High School Debate Club Schedule (Spring 2019)

The New York City High School Debate Club meets 2-3 practices monthly and competes at monthly High School Tournaments as well as serve as judges and tournament interns at Middle School Tournaments each month. 

  • We meet Saturdays, 12pm-3pm at 25 Broadway, 9th Floor, NY, NY 10004
  • High School Debate Club does NOT meet on High School Tournament Dates!  Students should either be debating, observing, judging, or taking the day off.
  • High School Debate Club does NOT meet on Middle School Tournament Dates!  The best way to learn is to teach. High School Debaters should be judging or mentoring debaters. High School debaters can also serve as tournament interns and learn various skills in tournament organization, event management, leadership, nonprofit skills, business skills, and more. Students will learn more in 6 hours of a debate tournament than a month's worth of debate club classes. 
  • High School Debate Club does NOT meet on NYC Department of Education holiday dates.
