To get an invite to 2023 Regionals:
- Place in the top 3 of any division (open and lap) in any discipline (Distance, Air Retrieve and/or Hydrodash) at a 2023 Qualifier event. (Invites roll down) They do not determine the division you compete in at Regionals
- Top veteran in each open division (of distance only) also earns an invite (does not roll down if Vet is in the top 3)
- Place in the top 3 at a 2022 Regionals
- Earn an advanced or excellent title during the 202 season (9/16/22 thru 9/15/23)
Division placement for the 2023 Regionals will be determined by: The dog’s season average on the closing date of the Regionals they attend (the Tuesday prior to the start date of a Regionals at 11:59 CST).
Season average =
in Distance (average of 15 best jumps),
in Air Retrieve - (average of 5 best AR scores),
in HydroDash - (average of 5 best HD scores)
In order to accept an invitation you must also have completed the minimum required splashes.
The minimum required splashes for the 2023 season are:

Once an invite is earned you can go to any regional and attend multiple regionals but a dog can only place 1st-3rd in a discipline (AR/HD/Distance) at one regional. If you place at another regional that placement and invite will roll down.
