Florida Intercollegiate Forensics Association




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.

Update 12/1/21

FIFA is back in 2021! Sort of? Tournaments are still mostly online, we haven't seen each other in almost two years and a lot has changed. So here's the run down on what to expect in spring.

Tournament list for spring 2022 is slowly solidifying. FIFA has a location and a date... well dates. That's the big change. After years of trying to decide what debates to host at FIFA and when the pandemic actually gave us our answer. 

February 18-20 we will host FIFA "Part 1". A virtual competition in IPDA and LD. This will allow for specialized (and larger) judge pools. 

February 25-27 will be an in person tournament hosted by the University West Florida. This will include NPDA debate, BP and all IEs. 

Personal  note: UCF is hosting PKD nationals on March 10-12. We hope you all can make it.
