First Tournament Feedback
The season is off to a great start!
Congratulations to all students who competed/judged at the Houston County tournament on September 14. The season is off to a great start, and your combined efforts as a team—no matter how many rounds you won or lost—earned our third consecutive sweepstakes win at this particular tournament. More than half of you were competing in your first high school tournament, and that kind of success is incredible!
One of the most important aspects of the season opener is that it is, beyond all else, a learning experience. Some of you learned that you might need a refresher on certain elements of debate, or that you might have to work a little harder in the varsity division to see the same results you saw last year as a novice. Some of you may have realized that while you love the speech and debate community, you might feel like the event you initially chose is not the best fit for you, and you might like to try something different.
This form is intended to collect feedback and give you a private way to share concerns and feedback on the tournament and your participation in CHS Speech and Debate. I know sometimes it’s hard to get an opportunity to talk one-on-one and work through problems when the team is so big, but I will read all submissions to this form and follow up with you individually. This form is NOT just for new students - JV/Varsity competitors are also encouraged to use it to share concerns so that I can make plans for practices to be the most effective possible.
