This is the initial form for students interested in registering for the Fall 2015 program.
ABOUT OUR PROGRAM:
Our Fall 2015 programs are intended for 6th-12th grade students (younger students admitted by prior approval) of all ages and experience levels. Our goals with these classes include exposing and teaching students competitive speech and debate, and developing a love for the activity and improvement in public speaking and critical thinking skills through competition in local tournaments.
Our program features the most popular Speech & Debate formats used at the California State and National levels. In Debate, students have their choice of Public Forum, Lincoln-Douglas, Policy, and Parliamentary styles. In Speech, generally all California & National level formats are available. Explanations and recommendations of speech/debate events will be made for brand new students on the first day of class.
The focus of our Fall 2015 program is to have students compete and practice not only in-class at our facility, but also at local tournaments and competitions, which from experience, is the best way to continually test and improve the speaking and thinking ability of students.
TEACHERS & STAFF:
Our programs will staffed and taught by individuals who have competed and coached at the highest levels in the Bay Area, State of California, and National circuit. The vast majority of our staff hails from local colleges.
