California High School Speech Association State Championship
2023 — Carlsbad, CA/US
GENERALLY USEFUL INFO
- We ask that teams make sure that their judges are trained on not only the events, but also how to be productive, positive, equitable influences in the tournament space. We highly suggest that coaches have their judges complete the NFHS/ NSDA online judge training, which is totally free and which you can find here. The whole course takes about an hour. If your judges are experienced judges who are familiar with their events, it is still beneficial for those judges to take the quick, free refresher offered by the NFHS/NSDA on cultural competency when judging.
You may recall that in the past, CHSSA has always had a physical tournament registration for a few hours Friday morning before the tournament starts. This year, due to scheduling constraints, we will not be doing that. Instead, we are going to trust that you will share with your students their codes from Tabroom, that those competitors will be where they need to be when they need to be there, and that your judges will similarly be briefed and ready.
Instead, we ask that when you arrive at the tournament, that the Coach heads to our Help Desk to check in. There, we can give you tournament programs, a pennant for your classroom, a commemorative plaque (if you order one, see that note below!), and answer any questions you may have. This is also where all vouchers for the Food Insecurity Program will be picked up.
