Anyone at your school can run this program. Especially if your school is new to speech and debate, you may not have anyone at your school with speech and debate experience. This is typical and should not hinder you from starting a speech and debate program.
We will help provide your speech and debate coach with training and the materials necessary to get started and build a successful program. In addition to providing your speech and debate coach with initial materials and training , we offer annual conferences and newsletters that will help your speech and debate coach continue to grow and excel in their coaching skills and knowledge.
The speech and debate coach can be a teacher, a parent, or any other school staff member. Government, history, economics, speech, and English teachers are typical candidates for the debate coaches, but any responsible adult can coach your team.
