Welcome to the Central Florida Debate Initiative Championship!
Due to Covid-19, we regret we must postpone this tournament. If we are able to reschedule this school year, we will update on this website.
All member schools of the Central Florida Debate Initiative are cordially invited to participate in our novuce and middle school championship tournament! The CFDI Championship will take place Saturday, March 28, 2019 at Lake Highland 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 email@example.com . 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, March 20, 2020 by 6PM. For many of us, this deadline falls during spring break, so please plan ahead. We will not be able to add competitors after this time. If you drop an entry after this deadline, the entry fee is still owed. If you drop an entry between March 21-26, you will incur a fine of the entry fee and $2 penalty per student. Drops after noon on March 27 will incur a $25 per student drop fee as well as forfeiture of the entry fee. Please plan ahead!
At the tournament, coaches will complete final registration (payment of fees and distribution of schematics and judge assignments) between 8-8:30 AM 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 Lake Highland Prep between 7:45-8 AM. 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 9AM. We will have 3-4 rounds of preliminary competition (depending on registartion numbers) followed by elimination rounds. We hope to finish between 4- 6 PM.
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.
