Training Program 2017
The ACT Debating Union is revamping its training program this year, kicking off with a new debaters training weekend in early Semester 1! The training weekend has currently been postponed until later in semester 1, but we are still seeking expressions of interest. The training weeking will feature workshops, practice debates and training sessions run by experienced university-level debaters and will be a great introduction to debating for the year. Keep an eye out here for more information! Expressions of interest can be placed here: https://goo.gl/forms/5f2u6BIte6qrr15W2.
Please note that we will not be continuing the Tuesday afternoon seminars, but instead will be providing more training resources on the website and we will, dependent on interest, be running more training days throughout the year.

Semester One competitions are back this year, starting on Monday 6th March for Junior, Wednesday 8th March for Senior and Thursday 9th March for Advanced. Competitions will run through school terms 1 and 2, with all dates available on our Calendar.
