CX Debate State Registration Required In Tabroom.com
CX teams advancing to the state meet have been verified by results in the UIL Spring Meet Online System and schools submitted judge and certification forms via the UIL website last month. Because the tournament will be managed on Tabroom.com, each school must enter debaters and judges on the Tabroom website in order for your team and judges to receive schematics and ballots during the tournament. If you hired a judge, they must be linked to your school.
Detailed instructions on how to register are posted on the CX Debate State Tournament webpage. Deadline for entering is Wednesday, March 9.
Lincoln Douglas Debate Entry Clarification
In 2020-21, a permanent rule went into effect concerning the number of LD debaters schools may enter. The Constitution states a school may enter 3 individuals in its district meet. However, if there are fewer than a total of 8 LD debaters competing, each school with a full entry may enter a 4th debater at district. This recent rule change now parallels LD Debate with a similar provision that has existed for CX Debate. The Spring Meet Online System was adapted last year to allow for the potential fourth entry, should a district fall under this rule. For clarity, if your district has 8 or more debaters competing, you are allowed to enter 3 contestants.
Additionally, last year a temporary rule waiver was put into place to address the reduction in state qualifiers for CX Debate due to the pandemic, allowing CX district participants who did not advance to the CX State Meet to also enter LD Debate. CX advancement was not limited this year and this waiver is no longer in place. If a student competed in CX Debate at District 2022, they cannot enter LD Debate this year.
