Just as iron sharpens iron, we believe that participating in competitve tournaments propels students to excel in their speaking abilities. Tournaments are where parents see the vision for speech & debate come to life and students become excited about the fruits of their labors.  Knowing this, we highly recommend students participate in tournaments, and require students to compete in at least two during the season. Along with our club and the Tucson club, Kairos, there will be 3-4 local tournaments.

  • Coyote Kick-Off (Kairos) – November 4-5,2016
  • Cactus Clash (MHSD) - November 18-19, 2016
  • Camelback Classic (MHSD) – March 16-18, 2017

There are numerous tournaments to choose from throughout the season. The Stoa website calendar provides information on all tournaments in the United States.
