Hendrickson Swing

2023 — Austin, TX/US


We would like to welcome you to the Hendrickson/Pflugerville Swing Tournament. The tournament will take place IN PERSON at Hendrickson High School on Friday, September 1 and Saturday, September 2. This is our team's 20th anniversary and we are very excited to continue to provide high-quality judging, a phenomenal hospitality suite, and a positive educational experience for your students.

We will offer the full set of events in IEs and Debate (including World Schools), including novice divisions of extemp, LD, and Policy Debate. Additionally, this tournament is a Kentucky TOC and NIETOC bid for all IE events and extemp. Please take special note of the particulars of the schedule and format, as it is very different from previous years.

For the purpose of this tournament, a Novice is considered someone in their first year of high school competition. We also offer scaffolded Novice Extemp and require the NDCA Novice CX Packet for all of our novice CX rounds (click on "Topics" on the right side for more information). We WILL NOT break brackets in debate. Debate is NOT a swing and will be a traditional tournament schedule (see schedule for cross-entry limits).

Your school must have a school employee to be available for all tournament times/rounds to judge and provide support for the tournament when needed. This individual is required to be in the judging pool. For more information on this, click "Judging Rules" on the right side.

Additionally, there were be a limited number of Hendrickson students competing on the Hendrickson side of the swing under the Home Rule initiative.

We look forward to providing an exciting educational experience for all.

Director, Hendrickson Speech & Debate
