    1. If running your tournament on Speechwire, go ahead and ORDER your tournament. See the comprehensive Speechwire guide to step by step instructions and/or tutorial video.
  3. All coaches, start gathering your teams together! Be sure to get team members to fill out the MLFA Code of Conduct and Email Release Waiver, both of which are posted to the bottom of the Coaches’ page.
    1. As you gather your teams, start asking school parents, co-workers, and friends if they are willing to serve as a judge.
