Hello, my name is Jasmin, I'm a senior in high school and I'd like some advice. This is my second year of competition in the NCFCA; since this is my final year before graduation and there aren't many tournaments in my area, I would love to perform my speeches in some Stoa tournaments as well. So I have 3 questions.

1. To compete in Stoa, do you only have to pay a membership fee for the year as a prerequisite to sign up for a tournament?
2. I'm not part of a Stoa club; is that required or preferable to compete?
3. In Stoa you can compete at any preliminary tournament in the country, right? In NCFCA you can only compete in your 'region'.

Thank you so much! I appreciate your help. :D

In Christ,

Hi Jasmin! I'd love to see your speeches--where are you thinking of competing? :) In answer to your questions:

1. Yep.
2. Not required; you'll register as an independent. Most people compete in clubs, and I can attest that the extra feedback is extraordinarily helpful. :)
3. Yep. All Stoa tournaments are equivalent to NCFCA "Opens" in that respect, except that individual clubs host them. The national leadership only hosts NITOC.
