Students CAN double enter. A student may enter one debate event (CX, LD, PF, Parli) and up to 2 IEs. However, students participating in congress may only compete in 1 IE (Congress), not 2. Congress students can still also enter 1 debate event.
We strongly encourage that schools bring their varisty students to judge at the Novice Tournament. Please see the above section on Eligibility for age restrictions.
If a school brings adult judges, please enter judges under THEIR name, not as the name of their child.
One judge can NOT fill both a debate and an IE obligation. Attempting to double enter a judge will result in an uncovered judge obligation fee.
Judges will be in the active pool for all 3 rounds of their event type, and for 1 round of the other pattern. For example, debate judges will be in the pool for all 3 debate rounds, and 1 IE round. Judges will be on standby for the other two rounds of their other pattern type.
All events will be initially capped at 10 entries per school in order to provide all schools with an opportunity to enter. Entries beyond 10 will be waitlisted and granted entry based upon available space.
League Dues Invoice
League Dues are $130.00 per school per year. This includes both the OCSL dues and CHSSA dues that the OCSL will pay to CHSSA. If the school is on the list of schools that rolled over their judge bond with CHSSA they only need to pay $30. If a school does not intend to join CHSSA or wishes to pay CHSSA on their own they must send a letter to the League President outlining this choice. These are expected to be paid at or before a school's first OCSL tournament of the year. An invoice specifically for league dues is located on the front page of each OCSL tournament website. These dues only need to be paid once per year, not for each tourmament. In Invoice for each amount is provided to the right, please clarify with Sarah Sherwood as to which you owe.
