effect for all trials on or after July 1, 2017. The ASFA Treasurer will keep separate track of the surcharge to match against the costs of the revision.

We appreciate the support of the clubs in helping ASFA make this long-needed revision.
