The USUDA constitution does not make claims about hybrid team policies, so the hybrid team policy is set at the discretion of the tournament hosts.
At Stanford USUDC 2018, the hybrid team policy is described in the USUDC Policy on Hybrid Teams document.
- Hybrid teams are not allowed, unless they are composed of ESL or community college speakers.
- ESL and community college hybrids can break to ESL and community college out rounds, but cannot break to the open or novice outrounds. Their speakers are eligible for speaker awards in any category.
