General Tournament FAQs:

Q: What are the different rounds/patterns?
A: Patterns just mean that students will compete in different events at different times. It allows for a tournament to host more events. Rounds mean that students will be performing the SAME SPEECH three different times, for different judges. Scores are averaged across rounds to determine final placings.

Q: How many events can I sign up for?
A: You can double enter in speech, which means you can do two events in each pattern, which means you can do 6 events total.

Q: What if I have something in the morning/afternoon the day of the tournament?
A: This is an all day event, so you’ll have to be there the whole day.

Q: Will there be practice in class? And which tournaments I should sign up for?
A: Check with your Coach in class.
