Welcome to the home page for the 2022 YODL #1 '22 tournament hosted by Alaska on Sep 30-1, 2022 for College students.

Status: Tournament Completed

Your squad is cordially invited to the first YODL tournament of the 2022-2023 academic year.  At this event, we’ll continue our experiments to explore best practice in BP debating.


YODL tournaments incorporate a number of approaches that are significantly different from traditional BP practice.  In brief, the major differences are:


* Each debate decides upon a topic via a topic striking process

* Points of privilege allowed during the round to address equity concerns in-round

* Escalated equity issues handled by the tournament host or designee with the option of involving the host institution's equity and compliance office

*Open deliberation following the debate, to be observed by the debaters


We expect that every participant--debaters, judges and observers--will read, understand and abide by the policies governing participation in YODL events.
