KEY PORTIONS OF OUR SCHEDULE

01. Lab Modules - Students are assigned to smaller groups based on diagnostics, with lectures, activities, and assignments to work on specific skills and/or knowledge areas. 

02. Drills & Practice Rounds - Students are paired in practice debates to put their knowledge and skills to a test, gaining experience debating on the Jan/Feb topic against students across the country. To refine skills, students are divided into small and/or individualized groups where they will practice specific concepts like speed, presentation, rebuttals, strategy, and more.

03. Electives - Students Designed to allow students flexibility and choice, Triumph Debate electives feature dozens of options for students in either division to gain deep understanding of dense material.

Triumph Debate staff aim to tailor elective options to the Jan/Feb topic, covering concepts that are most relevant and useful to debaters at that time.
