La Reina Invitational Debate Tournament

2018 — Thousand Oaks, CA, CA/US

Dear MS or HS Debate Teacher/Coach:

You and your team are invited to the La Reina School Invitational Debate Tournament In in Thousand Oaks, CA on Saturday, December 1, 2018.  The tourney is open to all middle and high school students and is designed to help new and continuing programs compete in a supportive and educational environment. 

We will be offering four rounds plus elims in both Middle School and High School Parliamentary, Lincoln-Douglas and Public Forum debate formats in two divisions: open and novice . 

Local Ventura County schools interested in attending but without an established program are welcome to contact La Reina HS for educational support and student coaching.

We’ll be using the September/October Lincoln Douglas topic and the November Public Forum topic. 

Novice debaters in Middle or High School are those in their first year of competition without having advanced to elimination rounds at a prior tournament.  

We ask all schools to cover at least 50% of their judging commitment. Varsity high school debaters are allowed to judge Middle School rounds and novice High School rounds.

We hope that your school or organization will be joining us at La Reina in December.


Melan Jaich

Tournament Director
