Dear Colleagues:

We invite you to join us for the 23rd annual Hell Froze Over Swing for colleges and universities, to be hosted by our two friendly forensics programs this year on the Bradley University campus, January 15 and 16, 2022.

We appreciate your willingness to trust us with the safety of you and your students this weekend. We are doing everything in our power to provide a safe, educational and fun experience for all! 

There will several COVID-19 protocols in place such as indoor masking, limited audiences in final rounds, and more. While not required, we encourage everyone who is able to get vaccinated/boosted.

The swing will consist of two, one-day tournaments, reducing your travel time. Each tournament will offer all eleven AFA-NIET events and will follow AFA event descriptions.

We look forward to welcoming you back in person to one of our favorite times of the year!
