Tournament Etiquette Tidbits:

  • All debaters and the judge should mute themselves while not talking

  • Heckles will NOT be allowed at this tournament to guarantee that all arguments can be heard. 

  • POIs will be allowed. When the speaker wishes to POI, they will unmute themselves and offer a POI.

  • All cameras must always be on. 

  • There won’t be prep time, but members can discuss with each other before the round officially begins. All teams can use any printed or written plans. 

  • To discuss with teammates during the round, use a group chat platform of your choice. 

  • No one is allowed to screenshot or record any debates - if we find you doing so, you will be disqualified (No exceptions!) 

  • Please leave your video call as soon as the round is over and feedback is given.

  • Spectators are only allowed if all students are fine with it. Please bring it up in the beginning of the round if you are not comfortable with a spectator present.
