My name is James Holley and I am a former HS debater from the Chicago UDL. I am relocating to the Santa Cruz area and would love to assist in the coaching of a team.
I use to debate for Morgan Park HS from the seasons of 99-00 till 02-03 in which i was fairly successful ( Qualifying for NFLs twice, cleaing at 10 + TOC bid tournaments, winning the Chicago City Championships 3 years consecutively, winning or closing out over 15 tounaments in the Chicago Debate League, and countless speaker awards.) I have coach quite extensively for my alma mater actually coaching one team to the TOC in the 04-05 season. I have worked with other schools both within and outside my debate league including Lane Technical HS (Chicago) Whitney Young Magnet (Chicago) Von Stubean (Chicago) Rocky Mountain HS ( Fort Collins, CO) just to name a few. I have also worked numerous times in a teaching capacity teaching two sumers at the Spartan Debate Institutte held by the Michigan State Debate team. I have also taught at the Chicago Debate Instiute those two summers as well.
Im looking for a position in the bay area close or around the Santa Cruz area ( But I am willing to travel throughout the bay area). I am looking to help out in any way that i can from evidence research to judging. I would love to establish a relationship with a team starting soon so that we can have the summer to establish a bond if this suits your teams needs let me know .
