Middle School Debate Club Schedule (2019-2020 School Year)

Clik here to sign up for Fall 2019 MS Debate Club

The New York City Middle School Debate Club meets 3-4 practices monthly and competes at monthly Middle School Tournaments.

  • Regular Practice Times (Non-Tournament Days): We meet Saturdays, 10am-12pm at 25 Broadway, 9th Floor, NY, NY 10004
  • Middle School Tournament Day Practice Times: We meet at the Tournament! Students who are competing will be at the tournament from 9am-5pm/6pm. Students who are not competing and just interested in Practice, we meet from 9:00am-11:00am instead of 10am-12pm. This way students have the opportunity to watch debate rounds after practice and/or return home. Breakfast and Lunch will be served.
  • Middle School Debate Club does NOT meet on NYC Department of Education holiday dates. 
  • Please note that all dates, times, locations are subject to change due to changes. We will do our best to notify on our weekly debate club email listserve, so please make sure you receive this email once a week. You can also contact us at info@debate.nyc
