Meadows LD Scrimmage 3

2021 — NSDA Campus, NV/US

This scrimmage is not an open tournament – it is a Novice LD practice round scrimmage between invited schools.


Here are the things that I think went well last year:


1. Four single flighted rounds. It would start at 8:00 AM and be done by 3:00 PM. One judge for every two debaters. I want all of the rounds judged by varsity debaters, so that coaches can focus on teaching. Please make sure that you enter responsible varsity debaters, and remind them about appropriate behavior in novice rounds:

·      Positive comments and constructive criticism

·      Written comments

·      Oral explanations

·      Mature behavior


2. Two Preset debates, with Two Paired debates.


3. Mandatory Caselist Wiki the night before. It is okay to me if you have a “Novice” wiki page, if they are all essentially running the same arguments and cases.


4. We would use NSDA Campus.


5. No entry limits or entry fees. Must provide own judging.
