The path toward online competition is underway with practice opportunities! We have learned a lot thus far during our practice opportunities, resolved several technical bugs, and continue to be committed to providing an excellent experience for all of our participants. Below you will find information about upcoming practice opportunities.
An important note for parents:
For all of the practice events, please be sure you have listed yourself as a participating parent on Step 4 of the registration process in order to receive reminder emails as well as notifications during the event. Also ensure that you have a text-enabled cell phone listed on your NCFCA account, if possible.
For those who have not yet registered for a practice event or for those who experienced significant technical difficulties, registration has been reopened for a limited number of spaces for the December 29 and December 30 practice opportunities. Registration will close on December 23 at 5:00pm CT and we will not be able to accommodate any late registrations. Please note: If your registration shows waitlisted when you sign up, you need to register for another date.
We have also added two additional practice opportunities, both on January 4, 2021! Registration will close December 31 at 5:00pm CT. Late registrations cannot be accommodated.
The January 4th “Morning” opportunity will offer announcements at 8:30am CT, debate at 9:00am CT, and speech (Apologetics, Digital Presentation, Duo, Humorous, and Informative) at 11:30am CT.
The January 4th “Afternoon” will offer announcements at 4:30pm CT, speech (Biblical Thematic, Extemporaneous, Impromptu, Open, and Persuasive) at 5:00pm CT, and debate at 7:30pm CT.
Are you a Digital Presentation competitor? If so, we’d love to have your help! On Monday, December 28 we will run an additional practice round just for Digital Presentation in order to test with our tech team. Announcements will begin at 6:30pm CT and the round will take place at 7:00pm CT. You must pre-register by December 28 at noon CT. Parents are welcome, but are not required to participate.
