The first year you start in the program, you have to earn at least 5 scores of 60% or above at CDS or USDF shows. After that, any year that you earn at least one score at or above 60%, you get a plate. Scores at or above 60% are called rosettes. The first year we were eligible, Speedy and I earned 11 rosettes (4 at Introductory C and 7 at Training Level). In 2013, we proudly earned 16 rosettes at Training Level, and all of those scores were earned at USDF shows.
Keep your fingers crossed for us, will you?
