2010 NDCA Championships

Recommended Posts

The joy of tournaments website is now open for entries.

http://www.joyoftournaments.com/dc/ndca/register.asp

 

Tournament participants will be determined using the following qualification procedures:

 

Policy debate and public forum debate competition is considered a team activity. A team is comprised of two individuals from the same degree granting institution.

 

Debaters registering for the NDCA Championships will automatically be placed on a waiting list until they achieve qualifying status, as detailed below.

 

The Public Forum division of the NDCA Championships will accept up to sixty teams. Any team that has reached elimination rounds in varsity competition will be eligible to enter the tournament. Schools may enter up to four teams and put additional teams on the waiting list. After March 15 teams will be released from the waiting list until the tournament is full.

Once a policy team or LD'r is on the waiting list the tournament director will review their points earned using the NDCA points database.

You can view your debaters points earned in preliminary competition so far this year by going to http://ndca.joyoftournaments.com/.

Policy teams and LD'rs will be released off the waiting list immediately if they have earned at least 300 points and if they apply prior to March 15 and until 75 teams have been admitted to the tournament. The application deadline is April 1. On April 1 an additional 53 entries in each event will be released from the waiting list even if some of those applicants don’t have 300 points. Applications will be accepted, regardless of point total, after April 1 until there is 128 entries in each event or until the Monday preceding the start of the tournament whichever comes first. The list entries will be made publicly available.

 

Virtually any tournament can count toward qualification. If there is a tournament not included in your students points earned so far this year please contact NDCA Championships tournament director, Tim Mahoney, at pacedebate@aol.com

 

 

 

A policy team may apply even if they haven’t debated together previously or if they haven’t debated at five tournaments together. In this instance each individuals best five tournaments regardless of partner are counted, then divided by two, and then the two individual scores are added together to create the team point total.

 

The policy team with the highest point total using this qualification system that attends the NDCA Championships will be awarded The David P. Baker Award for Season Long Excellence. To be considered for this award a team must have debated together at all five tournaments used for qualification.

 

 

The Lincoln-Douglas debater with the highest point total using the qualification system that attends the NDCA Championships will be awarded The Patricia Bailey and Marilee Dukes Cup for Season Long Excellence.

 

 

 

If you have any questions feel free to email me.

 

Thanks,

Right-if you actually go to the website where you can check how many points you have, those tournaments I listed are the only ones that, as of now count toward NDCA.

Almost any open varsity tournament counts. The reason more tournaments don't show up is because the tournament directors haven't sent in their data. If you are trying to qualify you can just send me your records and I'll figure out your points manually.
