How Much does it cost?
Tournament costs vary, but most entry fees range from $7 to $15 per event. Invitationals and other multi-day events tend to have higher fees, in addition to travel and housing costs. Team members are asked to pay $125 for the season. This covers league dues and a single event at every league competition.

Who are the judges?

So, is Speech and Debate a Sport?
Yes... and no. We compete, have to dress a certain way (although I'd say we "dress up" rather than "dress down"), and our team meetings are actually practices - just like any sport! But within the school we are actually an ASB club, not an athletic sport. But if you think about it, that has perks, too. For example, no doctor's physical needed!
Wait! I have more Questions.
Our team is happy to answer! Contact the school office for more info, or come to the next competition.
