Dear Forensics Community,

 

We are excited to welcome you to our 2021-2022 Regular Season online tournaments. These four tournaments are a great way to prepare your students for Nationals & afford extra rounds to students on your team. A condensed three preliminary and one final round schedule ensures students get the practice they need without the hassle of waiting around all day for rounds. Save money with $0 travel costs. Run by experienced tournament directors, these tournaments are sure to be some of the best online tournaments your students attend all year.

 

The tournament will offer competition at all levels, from kindergarten to college, in a wide range of events. We have the very best qualified tournament staff assembled to ensure a smooth day of fun competition.  Our schedule will include three prelims and a final (using Bronze/Silver/Gold award system) with each competition level taking only half the day (see schedule below). Winners will receive bronze/silver/gold medals.

Key Points:

  • Registration is due by 6pm Pacific the Wednesday before each tournament on ForensicsTournament.net

  • Students will need to compete with the authorization and support of their school or program’s coaching staff.  No independent student entries will be accepted. 

  • Each school is required to provide one judge for every 5 IE entries per pattern/2 debate teams. At the discretion of the Tournament Director, uncovered entries may be allowed but penalty fees will apply. Since all events are scheduled at the same time, please be aware of your school’s judging commitment. 

  • NOTE: Students may both compete and judge divisions (if eligible) during the tournament. For example, college students who compete in the morning may judge high school and elementary rounds in the afternoon. Contact us if you are interested in being hired as a judge.

  • The tournament will use synchronous video conferencing on the 8x8 platform. Please see the Best Practices section of this invite for tips on how to effectively prepare for competing online.

  • There will be a single division for all events.

  • All NOF individual and debate events will be offered. 

  • Most high school and college final rounds will be live-streamed through YouTube.

  • The complete list of NOF rules can be found here.

 

We hope you and your team can join us throughout the season for a day of summer forensics fun.  If you have any questions please feel free to email us at info@nationalonlineforensics.org 

 

Sincerely,

Danny Cantrell, Robert Cannon, and Mike Kyle

  • Students may double enter in IE events

  • Students may single enter in Debate events

  • In the event of small entry sizes, we may need to collapse events within their event category (so interp events collapse to an “interp” event).

  • Congress will have three prelims only scheduled at 8:00am, 9:30am, and 11:00am for the morning sessions; afternoon will be scheduled at 1:30pm, 3:00pm, and 4:30pm. Placings will be based on preliminary scores.
