Dear Illinois Debate Congressional Association Coach,
The Illinois Congressional Debate Association invites you to the ICDA State Championship Tournament on February 25, 2017 at William Rainey Harper College in Palatine, IL.
Entries: Enter up to ten Invitational debaters into the Invitational Chambers - they will be randomly distributed. Registration is due at 5:00PM on Friday, February 17 for both Invitational and Championship levels. You may drop and substitute debaters, but you may not make additions to your registration after February 17. Fees will be set at that time.
Enter up to four debaters composing your championship level team to the Championship Chambers. We will randomly distribute them.
NOTE: Participating teams must be ICDA members "in good standing". To be in good standing, teams must be current on all fees owed ICDA AND have a current "Official Representative Form" on file with ICDA.
Fees: Fees are due at registration the day of the tournament (2/25/17). All entry fees should be made payable to ICDA (not Harper College).
(1-2 debaters) = $50
(3-4 debaters) = $100
(1-10 debaters) = $11 per debater registered
Make entry checks out to: ICDA
Judging: When registering your judges in JOT, please use judge names for the championship level. Only coaches (preferably Head Coaches), who are on record with your school, may judge in the Championship chambers. Judges for the Championship will be assigned by name. Judges for the invitational tournament will be assigned by school. Please check both judge grids to determine your responsibilities.
Championship Judging Responsibilities = 1 judge per team
(be sure to include the name for the Championship judge)
Invitational Judging Responsibilities = 1 judge per team
Judge Grids and Chamber lists will not be posted at the tournament - only the Official ICDA Team Representative, or his/her designee (on file with Tim Waters), will receive the students' chamber assignments - students must communicate with this individual at the tournament to determine their chamber assignments.
