• Welcome to the Del Val Debate Club / Team Webpage!
     
    Information:
     
    •  Debate Club meets every Thursday starting at 2:30 PM.
    • Every meeting, we debate one or two previously selected topics. Members separate into two teams, and each team supports one side of the argument. Members then exchange "points" and counter their opponents' arguments. 
    • To decide the topics that we will be debating, members can vote on a Debate Club poll, which features student-generated topics. 
    • Members can always  email the senior officers of Debate Club any ideas for debate topics.
