RULES FOR ENTRIES:

  • 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--I will send you an email if your alternate is pulled in to compete as soon as it happens.
    • Alternates will be pulled randomly into competition if there are drops after the registration deadline.
    • Please enter names for your entries in SpeechWire; however, you may change names up until the first round has been scheduled.
  • DOUBLE ENTRY
    • NEW IN 2019:
      • Expanded double entry options for the Regional Qualifying Tournament: Students may enter a maximum of two events at the Regional Qualifying Tournament, but may choose to enter two “A wave” (Friday) events or two “B wave” (Saturday) events or one “A wave” event and one “B wave” event with the following restrictions:
        • Students entered in National or International Extemporaneous Speaking may not enter an additional A Wave (Friday) event, but may double enter in a B wave (Saturday) event. No student may enter both extemps.
        • Students in Public Forum, Cross Examination and Lincoln-Douglas Debate may not double enter in an additional B Wave (Saturday) event but may double enter in an A wave (Friday) event.  No student may enter more than one debate event.
        • Students must still complete the Double Entry form prior to their first round of competition.
    • DOUBLE ENTRY FORM: The participation of each student is limited to a maximum of two events at the Regional Qualifying tournament. 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 38) and submitted to the Regional Tournament Director PRIOR TO THE FIRST ROUND OF THE REGIONAL QUALIFYING MEET. (TOURNAMENT HANDBOOK pg. 38)
      • 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 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 in the event that the already-qualified student is an alternate in, that student would be skipped, as they will already be competing at State 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.
    • You will enter topics on SpeechWire as part of the online registration process.
    • Bring a copy of OO and Informative manuscripts with completed OO/Info manuscript forms (in “Files for Download” section) to final registration on site.
  • INTERP:
    • You’ll need to enter titles and authors of ALL interp selections into SpeechWire as part of the online registration process.
    • HAVE ALL ORIGINAL SOURCES FOR ALL INTERP PIECES ON SITE AT THE TOURNAMENT! Have them on hand--if a piece's validity is questioned, it is in your student's best interest to have it with you so that we can confirm that it meets CHSAA rules.

FEES:

  • $13 per student

Please send payment to:

  • Drop Fee:  The drop fee for CHSAA Tournaments is equal to the registration fee.  Drops made after Friday, February 15, 2019, 3:30 PM MST, will incur a drop fee.  Drops noted on the regional director’s report will be invoiced to your school by CHSAA.
    (Example:  An individual event drop is made after the registration deadline: a drop fee of $13.00 would need to be paid, in addition to the entry fee of $13.00)

COACHES:


JUDGES:

  • Judges at regionals should have judged at least once during the season.
  • 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
