Carolina West District Tournament
2024 — NC/US
Carolina West District Qualifier
for the 2024 National Tournament
Members of the Carolina West District,
We want to welcome all of you to the 2024 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 two weekends.
Our tournament for Speech, Lincoln Douglas and Public Forum will be held Friday and Saturday March 15-16, at Riverside High School in Greer, SC. Registration for that tournament will also be at this site. Although we are partnering with the South Carolina NSDA District, Carolina West students will NOT compete against South Carolina students.
Congress, Policy and Big Questions competitors will qualify through a virtual tournament using NSDA Campus on Sunday, April 14. 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. We look forward to seeing all of you at both tournaments in this NSDA National Qualifier series!
