Welcome to the home page for the 2021 LSUS "Just Keep Swimming" Team IPDA and Charity Debate tournament hosted by Louisiana State University Shreveport on Mar 19-21, 2021 for College students.

Status: Accepting Entries

On behalf of Louisiana State University Shreveport, and the James Noel Smith Foundation, we invite you to the first annual LSUS Just Keep Swimming Virtual Team IPDA tournament and Charity debates. This event will be held on March 19-21, 2021, via Forensicstournament.net and Yaatly. 

This competition will be a unique experience. We will feature 4 preliminary rounds of Team IPDA debate and the appropriate number of elimination rounds. In addition, we will feature a charity Team Debate event. This event will model the TIPDA format but will allow debaters that fall into the professional category of IPDA eligibility to participate. Teams do not have to be made up of participants from the same program, in fact, we are encouraging teams to be made up of members from around the country, past and present. The charity portion of this event will not be a sanctioned tournament but will count against eligibility requirements. Further information on both portions of the tournament is detailed in the invite. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at any time. 

We look forward to an amazing event and your participation.
