We expect that a number of tournaments will be offered in a virtual format over the course of the next year. Hosting tournaments is inherently difficult, but transitioning them online can be even more so, due to the novelty of the format and technology involved.
One priority of the DSDI is to help tournaments successfully host online events. This will be executed through the production of manuals, how-to videos, FAQs, webinars, and offers of direct administrative support, in setting up and running of tournaments.
As the knowledge and ability to host online tournaments increases, we look forward to finding opportunities for online tournaments to expand speech and debate and improve the sustainability of our activity.
