The Choate Rosemary Hall Debate Team cordially invites you to the Choate Invitational Debate Tournament on January 7, 2024. In both the novice and advanced division, the event will feature three rounds of parliamentary extemporaneous debate with straight resolutions (full rules can be found here). Because we are a world qualifier, we will give priority to league members and keep a running list of additional schools who are interested. If we have enough space, these schools will be contacted and invited to attend the tournament.

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 provide one judge per four-person team. In the advanced division, we ask that you provide an adult judge. Choate will be unable to supply judges. We also will not have timers or Speakers, so debaters and judges will need to fulfill both of these roles.

To register, please RSVP to Katherine Chong ’25 at indicating how many teams (novice/advanced) you plan to bring, as well as providing the names of all debaters and judges. If you have additional questions, please reach out to Kyra Jenney at The deadline for registration is December 15th.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the tournament!
