Resolved: Unilateral military force by the United States is justified to prevent nuclear proliferation.
There is no rule as to when competitors must move to Varsity during the current year; it is at the discretion of the coach. However, most students who have already competed this season are likely ready to compete at the Varsity level.
Recommendation: Try novice the for your first tournament, then dive into varsity after that.
To letter in speech and debate for LCHS you must compete as varsity in 3 separate tournaments.
