Welcome to the Baltimore Catholic Forensics League
The Baltimore Catholic Forensic League is a Speech and Debate League open to all schools in the greater Baltimore area. Our goal is to encourage and to assist in the development of articulate leaders, and to promote curricular and extracurricular speech and debate activities in all area secondary schools.
METROS Championship, March 20th ONLINE
|Student Congress Metro Championship, March 17th ONLINE|
TournamentsThe Baltimore Catholic Forensic League provides a series of tournaments throughout the year. In each month from September through March there is one BCFL Tournament, with Speech and Debate events, and one Student Congress tournament. Due to school and/or calendar restrictions both events may be held on the same date.
At each of the preliminary tournaments students compete to qualify to attend the Metropolitan Championship Tournaments held in March. This tournament determines the students who will represent the BCFL at the NCFL Grand National Tournament held on Memorial Day weekend each year.
Thanks to everyone for a great 2020-2021 tournament season! We did a great job meeting the challenge of conducting tournaments online. Congratulations to those who qualified for the Metro Championship, and we look forward to seeing all of you (virtually) at the Championship tournament and at Nationals.
