Entry Fees

We have lowered our registration fees!

Because of university policy, we are unable to provide parent judge food or student snacks. So, while other fine Stoa venues are able to offer tantalizing tournament treats...at the Concordia Challenge you'll get a nice piece of Ghirardelli chocolate. Please consider using your tournament fee savings to purchase meal tickets and also bring your own snacks!

Team Policy Debate: $35 per person
Lincoln Douglas Debate: $35 per person
Parliamentary Debate: $25 per person
Speech Individual Events: $25 for your first event; $15 per event for each additional, up to eight events maximum.

Payment

Registration is not complete until your fees have been paid. If you choose to use PayPal, a small processing fee will be added to cover PayPal fees. You may instead send a check payable to 'AEA Speech and Debate' to the following address:

Concordia Challenge
c/o Susan Hasegawa
12622 Palomar St.
Garden Grove, CA 92845

Please Note: If you plan to compete in Team Policy Debate or Parli Debate or Duo Interpretation, your partner must also be registered in order to compete as a team. Having one partner sign up does NOT hold a space or count as registration for the other partner.

Deadlines

  • Please note that after midnight February 27th, you will be charged a Drop Fee of $15 for each dropped event. This Drop Fee* is payable by Paypal prior to the tournament (see tab How to Log Back In). This must be paid in order to compete in your other events.

Late Registration

Depending on event capacity, late registrations or changes may be allowed after close of registration subject to a $20 late registration fee.

*Drop Fees
A Drop Fee is an additional charge you need to pay if you drop (cancel out of) an event after the specified date. This fee applies if you are still competing at the tournament in other events. If you withdraw completely from the tournament, you will lose your entire registration fee, but you will not be charged additional drop fees. If you are withdrawing from the tournament or dropping an event after registration closes, please let the tournament registrar know ASAP. Please don’t wait until the day of the tournament to let the tournament staff know that you are dropping an event.

Drop Fees are standard practice at many tournaments. Drop Fees are utilized to discourage late drops to events as those drops negatively impact the tournament in a number of ways.
