 We are thrilled to invite you to attend our Novice Only Tournament!   

Novice UIL AND *NSDA Events Offered:

  • CX (3 Rounds)
  • LD (3 Rounds)
  • Informative/Persuasive (*IEX) Extemp
  • Prose/Poetry
  • Congressional Debate

Each team/debator can have one “Angel” (experienced debater or coach) with them for all their rounds. In the case that Angels are not present, judges can offer guiding advise. Debaters get 50% more prep time in Round 1, 25% more prep time in Round 2, and normal time in Round 3. 

 What an Angel does:

  • advisor and mentor
  • helps with flow, strategy, and prep time them between speeches
  • gradually decreases the amount of help given to their debaters as the rounds progress

What an Angel does NOT do:

  • take over the debate

  • give speeches or portions of speeches or call out prompts

  • personally compete with the opponent's Angel

This tournament features multiple rounds for critiques and helpful ballots. Quality competition this early on is critical to the success of students. If you have any questions about NSDA (we are a member!) or UIL, please do not hesitate to contact us, and we will be happy to help in any way we can.  We look forward to seeing you!
