Saturday September 22nd: Novice Training Day will be held at the Sidney Smith Building and will start at 9am and run until about 5pm. The day will start off with about an hour of seminars and skills building before we break off into rounds of debate to let you practice. Lunch will be provided! New debaters and new-to-university debaters can come out to practice and learn debate while being coached by some of the best debaters in Canada. Feel free to email HartHouseDebate@gmail.com if you have any questions.
Friday September 28th to Sunday September 30th: Novice Tournament will be held at McGill. This is a novice-only tournament and is a great way to compete in debate for the first time against people of a similar skill level. We will leave U of T at 8am on Friday morning and return Sunday evening. The cost of the trip is $35 and that includes transportation to and from Montreal, accommodations, tournament registration fee and some food. We encourage anyone who is interested in debate to sign up! The deadline for application is Wednesday September 26th at midnight and you can apply at the Hart House front desk.
