RFD is excited to announce a brand new program starting tentatively on February 20, 2021: Reason for Debate's Practice Network. 

High school and middle school debaters can join RfD's virtual Network of debaters and experienced judges. After joining, students will be able to sign up for mock debate rounds against other students and debate virtually. RFD will match students with judges, and each student will receive critiques following their debate.

RFD recognizes students' busy schedules, so this program is completely personalizable to ANY schedule. Students have free range to sign up for times when they're available, and RfD will match them with a judge available at the same time. 

This is a completely unique and amazing opportunity designed to work with busy schedules! Don't miss out on this chance to receive constructive critiques live from seasoned debaters!

Q: How old do I have to be to participate?

Our program is designed for middle school students (6-8th grade) and high school students (9-12th grade); if you don't fall within this age range but still are interested, we encourage you to email us to double-check your eligibility. 

Q: I'm pretty busy, can I fit this into my schedule?

As noted above, this is Reason for Debate's most flexible program to date. You have complete control over what time your practice rounds take place. 

Q: I'm completely new to debate. Can I still participate?

Yes! We always welcome new debaters.
