We wanted to take a moment to remind people about some exciting changes for the upcoming season.
- First, beginning November 1st, novices will be allowed to use one counterplan (which will be provided in the novice packet) as part of their negative strategy. This counterplan will be made available on the WDCA website.
- Second, there will be a novice switch sides division at the State Tournament in January.
We believe these changes will enhance novice policy debate and help ease the transition from novice to varsity for all policy debaters.
