The Irvine Coding Club Summer 2021 Tournament Invitation
July 31st, 2021
Greetings to all middle school debaters!
The Irvine Coding Club (yes, we are aware of the irony.) is proud to announce that we are hosting our 2021 summer debate tournament for middle schoolers! For this summer, the only event available is congress, and only for middle schoolers. However, more events such as PF or LD will be added in the future. This tournament will be online because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please check out the best practices guide, which is linked on the tournament home page (https://forensicstournament.net/ICCTournament/21). It has a guide on how to best navigate the online tournament environment and what judges, competitors, and coaches should do.
All fees should be paid through this website (https://forensicstournament.net/ICCTournament/21/fees), coaches can access this with the “Tournament Fees” tab to the left hand side. If fees aren’t paid on time, postings for elims, awards, etc will be withheld until they are.
Throughout the entire tournament, please go to this link: https://8x8.vc/ICChelp if you are having trouble with anything. There will be someone in there the whole time willing to help out and fix the issue.
The tournament will be held on Saturday, July 31st! All middle schoolers are allowed to join. Entries close on the 24th.
All events will follow NSDA bylaws. The PDF of their event rules are linked on the tournament home page.
Postings will be sent to students, coaches and judges before each round starts. Coaches should update student contact information so that the emails reach them. Coaches can test the phone number/email by clicking the verify button, and must also choose posting preferences. The default posting preference is paper, and this means that the student will never receive postings unless it is changed to email or text.
Awards will be streamed on Youtube after the events are finished. After the tournament, trophies will be shipped to school addresses. Please be patient as they are being shipped, but every student who earned a trophy will receive it eventually.
The schedule is as follows:
Round 1 - 8:00 am
Round 2 - 9:30 am
Round 3 - 11:00 am
Lunch - 12:30 pm
Finals - 2:00 pm
Awards - 5:00 pm
We wish competitors good luck and hope to see you at the tournament!
