Thank you for your interest in the 2019 Lindale UIL Prep Tournament. We are excited to welcome you to Lindale. Our tournament will be held Friday, January 18 and Saturday, January 19. Please check our schedule tab for the list of events and when they will compete. We are excited to offer every UIL academic contest, every UIL speech and debate contest, as well as some other events (Humorous, Dramatic, Duo, and Original Oratory). For the UIL speech and debate events, students who place will qualify for the NTDA Championship tournament. For our academic contests, we will utilize the official UIL Set A materials. Please keep this in mind when registering for our tournament. Students who have previously taken this test should NOT participate. UIL academic (non speech/debate) events will be divided into Large (6A, 5A, 4A) and Small (3A, 2A, 1A, Private) Schools unless there are not sufficient entries in an event to warrant this division.
We are also excited to offer a Saturday version of CX. This will be three rounds of CX Debate. This is ideal for those who either 1) cannot come on Friday or 2) don't advance to Saturday's elimination rounds, but do wish to receive more practice for UIL districts. Studnets may enter both the FULL CX Debate tournament and the Saturday only CX Debate tournament, but if they advance in the FULL tournament, they will be removed from the Saturday only. (Please let me know if you have questions about this procedure.)
We are exciting about hosting you. Please review the tabs at the top of our Joy of Tournaments page to find all of the information you should need to compete. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have additional questions or concerns.
My students and I look forward to hosting you!
