Do you have new judges? Do you have parents whom you want to turn into judges? Do your judges need some refreshers? There are a few judge trainings available over the next month or so.
At the ASDCA convention, on September 9th at Brophy, there will be 2 trainings, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Register your judges for the trainings at www.joyoftournaments.com/az.
At the SWSDI Novice Tournament, held at Hamilton HS on September 23, there will be a judge training, and then opportunities for the new judges to practice their skills in a low-stress environment.
In addition, Meg Howell at Mountain View will host a judge training night. Information will be posted here as soon as it is available.
Any other opportunities for judge training will be posted on this page. Well-prepared judges make tournaments so much more rewarding for our competitors.
New Speech and Debate coaches:
The New Coaches Workshop will be held at Mountain View High School on Saturday, August 19th. Register for the workshop by contacting NSDA District Chair Meg Howell-Haymaker at email@example.com.
ASDCA Treasurer Mr. Wolnisty and McClintock coach Mr. Glover took their annual road trip to Nationals this year. As always, some trophies hitched a ride back to Phoenix with them. Where did the trophies go this year?
