RULES FOR ENTRIES:

  • DOUBLE ENTRY

    • Double entry is allowed in ONE Wave A (Friday) event and ONE Wave B (Saturday) event.

    • DOUBLE ENTRY FORM: The participation of each student is limited to one “A” event and one “B” event as listed on the Regional Qualifying pre-registration form at a Regional Qualifying Meet. The student may participate in only one event at the State Tournament. The student and his/her coach must decide prior to the first round of the Regional Qualifying meet which event to enter at the State Tournament should the student qualify in both. This decision must be identified on the Double Entry Form (page 37) and submitted to the Regional Tournament Director PRIOR TO THE FIRST ROUND OF THE REGIONAL QUALIFYING MEET. (TOURNAMENT HANDBOOK pg. 28)

      • Students who double-enter will need to complete a doubling form prior to the beginning of the tournament. Though they can qualify in both events, they must pick ONE event to compete in at State.
        *Doubling forms will determine which event a student will compete in at State if that we student DOUBLE QUALIFIES at our Regional tournament.  If a student qualifies in one event and is an alternate in another, the doubling form does not apply, as they only qualified in one event. If alternates are pulled in to compete at State, that student would be skipped, as they already will be competing in the event they qualified in.

  • OO/Info manuscripts:

    • OO and Info are different events, and therefore students who double-enter in both events should be performing two distinct speeches.

    • Bring a copy of OO and Informative manuscripts with completed OO/Info manuscript forms (in “Files for Download” section) to final registration on site. This is different from previous years. I am not requiring an emailed copy of this. Please make sure to have this when you register on the day of the tournament.

  • Each team can enter up to FOUR entries per event.

    • An alternate can be submitted in events in which teams have filled their four spots.

      • This alternate will be entered onto the waitlist on SpeechWire.

      • Alternates will be pulled randomly into competition if there are drops after the registration deadline.

      • Alternates will compete under the school code of the competitor they replace--this means that they are not protected from competing against members of their own team in their event.

FEES:

  • $13 per student

Please send payment to:

CHSAA

Attn: Audra Cathy

14855 E. 2nd Ave.
Aurora, CO 80111

Ensure that CHSAA receives your payment by the Wednesday following our regional

tournament to avoid a late fee.

  • Drop Fee:  The drop fee for CHSAA Tournaments is equal to registration fee.  Drops noted on the regional director’s report will be invoiced to your school.

(Example:  A student drops out of an Individual event: a drop fee of $13.00 would need to be paid)

 

DEBATE TOPICS:

  • LD

Resolved: Plea bargaining ought to be abolished in the United States criminal justice system.

  • PF

Resolved: The United States should abolish the capital gains tax.

  • CX

Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially increase its funding and/or regulation of elementary and/or secondary education in the United States.

 

COACHES:

  • If you have not already done so, please complete the coach contact & job preference form linked here: https://goo.gl/forms/kXWLCyNGlOvQ1SdD2

 

JUDGES:

  • Please ensure that any judges you bring have taken the judge certification test on CHSAA’s website: http://www2.chsaa.org/coaches/test/login.asp

    • There will be computers on-site for judges to complete the test, but it helps us streamline the beginning of the tournament if they take it in advance.

    • They can take the test multiple times until they pass it with 100% to be certified.

    • Certified judges appear on a database linked on CHSAA’s website so we can confirm that they are knowledgeable judges.  You can see if your judges are certified here: http://www2.chsaa.org/coaches/testPass.asp?test=speech
