    Texas Teams?

    Just wondering about the thoughts on these after Grapevine and based off of last year: 1. Top 10 Texas teams in order? 2. Best Texas senior team? 3. Best Texas junior team? 4. Best Texas sophomore team?
  2. Hello fellow Texas debaters! This is my first time to a debate camp, and I was wondering if anyone else was going to UTNIF in Austin. How did you find it last year? Best/Worst things about it? Thank you! Respectfully, JM
  3. I live in a very traditional portion of West Texas where no one accepts progressive forms of debate. We run simple K's for "more progressive" judges and really explain them and impact them out but they never seems to get it. In fact, we lost a very important round because the judges didn't seem to understand a basic Cap K. How can we try to make it so judges understand what we're saying and maybe make our circuit more progressive?
  4. heyyo im about to start deciding which camp i want to go to next summer (if you couldnt tell by the title) and im getting conflicting reccomendations for a lil background, i do national circuit LD (aka p much one person CX if you arent familiar with it) and cx sometimes (not on the nat circ tho) not to toot my own horn or anything but i consider myself a pretty decent k debater?? i almost exclusively only run kritkal/performance affs and the k literally every round (and win off the k, btw) i wanna go to a cx camp rather than an ld camp so i can improve my skills with tha k, b/c if i wanna achieve my LD nat circ goals then i just need to improve my technical skills rather than topic-oriented skills soooooooooooo i was either planning on going to UTNIF for the 2 week skills intensive, or UNT for the K lab* *(assuming in the off chance ill get into K lab (also, i literally know nothing abt UNT so if anyone could educate me on like the likelihood of me being/getting into/how to get into K lab id be greatly appreciative) but the only conflict i have here is the fact i probably wont get into a good lab - ive obviously done CX before (lolz) but my main focus is LD?? (and obvi the LD that i do is literally just policy but) so i feel like i probably wont get into K lab or a good lab at all based on the fact that i most likely have less CX round experience than others (and more LD rounds) plz help
  5. This year I've only competed at two tournaments, and while I won both of them, they were both locals. I will be doing policy at NFL districts in April, and I'm in a pretty progressive area of Texas. Other than open evidence and a unique Aff, I don't have any prep. Between now and then I want to establish a good, regular work ethic that'll get me to competition level. I will be along side schools like Greenhill. Not easy competition. So I have a few requests. 1. Could I get some recommended AFFs I should write case NEGs for? 2. What is the best way to organize evidence (really, everything)? 3. What are the best sources to consistently get good evidence? Thank y'all so much in advance.
  6. What was the experience like at ETBU compared to other camps?
  7. What is the typical day like at the 3 week skills intensive camp at UTINF and how is time divided between class and free-time? Was this camp a good experience?
  8. Hello, I'm Jonathan Morales, a policy debater at Churchill High School in San Antonio, Texas. We're having the Churchill Classic Debate Tournament January 9-10 and it would be awesome if some of y'all want to judge! If you're available to judge both days, all the rounds, we're paying $150, but if you can't do them all, we can pay you per round too! You can sign up and enter info here: http://goo.gl/XQcFp3 . If you have any questions, you can email Ms. Tripe, our director of debate (htripe@neisd.net). Hope to see you there!!!
  9. Thought it would be nice to have restart texas teams discussion: What are your opinions on the results of the U.T. tournament? Any new competition? Any upsets? Rankings of top 10?
  10. Long story short, my partner failed his french class with a 0 because he didn't do any work and now he's not eligible for Texas TFA state competition. I'm considering to maverick there and I'm wondering if there are any tricks and tips on mavericking. I'm also wondering if mavericking is an option or not for Texas TFA state because it didn't specify on the website.
  11. I'm currently debating in a more progressive area of Texas and my family is thinking of moving to Oregon. Can anyone give me a comprehensive breakdown of the circuit in that state?
  12. heyyo im looking for a private coach! i dont exactly need one for policy debate per say - but LD. (keep in mind tho, the LD that i do is literally one person policy) i love the K, and performance, and literally anything critical - so if you are down with the K and/or have substantial experience with the K, that would be superb i would really like to get out there on the circuit next year, and ill probably be travelling independently so i can have more opportunities for #datbid (my school only goes to like 2 bid tournaments a year) im fairly successful for my first year on the circuit, having a relatively good record @ St Marx (rly hard tournament for LD), and breaking @ UT and making it to doubles so like im willing to do whatever work needed i just need someone familiar with the circuit/progressive db8/kritikal argumentation (which i understand that this is a policy forum and the likelihood of someone familiar with nat circuit LD is low but one can hope!) id probably start needing one at the beginning of the upcoming school year (per my parents' words) you dont necessarily have to be local, like i probably wont ask you to travel (unless i get that #dank #toc #bid) i just need someone to help like in the instance of if im at a big tournament some weekend and need prep-outs via text or whatever (if you dont live in texas), and like casing help and whatever, u know like what private coaches do b4 anyone gets weirded out that its LD or w/e, everything thats in policy is in LD (at least, circuit LD) (aka if youre a college policy debater then u would still be perfectly fine coaching me) (this is proven from experience) if yr interested or can at least direct me in the way of someone that would be PLZ comment and ill PM you !!!!!!!
