Welcome to the Naperville Central Tournament of Roses! Everything you need to know should be available on Speechwire, but if you need any additional assistance please email me at jslin@naperville203.org and I'll get back to you as quickly as possible.


Please check for updates below:

***Update 1 (09/13):  We will not be adding any extra entries on the day of the tournament. It really screwed us up last year, so please get those adds in by the deadline (Wed. Dec. 6)

***Update 2 (9/21): WOW, there are a lot of teams that have shown interest in coming. We will be capping registration at 25 teams. When the cap has been reached, you're out of luck. (Current number of teams: 24)

***Update 3 (9/25):  Registration has closed. We have hit our cap of 25 teams in record time.  If you'd like to be put on a wait-list for the tournament, please email me.  If your team needs to drop out, email me as well.

****Update 4 (11/27): We do not have any more room on our wait list.  We're currently eight schools deep on the wait list, and I don't know if it's realistic to even have those 8 join us. Thank you for the interest and we'll hope to see you next year.


  • We are allowing competitors to compete in three events, but it is your responsibility to make it work with the schedule. If they miss their round, they're out of luck.
  • Currently, the default entries will be that teams can go 3-deep (3 entries) per event.  If you need extra entries in specific events, please email me. Preference will be shown to schools who show NCHS the same courtesy. Otherwise, no extra entries will be granted.
  • Concessions will be open all day for breakfast and lunch. We will have vegetarian selections. (It will most likely be pizza and sandwiches again.)
  • Have your busses plan to drop students off in the bus circle by the football field (Porter Ave.), there is a circle turn-around for easy access. And drivers will be able to easily park in the lot.
  • Buses MUST pick you up at the Auditorium (Corner of West & Hillside).
  • Ensure that you are prepared for inclement weather. If your team is unable to attend due to weather conditions please let me know as soon as possible. You will still be responsible for the number of judges you were to supply based on your original entries. If you are unable to send your judges I will supply them at a fee of $125 for the day, regardless of number of rounds.
  • Wow, did it snow last year. please be prepared for snow.
