“NITC” stands for the NITOC Invitational Tournament of Champions. We invite all Team-Policy and Lincoln-Douglas debate qualifiers to this robust event. Vance Trefethen and Matthew Erickson are heading up our team of coaches to provide for you the best training possible leading up to your big week of competition.

NITC is the best opportunity you have for Nationals competition. It’s an additional expense to your already-costly trail to NITOC, but we pull in the best coaching we can muster for an experience that brings results.

Let’s list the benefits:

  1. More Perspective. Debaters from across the country gather at NITC. You’ll get to know the cases and styles of competitors you likely never met yet.
  2. More Practice. We like to say that NITC debaters enter Round 3 the next week because they get two scrimmage rounds at camp. Everyone else starts off with Round 1.
  3. Get Back to Snuff. It will have likely been over a month since your last competition. You’re rusty…and so is everyone else coming to NITOC. NITC debaters bring it together in two days to get back in their excellence groove.
  4. Outstanding Coaching. We pay for the best coaches we can gather for an outstanding two days of prepping for the nationals tournament. Take a look at our staff…these coaches are phenomenal!
  5. Flow Sharing. NITC members join a “secret society” that exchanges flows from the year, sharing cases that have been captured in other states and regions.
  6. Blue/Red Book Final Installments. A collection of briefs specifically prepared by members of the NITC Society and many of its coaches, for the NITC eyes only. This is perhaps the most valuable aspect of being a member.
  7. Community of Champions. The NITC group is a no-nonsense, focused group of competitors. If you’re serious about making an impact at NITOC, you’ll be at NITC 2016.

Check out the registration page for a list of testimonials and our record for maximizing your championship possibilities. Many, many national champions have come straight from our camp—and they credit NITC as what brought them to the top.

That can be you this year! Register for NITC today.
