    How much are the fees to join RedDot Juniors League?

    The fees are SGD$90 for a team (maximum of 5 debaters).

    What's the difference between the competition, tournament and the championship?

    A tournament is generally used for any type of competition in which,, on one day or a few days, teams come together to compete.  The winner of the tournament may be called the champion, but you would not necessarily call the tournament a championship tournament.  Usually, championship tournaments refer to competitions at the end of a long season of games, during which the best teams in a league compete to determine who should be considered the overall champion of the league.

    One team playing one other team is a “competition.” A “tournament” involves multiple levels, like having the best 16 teams in the (world/country/region) compete to determine a champion.

    I have further questions regarding the debate competition.
