State Tournament Deadline Is Approaching!!

Coaches of Senior Debate and Speech Teams,

Entries for the State Debate and the State Senior High Speech tournaments must be submitted by 5:00 PM Friday, February 23rd.  Registration deadlines are firm.  Please understand that only name changes should occur after this deadline.  Any drops reported after the deadline will be subject to the fees outlined in the handbook.  All fees must be paid at registration, including any applicable drop fees, for teams to be allowed to compete. The handbook indicates a “final deadline” as the “penultimate day” before the tournament.  As the state debate tournament begins on Thursday, March 8, the “final deadline” will be 12:00 AM on Tuesday, March 6.  This deadline will be the same for senior speech and the state debate tournaments.

State Debate and Speech Tournament Fee Schedule:

Drops before the Final Deadline but after the initial registration deadline – entry fees plus $10.
Drops after the Final Deadline but before on-site registration—entry fees plus $25
​​Drops during on-site registration—entry fees plus $50
​​Judge drops after registration deadline–$65 per day of obligation dropped plus $100 drop fee. If the judge drop brings the school’s judge coverage below its obligation AND no​​​ hired judges are available to cover the slot, the school’s entry may be reduced.

Parking For ALL STATE TOURNAMENTS

Parking Information for ALL STATE TOURNAMENTS:

BUS TRANSPORTATION:
Every day: Debate / Senior Speech / Junior Speech
Buses should drop off students at Wildcat Plaza, which is a drop-off loop on the Avenue of Champions (big wildcat statue, across the street from Memorial Coliseum, near student center and art museum) for all days and all tournaments. This is by far the best place to drop off and pick up students. There is no street number for this loop. The best Google Map search is just for Memorial Coliseum on Avenue of Champions. The loop is literally on the opposite side of the avenue from the front doors of Memorial.

BUS PARKING:
Thursday of state debate, Friday of both state speech tournaments:
After dropping off students, buses should go to the Purple lot near Kroger Field. This is on Wildcat Court behind the Softball Stadium / Soccer Field.
Saturday of both state speech tournaments:
Buses can park closer in the C9 lot: 110 Scott Street.

CARS:
Every day: Debate/Senior Speech/Junior Speech
Cars can park in Parking Structure 5 between Upper and Limestone. 574 S. Upper Street.
This structure is a pay by the hour structure on weekdays, free on Saturdays.
The cost of parking is $2.00 per hour with a $16.00 per exit maximum on weekdays.

Regionals This Weekend

Coaches,

Please be on the lookout for emails from your regional managers with information and procedures for the upcoming regional tournaments on Saturday.  Please pay careful attention to any instructions regarding student exemptions for the State tournament in March.  Here are a few quick-hitting reminders:

  1.  Your regional roster and your state roster DO NOT have to include the same students or even the same events.
  2. Your state roster cannot be LARGER than your regional entry.  So if you have 20 entries at regionals, you will have a maximum of 20 entries at state.  You may distribute those 20 entries in any events and to any eligible students as you see fit.
  3. Students are eligible for state if they have attended at least two KHSSL sanctioned invitationals as vouched for by their coach OR attend regionals.
  4. If you need an exemption for state participation based on #3 above, be sure you have emailed that need to the KHSSL Board chairman, Daniel Hamm at daniel.hamm@ahsrockets.org, and that you have copied the email to your regional manager.  Check with your region board representative if you are not certain who the regional manager is.
  5. Checks for entries should be made out to KHSSL.  Payments for drops will be made to the host school of the tournament.  Please bring cash or checks to pay for any drops of students or judges.

Information regarding specifics for the state tournaments will be coming soon.  Best of luck to all teams and competitors this weekend!!
