MY PLEA TO YOU: PLEASE READ EVERY WORD OF THE INFORMATION PROVIDED AND CALL ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS.
The Arizona NSDA District Committee is pleased to invite you to this year’s national qualifying tournament. We look forward to your participation in one of the most exciting and the most important tournaments of the year, and we eagerly anticipate the selection of the finest slate of competitors to represent our state at the NSDA National Tournament.
The District Tournament will be a three (3) day event and follow the new NSDA PILOT rules. Because Policy Debate will be so small, we have permission to run a Round Robin style of tournament. In order to be completely transparent on how this tournament is run, please make sure you, your judges and most importantly, your students read the information that pertains to them and their events.
The NSDA manual that governs this tournament can be found at https://www.speechanddebate.org/high-school-unified-manual/. I encourage you to become familiar with all of the rules and regulations.
It is vitally important for everyone to understand that this tournament, above all others, is absolutely the most tedious to prepare and run for everyone involved. As coaches, YOU have so many details YOU must take care of if you want your students to be able to compete in this tournament. The committee cannot and will not allow a school to enter and compete if the requirements have not been met. For event-specific information, see the EVENT INFORMATION document.
Congress Legislation Submission Deadline: Monday, February 28, 2022, at 8:00 p.m.
Entry Deadline: Thursday, March 10, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. (This includes titles for OO, INF, and all INT info.)
Judge Entry Deadline: Monday, March 14, 2022, at 8:00 p.m
PLEASE bring as many entries, in both Congress and the District Qualifier, that your team is allotted. We automatically qualify 3 entries in each event if we meet the minimum entries required. However, if we exceed 50 entries in each event, who actually compete, in any event, we will qualify a 4th competitor in that event. This can be the most exciting of tournaments because we never know who will qualify. I have personally qualified freshmen and novices in almost all of the events. Coaches, we have an obligation to keep the dream alive. Please never tell them, "It isn't worth going, because you won't qualify."
A WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY
The NSDA is again offering entry to the National tournament in multiple supplemental events to two non-qualifying students from each team that competes at the AZ District Tournament.
