Local Leagues

The National Catholic Forensic League is a nationwide organization of public and private schools which presently has leagues in 35 states and the District of Columbia. These leagues are organized geographically along the diocesan lines of the Catholic Church. In order to be eligible to enter the Grand National Tournament, a school must belong to one of these leagues. It is possible for schools in a region to form a new league if one does not already exist nearby.

In addition to setting the standards for how students locally qualify for the Grand National Tournament, leagues have varying opportunities for ongoing tournaments and coach mentorship.

Please see the List of Leagues and Directors to your local league

Information is available on joining or forming a league.
