Join our team!
There are two ways to join the team: You can take the Debate and Public Speaking class, or attend our after-school meetings on Tuesdays and Thursdays! Make sure to listen for announcements about meetings at the beginning of each semester. You can join at any time during the school year, but the earlier the better!
Take the Class
Those joining for the first time may take Debate & Public Speaking in the fall semester, which will satisfy the communication requirement to graduate. In this class, you'll learn the basics of speech and debate, practice research skills, and get your first taste of competition. After your first year, you can sign up for Advanced College Credit Debate as an elective, which is designed for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year debaters
Speech & Debate meets after school every Tuesday and Thursday in room A214. In our meetings, we give updates on future competition opportunities, practice speaking drills, and set individual and team goals. Stop by any time and try out Speech & Debate!
