DIVISIONS, SPEAKING-PREP TIMES, STRIKES

 

IPDA Debate

We will offer IPDA debate in three divisions, novice, junior and senior.

IPDA debate will use rules for the debates as presented in the IPDA constitution, which can be found at http://www.ipdadebate.info/constitution—bylaws.html

We will use the 5-2-6-2-3-5-3 format with 20 to 25 minutes of preparation time (exact start time announced at topic announcement). Debaters will be presented with five resolutions; each debater will be allowed to strike two resolutions, thus leaving one resolution to be debated.

We will break the top half of debaters to elimination rounds, with ties broken on W/L, high/low speaker points, then total speaker points. Brackets will be broken in elimination rounds.

We will allow 1 or 2 strikes for IPDA debate.
