Damus Hollywood Invitational and USC Round Robin

2019 — Los Angeles - Notre Dame HS, Ha, CA/US


USC Round Robin

We invite you to apply to the USC Round Robin.  We are offering the opportunity for high-quality competition for up to 8 teams on October 31 - November 1, 2019. Teams are then encouraged to stay and compete at the Damus Hollywood Invitational at Notre Dame High School from November 2-4, 2019.


Teams will compete in single pod with seven preliminary debates with the top 2 teams advancing to a final elimination round. There will be two judges per preliminary round and three to five judges for the final round.


We ask that each team bring one judge per team. We will do our best to keep judging commitments modest with substantial judging from the USC Debate squad, staff and LA debate community.


All competitors are invited to stay at the USC Hotel (formerly the Radisson) next to USC’s campus. All competition will take place on USC’s campus or the hotel. Further hotel information can be found on the website under the “Hotels” tab.
