Unique Training For DX Members 

DX Officials go through an extensive training program teaching skills, difficulty levels, applying points to the MSHSL score sheet and most importantly, the unique shorthand system. The DX shorthand system allows officials to write down the entire routine in a shorthand form without having their eyes leave the floor. Once the routine is finished, officials refer to their notes while determining the appropriate score line item by line item. This system provides a higher level of accurate judging in a timely manner.

DX encourages coaches to learn the shorthand and DX Judging System.
