Center High School Winter Classic at SFA

January 27 and January 28, 2023

We are delighted to invite you to Center High School’s Winter Classic at SFA on Friday and Saturday, January 27th and 28th. We are going to do something a little different this year with debate only on Friday and academic events on Saturday, so read carefully!

Friday, the plan is to have 5 rounds of CX and LD debate. The schedule will be:

8:00 Round 1

9:30 Round 2

11:00 Round 3

1:00 Round 4

2:30 Round 5

This is a great opportunity to get in a bunch of rounds and good practice for your district tournament. Initial entries will be limited to 3 CX and 3LD with a waitlist. After the Tuesday entry deadline, waitlist entries will be entered.

Saturday will be an academic tournament without debate, but with extemp and interp. We will follow the conflict pattern. (Schedule is at:

Judging requirements:

Friday: Each school is expected to supply a judge for every TWO CX debate entries or portion thereof, and for every LD entries or portion thereof. CX judges cannot cover LD obligations and vice versa.

Saturday: On judge for every four IE/Extemp entry or portion thereof. Prose judges cannot cover Poetry obligations and vice versa. Persuasive judges cannot cover Informative obligations and vice versa. Graders/judges will be required for each academic event entered. Graders/judges will need to follow the conflict pattern as well. Testing materials will be 3rd party (Hexco, TMSCA).

There will be a $100 missing judge fee per event.
