Join the Team
in participating in competitive speech?
No experience necessary! Plan to attend
the first team meeting in September (meeting information is posted in the Speech
Team office) to receive information on tryouts. Students who miss this meeting
should contact the coaches.
The season runs from early October
through mid-March. In addition to Monday meetings and coaching appointments,
students spend an average of four to eight hours weekly developing speeches, and
participate in three to five weekend tournaments each semester.
Plus, if qualified, the team participating in the national tournament, which is
held each April at varying cities across the country.
