We are so glad to be back to dock diving and can’t wait to see all of your smiling faces again! We would like to share with you our plan for keeping you and our staff healthy and safe during the Covid-19 Pandemic.  If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Health Concerns

If you are sick or not feeling quite right, or have been exposed to someone who is sick or not feeling quite right, please DO NOT COME! If you are immune-compromised or are at a greater risk of complications from Covid-19, please consider not coming. If you are at all uncomfortable with people gathering, please consider not coming.

We will be adhering to social distancing practices and will be rigorously sanitizing, however this is a respiratory virus primarily spread through respiratory droplets, and we cannot keep people from breathing.

Masks or face coverings are suggested but not required.  We will have several sanitizing stations available for your use, but we encourage all competitors to bring their own hand sanitizer and/or wipes.

Parking and crating

We will be directing traffic to designated parking areas.  Please respect social distancing practices when choosing a spot to set up your crates/canopies.

When you arrive

Please plan on arriving at least 45 minutes before your first scheduled splash.  Sign in at the admin tent may take a bit longer due to extra precautions taken.  After parking and setting up your crate/canopy, please make your way to the Admin tent to sign in.  Payment will be taken by a staff member using hand sanitizer before  each transaction.  We will accept cash, check, credit card and contactless PayPal payments.  Only one competitor at a time will be allowed at the admin desk to sign in.  Please follow the 6’ social distancing markers while waiting to sign in.


To minimize contact, please print off, sign and bring with you 1) The standard NADD waiver 2) the New NADD Covid-19 Waiver and 3) the Pier Pups waiver.  We will issue you a wristband that will allow you on the dock once we have received all three waivers.  Also, any additional handlers must also complete these waivers and have a wristband to enter the dock area.

Event Structure

We will be running the event as a regular closed splash event with set splash times.   There will be only 3 teams in the staging area at a time:  the team on the dock, one on deck, and one in the hole.  There will be tents set up for teams on deck and in the hole.  We will also use the sound system and a white board to keep everyone up to date on the running order.

There will be one-way traffic signs directing you after leaving the dock.


Hand sanitizer will be available in various locations throughout the grounds, including the admin tent, all bathrooms, at the bottom of the dock, and the ribbon table.

The dock stair railing and gates will be sanitized with a disinfecting solution after every 20 dogs and before and after each splash.  There will be disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer at the bottom of the dock for competitors to use if they wish.  The pool will also be chlorinated and AR bumpers sanitized and rinsed before returning to competitor or being placed on the rig.

All workers will respect social distancing and use hand sanitizer before and after transactions with customers, and all high touch surfaces and bathrooms will be sanitized throughout the day.


Ribbon labels will be filled out by one person per splash and ribbons will be placed on a table on the far side of the admin tent immediately following the splash.

We realize that some of these steps may be a little inconvenient, but we really appreciate everyone's cooperation so that we may continue to hold events while doing our best to keep everyone safe and comfortable.
