Why a parent judge training?

Debate tournaments rely upon parents for 3 important reasons:

1)   Transporting students

2)   Chaperoning students

3)   Judging novice tournament rounds

There is an art and a skill to judging a debate round—learn about both at this judge training workshop.  Junior Varsity and Varsity rounds are judged by college debaters or debate coaches, but the novice rounds are judged by parents.  Learn how to “flow” and recognize if the affirmative or the negative wins the question at hand.  This is a great way to begin to understand debate jargon and experience what your child is learning.
