The tournament is open to all debaters debating at high school level, representing their school, debate organization or nation. Teams can have 3 – 5 debaters. We strongly encourage each team to register at least one judge, although we are imposing n-1 judge rule.
As we expect teams from all over the world we are planning to have 2 divisions for 6 pre-elimination rounds on Saturday and Sunday – March 6 and 7, octofinals (and double octos if needed) on Monday, the 8th, quarterfinals on the 9th, semifinals and finals on Wednesday, the 10th. Briefings – technical instructions, judges, debaters briefing will happen on Friday, March 5th. The more detailed schedule follows after registration closes.
We will open registration on December 1st and close it on January 15th. Teams secure their spots after we receive the registration fee paid. The registration fee will be 20 EUR per debater. In case more teams register as we can handle, we reserve the right to limit the number of teams per institution.
We will announce the registration link, CA team and some other information at the end of November. If you have any additional questions, please, feel free to ask at the tournament Facebook page or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
