Ocelot Invitational


Dear coaches,


You are cordially invited to the Ocelot Invitational on Saturday, February 8th at Strive Prep - SMART Academy. This is a speech only tournament! If you are looking for the full tournament we host, the “SMART Academy Invitational” it is on November 23rd this year! This tournament will take the same format as the “STRIVE Prep Speech Showdown” that we co-hosted with our sister school, Strive Prep - RISE, earlier in the season! 


Tournament Highlights:

-A later registration time! Enjoy that extra hour of sleep, especially in February! 

-FOUR prelim rounds as your team prepares for the Qualifiers in the weeks ahead! 

-No waving! Finals will start at 3pm! 

-The chance for students to double/triple enter! The other tournament that weekend hasn’t traditionally allowed that! 


Events: HI, DI, POI, Poetry, Duo, INF, OO, Extemp

→ Extempers will be given the choice of IX or DX topics before draw each round. 



8:00-8:30am: Registration

9:00am: Round 1

10:30am: Round 2

Noon: Round 3

1:30pm: Round 4

3:00pm: Finals

4:30pm: Awards


Doubling/Tripling: Due to time, Extempers may only double enter, not triple enter.  All other students may triple enter. 


Judges: We will be doing judges slightly differently, so please read carefully:

1. All schools are asked to bring 1 judge for every 8 entries. There is a $20 fee for every uncovered judge (note: NOT uncovered entry)

2. We ask that all schools register their judges ahead of time on Speechwire. This allows us to pair judges rounds ahead of time.

3. Because we can pair judges ahead of time, we will be giving teams their judges “dance cards” at registration. This means your judges will know at the beginning of the tournament when they are judging.

4. We will pay the judges you bring $10 a round. Just please guarantee they come!


Fees and Payment:

The entry fee will be $10 per student, per event ($20 per Duo).

Please make checks payable to “STRIVE Prep SMART” and send them to 3201 W. Arizona Ave. Denver, CO 80219ATTN: SMART/Grant Thomas



This tournament will be hosted at Strive Prep - SMART Academy
