Strake Jesuit Tournament

2021 — Houston, TX/US

YOU ARE INVITED TO THE 
ninth ANNUAL STRAKE JESUIT DEBATE TOURNAMENT 
ON DECEMBER 17-19, 2021

GREETINGS,

You are cordially invited to attend the ninth Strake Jesuit Tournament in Houston, TX.   This year we will be hosting our LD tournament ONLINE.  

We offer a Tournament of Champions (TOC) semis bid in Lincoln-Douglas debate.  What will set this tournament apart from others is the quality of our judging.  We have contracted with the Texas Debate Collective to provide LD judging.  As such, we promise to offer a wide variety of highly preferred judges.  Our affiliation with TDC will enable us to draw upon many of the best critics in the country.

 

  • We will have 6 preliminary rounds for Varsity LD. 
  • Judges will be assigned based off MPJ.  
  • We will be using the January/February NSDA resolution (Resolved: The appropriation of outer space by private entities is unjust).  
  • We request that all fees be paid in full before the start of the tournament.  
  • In lieu of trophies, we will be increasing our donation to TDC.
  • Judge Obligations are as follows:
    • One judge is required for every two entries
    • Schools can buyout each judging obligation for $150.
  • The PF Round Robin will be held on December 18-19, 2021.

 

Fees will be collected using our online payment portal.  Checks and other forms of payment will not be accepted. All entries will be waitlisted pending payment.  Once payment has been sent, please kindly wait up to 72 hours for tabroom to update.  The link for payment can be found on your school's invoice or here: https://www.strakejesuit.org/student-life/debate/tournament-information

 

Please feel free to contact any of us with questions.
