The New York City Debate Club meets on Saturdays 10:00am-12:00pm (Middle School) and 12:00pm-2:00pm (High School) 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. Debate Club is for new debaters, intermediate debaters and advanced debaters. 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 (topic materials, debate handbooks, email/phone support, and more). There is a registration fee of $500.00/semester for debate club which helps to cover the cost of the instructors, facilities, tournament registration, supplies and snacks. Scholarships are available.
