    Congratulations NATE Teams!

    Congratulations go out to Carolyn and Bodhi in North Carolina for achieving their Master level title in the Balls N Order game. Watch Bodhi’s confidence as he waits for push or stop and redirect cues. This run is also filmed in a pop-up field and you will be astounded to see him push all 9 balls straight into the goal. Wow!

    Let’s celebrate Mary and Dill from Indiana! They earned both Novice and Intermediate titles in the Balls N Order game. Watch fast and accurate steering and excellent directionals as they bring in all 6 balls. Dill even retrieves ball six from the back fence with no hesitation. What teamwork!

    Hooray for Irma and Titan from Texas for achieving their Advanced title in the Standard Game! Watch Titan, a veteran, leap over the point ball in his excitement! Then he works steadily to bring in the rest of the balls. Nice work you two!

    Three cheers for Monica and Jojo from California who have earned their Intermediate Balls N Order title! Watch their first run in which they adeptly stop and redirect to another ball three different times to bring them to the goal in order. A run to be proud of!

    These Teams are having a ball!

    Let’s celebrate Yuki and her handlers Steve and Janice from California! They have achieved their Novice title in the Balls N Order game. Watch patience and training pay off as Steve works with Yuki to get the correct order. Nice job!

    Hooray for Sandy and Ally from Indiana on achieving their Advanced title in the Standard game. Ally is consistent and steady as she brings in 8 balls with dainty precision. It is a pleasure to watch their beautiful team work.

    Three cheers for Eric and Jet from Washington! They just earned their Intermediate title in the Standard game. Watch some beautiful, clean, fast runs from this team. Jet follows a high-flying point ball and performs some good corner digs. What enthusiasm! Nice work!

    For the first time NATE sponsored a booth at the APDT conference this year, which was held in Portland, Oregon, Oct. 30 to Nov. 2.

    NATE Trainer, and newest Board Member, Eric Sanford, volunteered his time not only to man the booth and educate other trainers about the sport, but performed a Treibball demonstration with his trusty side kick Jet-Fly I.  

    Eric found that NATE's presence at the conference was a big success and attending trainers were excited to see Treibball being represented there.

    NATE’s main Mission Statement is …“to promote worldwide participation of the sport of Treibball and educate the public about training and competition for the sport.”

    If any other members or trainers would like more information on how they can help promote NATE and Treibball, please contact

     A Special Thanks to Eric, Jet and his crew of volunteers , as well as the entire NATE Board for volunteering their time to make this event come together and a huge success!

    The Skill Certification Program is an excellent way for NATE members to assess their progress as they train for the Standard and Balls N Order titling games. We have revised the program to align with the 2019 Rules Handbook, clarify the directions, and simplify the process for handlers and evaluators.

    Our website has been updated and expanded to cover all the changes including video samples of each level and skill. Check it out!…

    For those already using the program we have a one-page Summary of Changes you can access from the Skill Certification Program page. These changes will not impact Skill Certifications already earned. If you are in the middle of the program, you will be able to continue from your current position. There is no need to repeat any level.

    Members: Save the date for a Clubhouse Chat 4 pm PST / 7 pm EST Wednesday, October 23rd where we will review the improvements and help you integrate skills tests into your training.
