Our practice schedule will be released in one-week increments on MillerSpeech.com. Practices will begin during the fall, and these dates will be announced in early August. Students are NOT required to attend every practice, however, students must attend practices regularly in order to compete. We will offer practice times after school and in the evening. Students will be expected to communicate any foreseen conflicts with their scheduled practice times and meets.
Our team travels to competitions on many Saturdays from October through March. We take a school bus to each meet and bus departure times can range from 5:30 AM to 6:45 AM. Bus departure times will be announced on this site on the Monday prior to a competition. Students should come prepared with all necessary attire, lunch money (schools sell concessions), and any other items necessary for a long day of competition. Competitions take place at various Indiana high schools and generally start at 8:30 AM and end around 4 or 5 PM.
Our parents and volunteers serve as the judges for our competitions. We compete almost 15 times throughout the season, so our need is always great. For each competition, teams are required to supply a certain number of judges based upon the size of their team. We normally need about 10 volunteer judges from our team alone. The task of judging is very easy and anyone can do it (the only requirement is that you must be over the age of 18 and out of high school). The primary task is ranking rounds of 6 students on a paper ballot and writing down a few critiques about what you enjoyed/what could be improved in the student's performance. Each tournament is comprised of 4 rounds and you will never judge a Noblesville student. It's a fun and rewarding experience and food is always provided for judges throughout the day.
We will announce the roster for each meet by the prior weekend (on this site). As with any competitive team, we will travel with students we feel are most prepared to compete. Students will "apply" to attend meets through a Google Form on MillerSpeech.com. If we do not accept a student's request to compete one week, this does not apply to future tournaments! Every student will have an opportunity to compete this season if he/she puts forth the effort.
Each member will pay annual dues of either $85 (new member) or $65 (returning member), due by August 30, 2019. This fee covers all in-state team travel, required registration fees at the state & local level, material fees, and more. Students will be required to compete in a professional modern suit and dress shoes. Coaches can provide specific web resources for attire. If a student does not already own a suit, this may be an additional expense. Spirit wear will be available for purchase in late August. Students will need lunch money for each tournament (prices are similar to those found at a little league ballpark). Students competing at the sectional and state tournaments may have to pay a nominal competition fee.
We will be hosting a pizza fundraiser in mid-September (more info coming soon). We will also have a GoFundMe campaign in October to fund special team experiences and national-level competitions.
To be announced.
Our coaches and captains utilize Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Email, Remind Text Alerts, and MillerSpeech.com to communicate. MillerSpeech.com is the primary source of communication. The contact information provided on the student's team application will be utilized unless otherwise communicated.
All competitors must have a random drug screen form on file in order to compete. Our program has a zero tolerance policy for bullying and misconduct of any kind. We foster a family-first atmosphere and an opportunity for all students to excel. If a student violates the NHS Code of Conduct at any point during the season, our coaches reserve the right to dismiss him/her from our program without refund.
