Join us August 1-5, 2022 for Summer Coach Camp, an opportunity to prepare for the upcoming debate season, build your debate knowledge and coaching skills, and be in a learning community with other (amazing!) debate coaches.
The primary role of coach is to recruit students and build team culture. More than 90% of our coaches have no prior experience with debate; with support from the coach community and the BDL program managers, you’ll learn strategies to foster an engaged debate team at your school.
As you can hear from the coaches below, Coach Camp is open to and designed for the FULL BDL coach community, from those brand new to debate to those who have been coaching for many years. Come experience the joy of learning as you prepare to coach your debaters in the coming year.
Dates: August 1-5, 2022
Location: Suffolk University, 20 Somerset Street
Online Login: Login to Zoom
Format: Hybrid; 3 in-person days and 2 online days
Time: In-person sessions will be 9:00am – 3:30pm
