private coach for a smol policy team

Recommended Posts

heyyo! so i go to a relatively popular high school in the dallas area, and the policy team at our school has gone to complete crap. our coach is trying to revive it, but now we’re left with a singular team. our coach offered to hire someone to come help us out (aka a private coach), but i’m not sure where to start looking into that. anyone have any info on how to find a priv coach in the dallas area?

Sorry about your policy season... 

 

2 things

1. try college kids. They could always use more money

 

2. Talk it up (the debate program) at school to all gradelevels and u will get more members.

I would be interested if yall are okay with just online coaching (File review, speeches, pre-tournament prep, and some card cutting). I coach in Virginia. Always looking for debate side gigs and happy to help out. Just message me.

To diversify your options, you should post on the High School Policy Debate Facebook page. Lots of college debaters and coaches would be likely to take you up on an offer.

And finding coaching or not, make sure to take advantage of all of the online resources you can to self-coach and improve:

- Open Evidence Project (debate.cards makes all of the files posted searchable)

- High School Caselist

- College Caselist (Most of these from this year back can be downloaded here: https://www.debatemusings.org/home/super-wiki-but-for-free)

- HSImpact

- Debate Musings 

- Watching and flowing debates on YouTube always works well too. Here's some good channels: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsXRbcErUsJaGtmuSlG30HQhttps://www.youtube.com/user/sailorferretshttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHjQk7L3qVKmfS0y-94ax9w

i'm also interested in helping and, coincidentally, i'm also in virginia. [insert eerie music of your choice here.] so it would have to be online assistance. i've been involved with policy debate for going on four decades and want to see the activity grow wherever it can. your coach wouldn't have to pay me anything to help out in this capacity.
