Welcome to the home page for the 2023 James ‘Al’ Johnson Memorial Speech Swing & Debate Tournament - Swing Day 1 tournament hosted by Colorado College on Oct 28, 2023 for College students.

Status: Accepting Entries

Dear Colleague:  


The Colorado College cordially invites you to attend the James ‘Al’ Johnson Forensic Invitational to take place on the CC campus in Colorado Springs, on October 28-29th. We are excited to welcome you to the CC campus!  


This year’s swing will include two individual event tournaments with 11 AFA-NST events (open division only) and one IPDA debate tournament. The debate tournament will be held Saturday, with four preliminary and two to three elimination rounds of open IPDA debate depending on number of entries. Please note that competitors will not be able to compete in both IPDA and Speech on Saturday as the schedules overlap. Tournament entries, submitted via Forensicstournament.net, should be received no later than Monday, Oct. 23rd.


The invitation includes all tournament information and logistics. If there is a question you don't find answered, please contact us. We hope that you will join us in the shadow of beautiful Pikes Peak for a superb fall tournament.  


We look forward to hosting your team! 


Warm regards,
