Mock Tournament 

An MLFA sponsored mock tournament is now open for registration. It is for coaches and judges. Use a different personal email address, add you and your colleagues to your team roster, register yourself and fellow coaches in any categories you wish, schedule judges, and join the fun at 10:00 AM January 30th. No performing, just witty banter and an opportunity to get the students’ point of view.

Judges’ Training

Don’t forget, every judge on your team – or potential judge, MUST attend a training and pass the test. They should also watch the Speechwire tutorial about the ballots and what to expect. Remember, everyone logs into live.speechwire.com to compete in a tournament. Everything they need to know in life including the judge training schedule is on the virtual web site link for judges.
