Directions to Choate Rosemary Hall

The Choate Rosemary Hall Debate Team cordially invites you to the Choate Invitational Tournament on January 19, 2020. In both the novice and advanced division, the event will feature three rounds of parliamentary extemporaneous debate with straight resolutions. 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 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 $20 per observer. To register, please RSVP to Kenadi Waymire at by December 20, indicating how many observers and teams (novice/advanced) you plan to bring. For further inquiries, email Kyra Jenney at or Jack Miley at

On the morning of the tournament, please call our team adviser, Neil Shimmield, at (203) 843-7743 between 8 AM and 10 AM to let us know you are on your way.
