Capital City Extemp Round Robin

2023 — Pflugerville, TX/US

Capital City Extemporaneous Speaking
Round Robin

Greetings coaches,

After a brief Covid-hiatus, the Texas Capital City Extemporaneous Speaking Round Robin is back! This will be the 11th year of the tournament and we are excited to invite some of the best extemporaneous speakers from across the state.

Due to the historical success of Texas’ extemporaneous speakers on the national level, this tournament is designed to provide an opportunity for the best in the state to work together, practice, learn, and hone their skills in preparation for upcoming highly-competitive tournaments. Historically, students attending the Cap City Round Robin have gone on to win or final at TFA State, NSDA Nationals, Harvard, Berkeley, and other prestigious tournaments. The tournament also affords coaches the opportunity to exchange best practices and learn from peers who are also passionate about developing informed, articulate speakers.

We hope to make this experience as enjoyable and instructive as possible, and with your participation, we believe this will be a wonderful opportunity for some of Texas’ most talented speakers.
