Welcome to the 2014-2015 Freedom Speech and Debate Team Webpage! Membership for this year's squad is not finalized -- we are always willing to have students come along to join for active membership. Participants that wish to letter in debate or speech must compete in at least half of the team competitions (WACFL, VHSL and/or invitational events) in at least three competitive categories.
Those planning to join the team need to look over the WACFL website at http://www.wacfl.org/. This website provides detailed explanation on each of the categories to help students become familiarized with the topics for this year. While we encourage students to participate in as many events as possible, each will choose one category as their primary form of debate or speech.
There will be a meeting for all parents and team members on October 2 at 7pm in Room L207. Parents are a vital component of team success, and we look forward to your support! Freedom Speech and Debate has gone to National Finals since it began, and we humbly ask for your continued support!
