  • Q: My child is very advanced in debate but they are in elementary school. Could I skip the public speaking class and sign up the middle school debate class directly?

    A: There are a lot of skills that students need to learn before becoming a good debater ex. logical thinking, analytical research, fact checking, etc. We would recommend elementary school students start with our Ruby Class. Big improvements can be seen after one year of training. 

  • Q: My child is a middle school student without any debate experience. What are the details of your beginning course?

    A: For middle schooler, we have the entry debate class (Sapphire or Lilac Class).  These two classes are for students who would like to try it and pick up the basic skills for debate. Once they finish the course, they have the option to advance to high level Potomac Debate Classes. Students will learn about tournament rules and continue to develop their skills in Public Forum. Students must sign up themselves with parent approval and go to tournaments on weekends. 

    Q: My Child has some debate experience, which class should I choose?

    A: Sapphire is the entry level class for middle school, Ruby is the entry level for elementary school and Amber is the entry level for high school. If you have debate experience before and would like to be placed to a higher level class, please contact us for a tryout.

  • Q: For Potomac Debate Class and Tournaments, how do you do it after COVID? 

    A: For Potomac classes, we will have the in-person/online classes after COVID. For Tournaments, once they allow in-person debates, we will make sure that both partners sign up for the same tournament. They will work on their topics online and meet in-person at the Tournament site. We will also have local Tournament coaches there to help them.
