We really feel that Debate Drills helped shape her into the confident and successful debater she is today by believing in her abilities before she grew into them! Thank you, DebateDrills!

Sehgal Family

 

Our daughter, Meera Sehgal joined DebateDrills in the summer before her 11th grade. We were very pleased with the level of emotional and on-the-ground support Meera received from DebateDrills during the various tournaments she attended. She always felt supported, encouraged, and part of a 'team' during stressful rounds in tournaments.
DebateDrills allowed her to manage her demanding 11th grade course work and also focus on the high level debate curriculum, drills, and practice rounds, resulting in a qualification to the TOC. Meera was able to focus on the important aspects of the debate, improve her skills and strategies, and leave the detail oriented and time consuming slog debate preparation requires to DebateDrills. We really feel that Debate Drills helped shape her into the confident and successful debater she is today by believing in her abilities before she grew into them! Thank you, DebateDrills!

When I initially joined the DebateDrills club team for my junior year, I didn’t realize what a transformative experience it would be for both my debate career and personal growth. My favorite aspect of the DebateDrills curriculum and philosophy is the commitment to excellence through hard work, and the coaches are always available to do effective drills on multiple technical aspects of debate so that you can really focus on mastering them on a deeper level. The staff is extremely knowledgeable on a variety of subjects, which was helpful because as a squad we could be flexible in the types of prep and strategies we produced throughout the year. On the club team, I made some of my closest friends in debate and had a blast making fun memories hanging out with them at tournaments, which is a product of the way the club team brings together students who are all so passionate about the activity. I would recommend joining the DebateDrills club team to anyone looking to really maximize the quality of their time in debate, and have fun doing it!
