| 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.
