Members of the Carolina West District,

We want to welcome all of you to the 2023 Carolina West District Tournament series. Our goal is to send our very best students to NSDA Nationals in Phoenix this June. This year's series will be held on three weekends.

We will be running our Congress district tournament this year at Ardrey Kell High School in Charlotte on Saturday, February 25. This will run concurrently with the Ardrey Kell regular season tournament for all other events. The Carolina West District Committee is allowing students to double enter in both the NSDA Congress district championship and the regular season Ardrey Kell tournament. You'll register your Congress entries on this site. If you will also be entering the Ardrey Kell tournament in other events, please register for that tournament at this link.

Our tournament for Speech, Lincoln Douglas and Public Forum will be held Friday and Saturday March 17-18, at TC Roberson High School in Asheville. Registration for that tournament will also be at this site.

Policy and Big Questions competitors will qualify through a virtual tournament using NSDA Campus on Saturday, March 25th. Registration for that tournament is on this Tabroom page.

We will the NSDA Unified Manual as our guide for this tournament. You should read and be familiar with this document as well as our district invitation and rules. This tournament has some unique rules that are not in effect for regular season tournaments. It is your responsibility to know these rules. You can find both the NSDA Unified Manual and our official district invitation rules posted in separate links to the right of this invitation.

PLEASE NOTE: For liability reasons, each school must have a faculty member present and fully available for the duration of the tournament, including registration. In lieu of a faculty member, the principal may designate an approved adult that will be present for the entire tournament and accept full responsibility for the team. This must be submitted ahead of the tournament in writing on school letterhead by the principal or headmaster. This applies to BOTH tournaments in the series. Additionally, we cannot accept independent entries and, per NSDA rules, ONLY the faculty coach of record can register the team online and fill out the hard copy paperwork. Please adhere to this very important rule.

Please be sure to read the information on this website to ensure your registration is conducted properly.Welook forward to seeing all of you at both tournaments in this NSDA National Qualifier series!

Most sincerely,

Your Carolina West District Committee:
Keith Pittman (Asheville & SILSA), District Chair
Scott Bennett (NW Guilford), Member
Mike Bischoff (North Mecklenburg), Member
