Travel tournaments take students to higher levels of competition. Some travel tournaments are strictly for certain debate events, some for speech events only, and some for both speech and debate. Participation in a travel tournament is by coach invitation.
Two tournaments that Kent sends large contingents to are the Cheyenne East Holiday Classic in mid-December and the California Invitational in Berkeley in February. First year members who are active participants and who compete regularly in tournaments will have a good chance of being invited to attend these exciting travel tournaments.
