What do our students 

have to say?

What about our history 

of free tournaments?

We have hosted 6 free tournaments since 2021.

Too few debaters have no opportunities to compete on a national level against top notch competitors. Our tournaments give everyone a chance to practice, improve, and network with debaters across the country - 100% free. We organize experienced competitors and coaches to volunteer at our tournaments, giving high quality feedback to all competitors.

How about our

free coaching programs?

Equality in Forensics has operated a variety of 100% free, online coaching programs, lectures, workshops, and camps. Read about them here.

Free 1-on-1 coaching

From August of 2022 to February of 2023, we paired students up with volunteer coaches for 1-on-1 mentoring.

Our students went on to win 1st and 2nd place at the Florida Novice State Championship, make semifinals at the UK Tournament of Champions, finals at MS TOC and MS Harvard, and even win the National Catholic Forensic League Championship!
