The 14th Annual Hurricane Debate Tournament at Holy Trinity

2020 — NSDA Campus, TX/US

You are cordially invited to attend the 14th Annual Hurricane Debate tournament, hosted by Holy Trinity Catholic High School.  This will be our first ONLINE tournament.

The purpose of the Hurricane Tournament is to give students exposure to different kinds of debate and to provide several rounds to get the year going strong.

Events will include Varsity and Novice Lincoln-Douglas Debate, Public Forum Debate, and Extemporaneous Debate.  Students can participate in ALL THREE types of debate!


Judges:  This tournament is a low-budget affair!  We will not be hiring judges.  We ask that you provide as many judges as possible.  At a minimum, please provide at least one judge for every two PFD teams, and one judge for every four LDers.  Please know that we will be using parents and other limited experience judges as necessary.  One-year out students (students who graduated last year) are welcome.  

Schools attending the Hurricane Tournament typically succeed using a traditional debating presentation.  Progressive habits like spreading, K's, policy-style LD typically do not do well at this tournament. 

 CHECKS should be made to Holy Trinity Catholic High School and mailed to:
