Welcome to the Central Florida Debate Initiative Championship!
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 30, 2019 at Apopka HS.
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 22, 2019 by 6PM. If you drop an entry after this deadline, the entry fee is still owed. If you drop an entry between March 23-28, you will incur a fine of the entry fee and $2 penalty per student. Drops after noon on March 29 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 Apopka HS 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.
