THE NEW YORK CITY DEBATE CLUB
(In Person or Virtual)
ABOUT DEBATE CLUB
What if I do not have a debate team or debate coach at my school? Join the Debate Club! The New York City Debate Club meets on Saturdays at our Office (25 Broadway, 9th Floor) during the Fall and Spring Semesters for drop in debate practices for 5th – 12th grade students. All students participating in Debate Club are eligible to participate in our tournaments. Our students have won local, city, regional and national tournaments. Our instructors are among the top debaters and coaches in the city. For students who cannot attend some or all practices in person we also offer virtual support as well (recorded lectures, topic materials, debate handbooks, email/phone support, and more. For the virtual option feel free to call or email us at email@example.com or 917-455-1079 for more information. While sessions will not be live, materials will be posted in a shared drive and students will have virtual access by email of the instructor for support. There is a registration fee for debate club which helps to cover the cost of the instructors and facilities.
Registration for the semester is $500.00 (see below for details and to register). This includes our weekly practices, monthly tournaments, breakfast and lunch at tournaments and other special debate events during the year (Debate Night, Girls Debate League, Workshops and more). After you register, you will be emailed an additional registration form for parental and student details (permission slip, emergency contact information, etc.)
