Hello coaches and judges who are registered for the upcoming NSDA Middle School National Tournament! The tournament is just weeks away, and I wanted to send along a few important reminders.

1. Enter secondary emergency contact info. Most schools are missing the name, phone, and email of a secondary contact (an adult chaperone, school official, etc.). It is essential that we have this info to ensure your students' safety! Please login to Tabroom.com and check the "general" tab of your registration to check this info is complete. If not, it will hold you up during registration!

2. The schedule is online! Note that there is a mandatory judge training for all judges at 9:15 a.m. on Wednesday morning. Check it out here.

3. All judges will adjudicate using online ballots through Tabroom.com. Judges, please check to be sure you can login to your Tabroom.com account. Coaches, remind your judges to bring along their preferred device to fill out a ballot! Cell phones will work, though most judges prefer to bring a laptop or tablet if available. Judges may fill out their ballot on the judge pooling room's computers if needed.

4. Judges should complete our cultural competency training course. Please share this free, brief course with your judges to help make our tournament safe and educational for our students! Judges interested in receiving training in judging their event can take the full course online here

5. Students in Interp and OO must bring required materials to the tournament. Read the full guidelines about the script turn-in for all students in quarterfinals on Thursday!

Thank you so much and see you all soon!

Lauren Burdt
