2017 Labor Day Weekend Policy Debate Camp (NCFCA & Stoa)
Registration is now open for Coach Vance's annual Labor Day Policy Debate Camp. Camp will be conducted by me and my old high school debate partner, Coach Rob Parks, at my house southeast of Charlotte, NC.
We accommodate and teach both resolutions (NCFCA and Stoa).
We have a big session on the history & background of the resolutional topic, and other lectures on key elements of policy debate. We lecture on specific stock issues and how to debate them, cross-examination, use of evidence and refutation, along with ethical behavior in policy debate. And we have practical exercises where we practice the skills taught, including practice debate rounds that are stopped and started with one of the coaches aiding each debater each step of the way inside each speech in real time.
The program begins Aug 31 at 5:30PM (the Thursday before Labor Day), and concludes at noon on Labor Day Monday, Sept 4. Housing is available on site for those who want or need it. All meals are provided. Free transportation from the CLT airport is available. Parents/Coaches are welcome to attend all parts of the program at a reduced price. Cost is $275 per student and $75 for a parent or coach.
Attendance is capped strictly at 12 students. Register here:http://coachvance.homeschooldebate.net
