Speaking Boldly. Changing the World for Christ.

  • Stoa membership is required to compete at NITOC and NITOC-modeled tournaments.

(It is expected that a student registering for a tournament is able to compete the entire tournament.)

  • The "Stoa Year" begins August 1, 2014 and extends to July 31, 2015.

  • Each Stoa member family plays a vital role as Stoa members have input into all the major decision affecting the organization. Some examples:

  1. Stoa members submit candidate suggestions for the Stoa Board and vote to elect the Stoa Board of Directors.

  2. Stoa members submit debate resolution suggestions and vote to choose next year's resolutions.

  3. Stoa members submit IE Wildcard suggestions and vote to choose next year's Wildcard.

  4. Stoa members suggest and vote on event structure - such as the current revolving Wildcard events.

Membership dues for the 2014-2015 season are as follows:

Voting Members

  • $45.00 per Competing Family (regardless of the number of 12-18 year old students)
  • $25.00 for Coaches/Parents (without their own students) or other coaches/alumni
  • Dues are not refundable or transferable

Non-Voting Members

  • $15.00 for Friends of Stoa or families with junior students only (all students less than 12 years old on 1/1/15) - this status is sometimes necessary for junior tournament insurance purposes when all competitors must be Stoa members.
  • Dues are not refundable or transferable
