 The Coppell Classic
 January 8-10, 2021

Dear Colleagues and Competitors,

The Coppell High School Speech and Debate Team cordially invites you to the Coppell Classic, our 20th annual TFA qualifying tournament, January 8-10, 2020. We are so grateful to have an incredibly supportive administration and coaching staff, and we look forward to hosting this event virtually on a national scale.

We offer varsity/open competition in CX, LD, WSD, PF, Congress, and speech events. We will also offer NCX and NLD. Debate will feature 5 preliminary rounds beginning early Friday afternoon. Speech events will include 2 prelims and be held entirely on Saturday. All prepared individual events will run asynchronously. The tournament will feature TFA and NIETOC qualifying points.

Additionally, we will offer a swing tournament (Coppell 9th). This tournament will feature all asynchronous events that offer NIETOC and/or TFA qualifying status with 2 prelims and appropriate elims.

We are also happy to introduce a Round Robin series held on Sunday in LD, PF, and Extemp. Our goal will be to provide the highest level of competition we can for these events.

We promise to provide the best (online) hospitality we can, a relaxed schedule, qualified hired judges in all events, and an efficient tabulation staff with many decades of collective experience.

Registration is now open. Wait lists will be available as necessary. The entry deadline is Friday, December 18 at 5:00pm Central. You will find a schedule attached.

Please let one of us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you in January!
