Welcome to the home page of the National Catholic Forensic League, dedicated to supporting high school speech and debate activities for public, private, and parochial high schools in the US and Canada.


  • The NCFL Fall Diocesan League Directors Meeting will be held on Friday, September 29, and Saturday, September 30, 2017, in Washington DC.  

    We are still working out the exact starting time on Friday, but expect it to be either 6 or 7pm.  On Saturday we expect to finish by 1pm.

    We are at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC.  This is the headquarters hotel for NCFL 2018 DC.  It’s easily accessible by Metro, our subway, from Reagan National (DCA) airport or Amtrak’s Union Station.  If you are flying into Dulles (IAD) you can use a car service, cab, etc to take you downtown, or to the Reston Metro stop and take Metro from there.  If you’re flying into Baltimore (BWI), you can use MARC Train service to Union Station if you’d like, and then take Metro from there.  Parking is available at the hotel, but it is tremendously expensive.
