- 2021 top 3 Regionals Placements per division
- 2020 top 3 Regionals Placements per division
* top 25% of each division is determined by a team's best regionals score averaged with their end of season average. (this puts a lot of weight on regionals effort)

ALL invites must have a minimum of 15/5/5 splashes to accept their National Showcase invite.
There will be 2 splashes (2 jumps per splash) and a Finals. Each splash
is 3 mins. Combine the best of each splash with the end of season average to get an overall score.
FINALS - Top 5 -10 dogs depending on division size will be called back for a finals. Finals will be 1 jump (2 mins). Finals jump will be averaged and top 5 placements will be rewarded. Top ten placements will include the final jump in their average.
Each team comes up once for a standard HD splash. Top 5-10 (depending on division numbers) will come back for finals.
