IF Race Program


We are very excited to announce that IF has partnered with SpeedFancier to provide a race program to all IF Member clubs.


We will be allowing a limited number of clubs to test the program before it is generally available to all members.  If you or your club is interested, please contact:


For the most up-to-date information, you can visit our dedicated update and status page

The page will be updated as the project moves along and additional functionality

is added.


Any club that has lost access to WinSpeed1

and are without a race program to use can request immediate access to the new program and request

free training from the developer.



1 The original WinSpeed© was a PC software program offered by the American Racing Pigeon Union, Inc.

In response to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Board of the I.F. is encouraging all clubs to adhere to your  state’s guidelines for social distancing and crowd size.  As pigeon fanciers we are aware of how quickly a virus can spread through a flock and the damage it can do. We are not the youngest group of sportsmen and many of use suffer from respiratory issues.


Under the I.F. policy of Home Rule, we cannot mandate that you do not gather and ship races. We do encourage you to follow your state’s guidelines and be safe.

Attention ALL IF Members:

For your information, we are renumbering the IF membership this year.  Due to the time needed to do this and how late in the year it is, there may not be a membership card issued for the 2021 year.
