Welcome to the Central Florida Debate Initiative!
All member schools of the Central Florida Debate Initiative are cordially invited to participate in our after-school tournaments! This tournament will offer novice and middle school competition only. The tournament will take place on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at Trinity Preparatory School.
Registration: Registration for each tournament will be on this website. No e-mail registration will be accepted. New coaches will need to visit this website and set up a user name for their account prior to registering. If you need help setting up your JOT account, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org . Coaches should NOT give access to the website to their students. Registration must be completed by the coach on the JOT account.
Registration is due Friday, January 31, 2020 by 6PM. If you drop an entry after this deadline, the entry fee is still owed. Drops after midnight on Feb. 4 will incur a $25 per student drop fee as well as forfeiture of the entry fee. Please plan ahead! Drop fees will be strictly enforced!
At the tournament, coaches will complete final registration (payment of fees and distribution of schematics and judge assignments)between 3:45-4PM in the media center. Final registration is NOT the place to make changes. Please alert the tournament directors (Beth or Tara) prior to final registration if you must make changes.
Schedule: Please plan to arrive at the school between 3:30-3:45PM. Students should report to the cafeteria. Judges should report to the media center. Posting and judge call will happen in those locations. Rounds will begin at 4:15PM. We will have two rounds of competition with a short break in-between followed by an awards ceremony. We hope to finish by 7PM.
Adult Supervision: The adult coach designated by each school must be present for the entire tournament. In addition, all parent volunteers should be cleared through their specific county's volunteer application process.
