San Fran Bay District Tournament
2023 — CA/US
San Fran Bay District Qualifier
for the 2023 National Tournament
Speech Tournament Procedures
As required by the NSDA, we will hold three preliminary rounds of competition in every speech event using two-judge panels.
The NSDA requires that a minimum of 25% of event entries break to elimination rounds.
These are the break rules we will employ for the 2023 tournament:
Events with fewer than 12 entries will break directly to finals at 2:30pm (with the top 6 advancing to finals) while we will break the top 50% of the field in events with 12 or more entries. If only six entries break, we will proceed directly to finals at 2:30pm. If more than six entries break, we will proceed to semi-finals at 2:30pm and finals (top 6) at 4:30pm.
We will use two-judge panels in prelims; three-judge panels in semis; and five-judge panels in finals.
