Event Notes

Junior Handlers may compete in both the Junior Handler event specific to their regional and in a regular regional splash for Distance Jumping. There is no option for Junior Handler invites for HD or AR only DJ. 


Only the Junior Handler Regional events will count towards a juniors invite to the Junior Handler National Championship. Juniors must be handler of handler of merit for the Junior handler event. If they also compete in the regular Regional event they will be competing with the adults for a spot in the National Championship.  



Junior Handlers must register in advance. There will be no day of registration accepted. Please be sure to be aware of which event you are registering for.


  1. If they register for the Junior Handler Regional Event, this means the handler will earn a qualifying spot towards the Junior Handler National Championship.


  1. If the Junior Handler registers for the regular distance jumping, they will be placed and potentially earn a qualifying spot towards the National Championship to compete in the regular DJ event.


Jr. Handlers can enter both the JR. Handler event AND the regular regionals event.


Registration for the Junior Handler Regional Event is specific to each regional. If you are not sure where to register or find this information, please check with the mobile dock that is running each event.


Check In

Junior handlers should check in with admin and let them know that they are the handler of merit for either the Junior Handler event or the Regional DJ event. It is important to verify this information to be sure that admin has the proper info to send National Championship invites to the junior handlers.


Competition and Scoring

The run order (for the Junior Handler event) will be posted on the Wednesday before the regional event. Junior Handlers (for the Junior Handler event) will jump during the break between the two regular Regional splashes that day. 


Junior handlers can have an additional handler on the dock, but they must be the handler of merit (throwing the toy). Junior Handlers follow the same rules as Dock Jumping.


Placement and Ribbons

For the Junior Handler Regional event, there are no placements. Each junior competing in the Junior Handler Regional event will receive a qualifier ribbon for their jump.


If Junior Handlers participate in the Regular Regional Event, they will be placed along with all other distance jump competitors for placements.


Qualifying for National Championship

In order to qualify for the Junior Handler National Championship, junior handlers MUST participate in the Junior Handler Regional event. All juniors who compete in the JH regional event will earn an invite towards the National Championship in Springfield, MO.
