Hello MAFL Friends!

We're so excited to kick off a new season of forensics with all of you! This semester, MAFL will be splitting each weekend into one synchronous and one asynchronous tournament. They will be as follows:


MAFL 7 – Asynchronous (Judging Tuesday, February 22 – Friday, February 25 | Awards Saturday, February 26)
Entry deadline: Monday, February 21 @8:00PM CST
​MAFL 7 will be hosted asynchronously, with entries submitted via SpeechWire. More detailed information can be found below.

  • Novices: MAFL 7 will also feature a Novice division, where any competitors in their first 2 years of collegiate speech can be recognized as the Top Novice in their event. Please designate your students as Novice at registration, if appropriate!

MAFL 8 – Synchronous (Saturday, February 26)
Entry deadline: Tuesday, February 22 @5:00PM CST
MAFL 8 will be hosted synchronously on Zoom, with entries submitted via SpeechWire. More detailed information can be found here: https://www.speechwire.com/c-info.php?tournid=12788

  • Coaches Meeting: At 12:00PM CST, we will have our spring coaches' meeting. All MAFL member coaches are welcome to attend, and for those interested in hosting MAFL for a weekend in the 2022-23 season, please send an email to MAFL President Vance Pierce (vpierce4@uic.edu)!
  • Charity: All points earned by competitors at MAFL 8 will contribute towards a donation of the host school's choosing!


The Mid-America Forensic League is committed to inclusiveness and welcomes students and coaches from all identities and social roles. In light of ongoing harassment and discrimination, MAFL stands in solidarity with and will continue to offer a safe, educational space for our most vulnerable members. In this spirit, if you (students, coaches, or judges) encounter any issues that impede your ability to be mentally and physically well at the tournament, please seek out the MAFL Wellness Advocate. The MAFL Vice President, Sade Barfield, is serving as the 2021-2022 MAFL Wellness Advocate.

Entries: Each school may enter 6 students per event. Each student may enter up to 4 events. Because of the 1 hour and 15-minute time limit for each round, it is strongly recommended that students are only double-entered and not triple-entered in a pattern. It is the responsibility of the student to make it to their rounds on time. Judges cannot wait past the time allotted for the round. Students may not enter all 4 events in one pattern.

Fees: Please remember that at the first MAFL you attend, you will be required to submit your yearly membership dues of $300.00. This payment entitles your school to attend all of the remaining 2021-2022 MAFLs. A non-member school may attend 1 MAFL weekend per season without paying membership dues, but instead, pay $8 per entered slot and uncovered judge fees.

Limited Prep (Extemp & Impromptu): Limited Prep prompts for MAFL 7 will be posted on this page by 10:00 AM CST on Saturday, February 19th.

  • Impromptu: Prep must be included in the video submission
  • Only 1 video submission is required for MAFL 7. It will be used in both prelims and finals.

Beyond your one-time membership dues, the only fees you will pay at each tournament are for uncovered or dropped slots. Each full-time judge covers 6 slots, and uncovered slots are $10 each. If you bring more than 20 uncovered slots, the fee will be increased to $20 for each slot beyond 20.

Please do not hesitate to contact me (HillKA28@uww.edu or 630-624-6740) if you have any questions about MAFL tournaments or using SpeechWire. We look forward to seeing you soon!
