FIFA MISSION.

LATEST NEWS.

TOURNAMENTS UP COMING.

The Florida Intercollegiate Forensics Association is devoted to maintaining, supporting, and administrating forensics activities in the state of Florida at the collegiate level.

FIFA offers individual events and debate. Within individual events, students have the opportunity to compete in varying styles of speech including platform, limited prepation, and oral interpretation. Within debate, FIFA allows students to compete individually through Lincoln-Douglas Debate and in teams through Parliamentary Debate. In addition, while FIFA does not host college policy debate many of our member schools do participate.

FIFA enables students to not only improve their speaking skills, but also develop a stronger understanding of the communication field as a whole.

We are back! For those that are frequent fliers on this site you probably know that it has been down/misbehaving lately. It has been successfully converted to a new format and revamped. Hopefully you appreciate the changes.

As the 2019-20 season grows closer it's important to offer congratulations on last season's state tournament. Thank you to Eric Hamm and Lynn University who were fantastic hosts. Congradulations to Southeastern University, champions of the Division 1 sweepstakes as well as the University of Central Florida, champions of Debate, Individual Events and Overall Sweepstakes. Finally, Christa Beriswill of UCF for claiming the Pentathlon title.

2018-19 was filled with exciting tournaments and growth. Hopefully 2019-20 will be the same. Can't wait to see everyone.
