Debate Welcome Handout

Below is the text of a handout being sent home with every debater this week: 

Read this yourself and then pass on to a parent.   

  • Everything you need to know is posted on our website and we have a public Twitter account @edinadebate that pushes out news and information.
  • Debate All-Team Parent Meeting -- Wednesday, Sept 9th 6:30PM in EHS Fick Auditorium.  Apparel will be available for purchase, plus the booster club asks that parents bring a checkbook.  We will cover team expectations, the season calendar, competition attire, and volunteer opportunities.
  • Novice scrimmage versus Eagan -- Saturday, Sept 19th (bus provided).  All new debaters will participate plus we need experienced debaters to judge and mentor.
  • Edina Invitational -- Saturday, November 14th.  Our own tournament, the first hosted at EHS in 30+ years.  Will need many parent volunteers to make this happen.
  • Novice/JV State Championships -- Friday, December 4th and Saturday, December 5th.  Every Novice and 2nd year debater should participate, senior debaters will be needed as judges, juniors and seniors will help with coaching.
