Field Prep - see diagram for small and large fields on handbook page 10

Set up a goal area

  • Size is 15 feet wide by 5 feet deep set against the back boundary.

  • Use at least 3 foot high sturdy material on 3 sides: back, right and left sides (exercise pen, lattice).


  • Mark the goal line with tape, chalk, rope, etc.


  • Sides of the goal must be stable with dog able to play ball off the outside without them moving or being held by the handler.


Mark handler area

  • Size is 25 feet wide by 5 feet deep directly in front of goal area.


  • Mark the line with tape, chalk, rope, cones in the corner, etc.
Set up outside edge of field
  • Use cones or snow fencing to mark sides and back of field area.
  • A & B divisions Pre-Novice and Novice; Veteran division all levels field may be 35 feet wide by 50 feet long or 50 feet wide by 75 feet long.
  • A & B divisions Intermediate, Advanced and Masters field must be 50 feet wide by 75 feet long.
Mark field distances from the goal line (Recommended)
  • Mark the point ball distance with a larger more distinguishable cone/sign
  • Mark every five feet with a smaller cone/sign. This will help with depth perception for the judge. If you skip this and are playing Balls N Order, check that you have marked the minimum ball roll back distance.
Set up video camera
  • Use a tripod or hold camera very steady.
  • Set up on one side as far back as necessary to see the goal, entire handler area, and ball formation.
  • On Intermediate and above pan as necessary at the start of the run to show marking of point ball distance line and entry into field. (Recommended)
  • Don’t shoot into the sun.

Field Overview Video
  • Stand in the middle of the field and pan slowly around the field pausing at the goal area.
  • The video can be sent in separately or combined with runs.
  • Field Overview videos can be used for all dogs and handlers from a particular training field with no time limit as long as the fencing and goal/handler box markings do not change.
Shoot your field overview video and sample runs. Email the links to csv@nationaltreibball.com if you have any questions or want to make sure your setup will work.
