The joy of tournaments website is now open for entries. 
Tournament participants will be  determined using the following 
qualification procedures: 
Policy  debate and public forum debate competition is considered a team 
activity. A team  is comprised of two individuals from the same degree granting 
Debaters  registering for the NDCA Championships will automatically be 
placed on a waiting  list until they achieve qualifying status, as detailed 
The Public Forum division of  the NDCA Championships will accept up to 
sixty teams. Any team that has reached  elimination rounds in varsity 
competition will be eligible to enter the  tournament. Schools may enter up to four 
teams and put additional teams on the  waiting list. After March 15 teams will 
be released from the waiting list until  the tournament is full. 

Once a  policy team or LD'r is on the waiting list the tournament director 
will review  their points earned using the NDCA points database.
You can  view your debaters points earned in preliminary competition so far 
this year by  going to http://ndca.joyoftournaments.com/. 

Policy  teams and LD'rs will be released off the waiting list immediately 
if they have  earned at least 300 points and if they apply prior to March 15 
and until 75  teams have been admitted to the tournament. The application 
deadline is April 1.  On April 1 an additional 53 entries in each event will

have 300 points.  Applications will be accepted, regardless of point total, 
after April 1 until  there is 128 entries in each event or until the Monday 
preceding the start of  the tournament whichever comes first. The list entries
