We’re excited to announce that Victory Briefs Squads is now open for applications for the 2019–2020 debate season. Squads gives debaters an opportunity to work with top coaches and collaborate as a team with other students from all over the country.
Squad membership provides weekly Squad practices, frequent private coaching sessions, access to a curated shared Dropbox, weekly open office hours, guest seminars with championship level instructors and former debaters, and case feedback.
We are proud of our first year of Squads and the strong feedback participants offered. We frequently solicit feedback from our students to ensure the best possible experience and on our final student evaluation 100% of respondents indicated that they were glad they chose Victory Briefs Squads over other private coaching resources. Here’s what a member had to say about Victory Briefs Squads:
“Working with the coaches was really great. They were beyond helpful in both increasing my technical skill (ie speed/efficiency/etc) and expanding my content knowledge… Overall, squads has really helped my improve my skills throughout they year and there’s no way I would have had any of the success I’ve achieved without the help”
—David Edwards, Charlotte Catholic High School
Our primary coaches this season will include Jacob Nails, Christian Quiroz, and Pacy Yan. Students will also have the opportunity to attend guest seminars led by Brianna Aaron, Anthony Berryhill, Sai Karavadi, Devane Murphy, Jake Nebel, SunHee Simon, Chris Theis, Marshall Thompson, Darius White, and more.
The application will be on a rolling admissions basis, but spots are extremely limited, so we encourage you to apply quickly for the best chance at admission. You can apply to join the LD Squad here, or learn more at the VB Squads website. Applications are currently available only for Lincoln–Douglas debate.
