This Week's Edition:

1.  City Championships Information

For more information check out our website - www.debate.nyc.  There is a tab called "Tournaments" and a drop down menu that features the monthly tournaments, City Championships, State Championships and every other tournament we have.  Each school is invited to register up to two teams in each event and each division.  Which two teams is completely up to coach discretion - the only prequisitie is that both students have participated in at least two tournaments (with each other or different partners).  Basically City Championships should not be a student's first tournament!
