Participate with ASDA

Participate with a Club

If you would like the opportunity to practice speech and debate skills with others in your area, then please consider joining an ASDA club.  

ASDA club leaders are usually parent volunteers that give their time to create an opportunity for their own children as well as others in their area to practice speech and debate skills as a group.  

Our current list of ASDA clubs may be found here.  If there is not a club in your area, we could love to help you start your own club! 


Participate with a School

ASDA welcomes students from public, private, and charter schools.  Our tournaments provide accessible, affordable competition experiences for your speech and debate team.  

Reach out to us for more information on registering an existing team or starting a team in your school.
