AMERICAN FORENSICS ASSOCIATION'S DISTRICT VII NIET QUALIFYING

TOURNAMENT SWING 2019

 

Where: James Madison University, Harrisonburg VA

When:  Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, March 1st-March 3rd, 2019

 

What:  

Tournament Flight Information for both tournaments

There will be two preliminary rounds and finals of:

            Group A: Extemp, Persuasive, Program Oral Interp, Duo Interp, Poetry, and Informative

            Group B: Impromptu, Dramatic, After Dinner, Comm Analysis, and Prose

 

Fees: For both tournaments, the fees are $8.00 per slot.  One judge is required for each 6 slots.  Judges may be hired for $10.00 per uncovered slot.  Please make every effort to cover your entry.  Due to the nature of the Swing Tournament, drop fees will be at a minimum in order to assure proper entries at the second half of the swing/District Qualifying Tournament.  There is a $50.00 District Dues fee for those schools that have yet to register with the district and wish to join the AFA.  Schools competing in the District Tournament must pay the AFA District Dues fee regardless of their intent to compete at the AFA-NIET.  All schools planning on attending the AFA-NIET must have an AFA Membership affiliated with the school/team – this can be an organizational membership, a coach’s membership, or a student membership which should be demonstrable at registration (this is separate and distinct from the AFA District membership.

 

Entry Stipulations for the District Qualifying Tournament Only:

 

No student may enter any event in which she/he has qualified at large to compete in the AFA-NIET.  Entries should be double-checked before submission to ensure that they do not violate this rule (plus it will be time to submit those at-large qualifications to the chair anyway).

 

Each student may enter a maximum of 6 events with no more than 2 in each pattern (see groups listed above).  No exceptions can be made, and 2 duos count as 2 events for this ruling.

 

All qualifying contestants must be in a position at the District VII Tournament to indicate whether or not they will be attending the AFA-NIET in Alabama this April.  District qualifications are awarded to the top 3 finishers in events with a total participation of 1 - 30 students, the top 4 with 31 - 40, the top 5 with 41 - 50, and the top 6 with 51 - 60.  Events with 51 or more contestants will break to a semi-final round before going to finals.

 

All schools must provide a Student Verification Form (available on the AFA-NIET website), as well as an At-Large Qualification Reporting Form (also available on the AFA-NIET website) for each student who plans on attending the AFA-NIET in Tuscaloosa, AL – both of these forms must be in the hands of the District Chair no later than registration on February 27th, 2019.

 

 

Awards for the District Qualifying Tournament:  Each event will have a minimum of 6 finalists (entries allowing).  Awards will be presented to all finalists in every event.  In addition, awards will be provided for the top 3 team sweepstakes scores.  Team sweepstakes will be based on final rounds only with 6 points awarded for each 1st, 5 for each 2nd, etc.

 

The Lucky Seven half of the swing will use the same procedures and point system for awards, but will not limit entry to five competitors per event. However, students may only enter three events per pattern. In addition to recognizing all finalists and the top five teams in sweepstakes, the Lucky Seven tournament will recognize the top three speakers at the tournament.

Title IX Training

All competitors, coaches, and judges representing your team at the AFA-NIET Tournament must complete Title IX training. If training is not completed by the District tournament, arrangements will be made before entering the AFA-NIET with the oversight of the District Chair.

 

As always, we are looking forward to a great turnout at this year's Districts!  Please let other schools in our district know about the tournament – joining the district at registration is acceptable.  Schools that are normally NFA-only are also encouraged to attend; it's a qualifier under NFA guidelines as well.  See you in March.
