Good luck, VDA teams!
Vancouver Debate Academy is sending 12 teams to the UBC High School Debate Tournament taking place this weekend (April 7th and 8th). Registration has closed, but interested students are welcome to contact VDA to discuss joining a debate class to improve their skills in preparation for future tournaments.
The UBC Tournament will be divided into three categories: Novice, Junior, and Senior. Teams participating at the Senior level will follow British Parliamentary (BP) debate rules, while Junior and Novice teams will follow the Canadian National Debate Format (CNDF).
Students from Vancouver Debate Academy have previously won this tournament; our students were the Champion Team in Spring 2017 and in the Fall 2017 tournament, student Ellen Li was Junior Champion. We wish our 2018 competitors the best of luck and hope they are able to perform as well. We can’t wait to see how they do!
