Ziggy Online Debate


Ziggy Online Debate is an online debate practice tournament (run by veteran NCFCA and Stoa debater Isaac Sommers) that allows debaters from all across the nation to compete and debate online using the NCFCA or Stoa TP and LD resolutions (competitors from each league, of course, will only debate competitors from their own league). We’ve had hundreds of participants in Ziggy over the last several years, and we’re excited to announce we are expanding Ziggy to the Spring (minimum of 12 participants per form of debate required)!

Ziggy Online Debate provides 10 online rounds in the Fall. Ziggy will start the first week of October (October 1, 2017) and go through the week of December 10, 2017.

In the Spring, Ziggy will have 8 online rounds from mid January 2018 to mid April 2018.

After Round 4, debaters will be power-matched against other debaters with similar records. At the end of the debates, results will be available, and final placements of the top 40% (based on win/loss records, speaker points, and completion of rounds) and all winning records will be published.

You can sign up for Ziggy at any time, be it Early Signup, or signing up during the competition.

Early Signup for Ziggy in the Fall 2017 is $25 (late signup is $30)

Signup for Ziggy in the Spring 2018 is $20.

Sign up before 12 PM CST on Sunday to make it into the next round!
