Weekly Meetings!

Weekly meetings will be every¬†Monday and Wednesday at 5:30 pm. We will be meeting in UC 202 for training and organizing debate rounds before dispersing to other rooms for rounds. If you didn’t get a chance to sign-up during clubs week, come out to one of out meetings!

The meeting will consist of a training session followed by debate rounds. For those who feel they need more training some of the first meetings will have rooms focused on training rather then debate. We also need judges as well as debaters so feel free to watch a debate until you are ready to get up at the front and talk yourself.

The debates in first semester will be in British Parliamentary style. For more information on this style, please see the link on the right hand side of the page.

If you haven’t already, please join our mailing list using the tab above. We will be sending out a weekly newsletter to keep everyone in the loop about club happenings, tournaments results, as well as future meeting rooms and tournaments we will be attending.

Club Membership

Club membership will once again cost just $20 dollars and guarantees you a spot in 1 tournament (approx $75 value), what a deal! Tournaments are held across Ontario and Canada. Come see beautiful Ottawa or Montreal with us, all while competing against our rivals such as Queens or Hart House in competitive debate tournaments where fun and competition go hand in hand.

Debate Videos

We have uploaded some awesome videos from previous World Debate Championships. These are some of the out rounds from previous tournaments and consequently some of the top debaters in the world. These videos can be found in the “Resources” tab above. Check back in the coming weeks for more videos.
