We are a week away from our 2019 ASDCA Coaches’ Conference. If you haven’t checked out the website yet, go to www.joyoftournaments.com/az/convention for more information. Click on the link for the Google Form to register. We are not offering student workshops this year, but have a variety of workshops for coaches of all experience levels and interests.
We also have a Novice Policy Debate packet, as created by the National Debate Coaches Association. It features three aff cases, three neg cases, a number of disads, and a T-shell. it can be found at http://www.debatecoaches.org/2018-2019-novice-packet. All Policy tournaments with a novice division first semester should use this packet.
The year is already upon us. Hopefully everyone had an exciting summer and is ready for the Speech and Debate season. The calendar page is updated for 2019-2020 and we are already planning our first event – the ASDCA Conference on September 7th. Please watch out for emails from Meg Howell regarding the conference and let her know if you want to be a presenter.
Go Team AZ!
