Clarification of Novice vs. JV vs. Varsity

1. A student competing for the first time at any time during the SCDL tournament year (Sept-May) is novice regardless of which semester they begin competing.

The next SCDL tournament year (Sept-May) in which the student competes, will be considered that student’s JV year. After the 2nd year, the student is considered varsity. Debate/Congress/Speech are all lumped together ·

Ex.: a student competes at package deal…the clock begins ticking on their “novice status” ·

Ex.: a student competes at Novice Champs only…the clock is about to run out on the student’s novice status ·

Ex.: a student competes at Fall novice during their freshman year and then quits. The student returns as a senior…the student is JV ·

Ex.: a student competes their freshman year at fall debate only then quits the team. The student returns as a senior to compete in Fall Novice speech…the student would be in the JV category.

2. When there is no JV category, JV students must compete varsity. Students can compete up, but they can’t compete down.

3. If a student QUALIFIES for the CHSSA State Championships or the NFL National Championships, the student automatically becomes varsity in all events immediately.

Trophies will be awarded to the top competitor in each event
Top 10% (roughly) will receive Outstanding Ribbons
Top 11-20% (roughly) will receive Excellence Ribbons
    Ribbons will be placed in school packet with critique sheets
 
Each coach may select an MVP or top student participating at each novice tournament. That student would be recognized at the award ceremony, with a medal by each individual coach. The medal will say SCDL MVP. It is the coach’s discretion whether or not to give the award. Please see Kevin Tong for more information and name of awardee.
