Default Dock Diving

I have a few questions....

When you register your dog at an event, it's usually $25 for a "wave", from what I see.

So for example, if a day looks like this:

Onsite Registration / Practice - 8:00 am
Big Air Wave # 1 - 9:00 am
Big Air Wave # 2 - 11:00 am
Big Air Wave # 3 - 1:00 pm
Extreme Vertical - 3:00 pm
Big Air Wave # 4 - 5:00 pm

Do most people put their dogs in EVERY wave? or no? Do you have to stay all day? Like, would it be okay to say register for big air wave #1, get there at 8 to practice, your dog hopefully does a jump in wave #1 at 9, and then leave or not do anymore waves?

What happens if a dog just doesn't jump? lol, how long do you have up there to try and encourage?

Also, is a dog allowed to wear a life jacket during a wave?

When it comes to divisions, I know they have a lap dog category, what is the height limit on this? When it comes to prizes... what if Jackson was the only "lap dog" for example, would he automatically win first prize? lol, if he was the only one in his division.

Just clueless about any rules, and since Jackson is getting so good at jumping, I really do want to try him out. I found a facility very close to me that has a pool and often has private lessons or open pool/etc, on certain days, so I want to try him out on an actual dock diving pool, but there's two events coming up close to me I want to check out.
