Coal City High School is pleased to announce that it will host its 17th annual Winter Break Speech Invitational, this year, on December 18th, 2021.  Obviously things are still a little different this year and I am still trying to wrap my head around how we are going to operate.  As of right now, we are going to try and keep everything as similar to years past as we can, with the intent to be as close to "normal" as possible. The Coal City coaching staff is still working on the specifics of the tournament and how it will function, but rest assured we will have a tournament on that date and when more decisions have been made, we will make sure everyone is aware of them.  My email address is dsinkular@coalcityschools.org if you have any questions.  

 Please make checks payable to Coal City High School. 

Tentative schdule (very tentative as of right now)

2 staggered rounds to be held Saturday morning starting at 8am.

Varsity and Novice final rounds to start as close to 2pm as possible

Awards to begin around 4pm



General Information

1.      Please register on Speechwire as soon as possible. Space is limited.


2.      Complete the registration through Speechwire  by December 16th! Please enter numbers as soon as possible and update them as they change.  You can enter names any time prior to the start of the meet.


3.      You can either mail me your check for $150 made payable to Coal City High School or bring it with you to the tournament.


4.      Radio and Extemp will prep on site for the first round and then again for finals.


5.      We would ask that all judges be prepared to time and to consider time somewhat in their rankings.  Gross violations of time limits should be penalized.  Judges in Impromptu and Extemp will also time, so bring at least one stopwatch per team!!  Make sure your judges know how to signal time correctly for all events, but especially for Impromptu and Extemp!


6.      Each school is to provide one judge for every 4 entries, up to 5 judges per team. Again, schools that bring extra entries will need to bring extra judges.  ALL judges must wait for assignments to finals regardless of whether or not their school has students in finals.


7.      Physical awards will be given, including hoodies.


8.      We are still working on food.  As soon as I know more, I will let you know.


10.        If you have any questions please email dsinkular@coalcityschools.org
