Stoa tournaments are open to participants from across the country.

The National Stoa Organization hosts only one tournament per year, the National Invitational Tournament of Champions (NITOC). During the tournament season  “Stoa tournaments” are run by local tournament administrators. These tournaments attract attendees both locally and from around the country. These tournaments utilize Stoa event rules, ballots, tournament aids, orientation slides, and other resources. To receive a notification when tournaments are added to this calendar, subscribe to Stoalert, a service provided by one of our wonderful Stoa alumni for only $15 a year.

Tournaments meeting the Stoa Minimum Tournament Standards (download with red button below) may be posted to the Stoa Calendar and to Speechranks. Participation may help students earn an invitation to NITOC. Tournaments will need to be completed by May 1st with result uploaded to Speechranks immediately thereafter in order to be considered for NITOC.

If this is your first time to host a Stoa tournament, we would love to provide help and encouragement:  Training & Development Committee.
