The Ivy Street Round Robin is a highly competitive round robin offered at Marist School (Atlanta, Georgia) prior to the prestigious Barkley Forum for High Schools at Emory University.   The round robin features nine competitively successful teams from around the country for two days of competition prior to Emory.

The round robin will feature two panelists in each round providing full written ballots to ensure the best educational experience for your students.   The panelists will be head coaches, assistant coaches, former champion public forum debaters and college debaters.  Our goal is that each student can walk away from the Ivy Street Round Robin with eight rounds of intense debate and feedback to succeed at the most important time of the season.

The entry fee for the Round Robin is $250 per team.  The entry fee covers a t-shirt, a timer, meals and the Ivy Street Social for each team and their coach throughout the tournament.   Each team is expected to bring a qualified judge for the round robin, if that is not possible, one will be hired for you for $240.
