NPTE 2021 Update

NPTE 2021 Update

  1. The 2021 NPTE will be virtual; date and further details TBA.

  2. We’re reducing registration fees to $150 per team given the lower operating costs of an online tournament.

  3. We will follow the NPDA Executive Council’s guidelines for online debate regarding partner communication via chat applications, flowing on computers, etc.

  4. We will monitor point accumulation as the season progresses and may make adjustments to the qualification process as needed. The trend of online tournaments seems to be towards fewer, hopefully larger tournaments, which may result in fewer points for teams that usually attend more regional tournaments. As always, our goal is to ensure that a reasonable number of teams can qualify while still maintaining our high standard of excellence.

Our best wishes to everyone. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there’s anything we can do for you/yours. Take care!
