2013-2014 Membership Registration

When registration opens it will be at this link

Stoa exists to train private Christian homeschooled youth in speech and debate to better communicate a Biblical world view.

  • Stoa membership is required to compete at NITOC and NITOC-modeled tournaments.
  • 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 2013-2014 season are as follows:

There will be a small increase in Membership Dues for the 2014-2015 season (as dues have remained unchanged for the past two seasons) and some restructuring of the membership categories.

  • $10.00 for parents/coaches (without their own students) or alumni
  • $10.00 for families with junior students only (all students less than 12 years old on 1/1/14)
  • Dues are not refundable or transferable
