All NSDA chapters in the Florida Oceanfront District are cordially invited to participate in this year’s District Congress Tournament, to be held on the campus of Palm Beach State College, Palm Beach Gardens Campus on Friday, March 31. The Florida Oceanfront NSDA District officers are working hard to get ready for this event!
This tournament determines all of our district’s Congressional Debate qualifiers to the 2017 Lincoln Financial Group/NSDA National Championship to be held June 19-23, 2017 in Birmingham, AL.
NSDA District Congress Tournament entry procedures and event rules are quite different from CFL and FFL tournaments; please expect to meet all of the requirements established by NSDA. The NSDA staff in Ripon, Wisconsin will audit the entire tournament. Our failure to follow NSDA procedures could result in the invalidation of our results, so it is imperative that you meet all deadlines and follow all NSDA rules. The District Committee must follow and enforce NSDA policies!
Get All of the Facts!
While this website will highlight major rules and procedures, each member school has an affirmative responsibility to review the rules that are published by NSDA. Specifically, all coaches should go to the NSDA website and review the 2016-17 NSDA High School Unified Manual.
Coaches should copy the event-specific rules and judging guidelines for their students and judges so that everyone will know what to expect. All of this information is available in the publication mentioned above.
We look forward to working with you!
Your Florida Oceanfront NSDA District Committee:
Paul L. Gaba, Angela Anyzeski, Traci Lowe, Phyllis Pacilli, and Kristie Taylor
