The Choate Rosemary Hall Debate Team cordially invites you to the Choate Invitational Tournament on January 21, 2018. In both the novice and advanced division, the event will feature three rounds of parliamentary extemporaneous debate with straight resolutions.

Initial registration is limited to 3 four-person teams per school. Each school must register at least one team in both the novice and advanced divisions and must provide one judge per four-person team. Choate will be unable to supply judges. Our tournament will not have timers, so encourage your debaters to bring a self timing mechanism.

Registration fees are $75 per four-person team and $15 per observer. To register, please RSVP to Jack Miley at by December 22, indicating how many observers and teams (novice/advanced) you plan to bring. For further inquiries, email Hannah Paridis at
