Our History In Video

Or, Go Hawks!


We were lucky for many years to be able to do half-time flyball demos at the University of Iowa Men's and Women's Hawkeye basketball games -- what an adrenaline rush! The audiences loved us. And, many times, we managed to get a bit of video from one source or another. Here are the short clips we've accumulated. It's especially poignant for us to watch these now and see dogs who are no longer with us ...

Practice Info

Where You'll Find Us


We practice at Steve Branin and Jayne McQuillen's training facility west of Iowa City at 8:30 a.m. on most Sundays, and at 7:00 p.m. on most Wednesdays.


(The facility is available to rent. Contact Steve or Jayne for information.)


New Skidz members are by invitation only and must have a current member sponsor. However, if you are interested in flyball, please contact us to find out when you can observe a practice, for information on flyball classes or to find out about attending local flyball tournaments.

Team Skidmarkz

Where We've Been,

What We've Done


SKIDMARKZ (founded - April 2002)

Skidmarkz' racing mantra: wear ear plugs, relax, enjoy your teammates, and kick some tail on the mats! The Skidmarkz Club is very proud of our dogs; we currently race with 8 different breeds, including a whole bunch of mixes, and many are rescues or rehomed dogs. We love breaking team records, but we pride ourselves on running competitively with all of our lineups, always finding a place for the slower dogs, and enjoy nothing better than races won or lost by a whisker in any division!
