* Tournaments that the whole team is expected to attend. They will have novice and varsity divisions OR everyone will compete in varsity.

** Tournaments with VERY limited entries - probably will be top 2 entries in policy, PFD, LD and top 4-6 overall speech. These tournaments are really designed to push our students who are looking to compete at nationals this year. Students wishing to attend these tournaments must show significant commitment since these tournaments typically have a higher cost per entry. We are offering them this year since a lot of the normal travel tournaments are off due to COVID.

# Tournaments where we will only bring our district entries. This is often 75% of the overall team in some capacity.

## These are tournaments that only a few students will qualify to attend. They require students to compete at the district tournaments and place well to qualify.
