    Coach Wanted!

    Hello all, I'm a debater at a magnet high school in Chicago. We have historically had success, but no longer have any coaches. This, of course, makes bidding to the TOC and such more difficult when competing against incredibly well-resourced schools with large coaching staffs. My partner and I work incredibly hard and are looking to be nationally competitive, and thus we are looking for a coach for us as a pair. Our funds are very limited, so ideally the coaching would be largely pro-bono or, if you live in the Midwest or can travel to tournaments, payed via generous judging compensation. We are primarily flex debaters; I love and often go for kritikal arguments, but we are likely to read a policy aff this upcoming year. If you're interested or know of anyone who would be, please message or email me. Thank you!

    No coach

    Hello, this year I really have no coach at all, no help except from older team members. I was wondering how I can improve my skills in debate (i'm bad) without coaching and get really good. I don't want this to hold me back. Any advice? Ways of prepping? Practice? Etc... anything you can give me. Thank you for reading. :]
  3. Hello Cross-X forum friends, my partner and I have been debate nomads at our school for a bit, and this week we've been drafted to cover for our school's only policy debate team. We're not competing too seriously, of course, but we're looking not to make a fool out of ourselves or our school. The team we're filling in for and googling/lurking has taught us the basics of the order and a lot of the vocabulary - and we think we have a good grasp of that stuff, as we've observed a couple rounds of Policy before. We have no specific policy debate coach and our school wide coach tends to focus on LD debaters - basically we're coachless and mentor-less. Left out to dry. So, I've decided to come to what seems to be a pretty active cross-x forum to ask the noble denizens what case(s) I should run and a counterplan I can run in order to not make a mess of the debate round we're going to stand in for next weekend. Our school provided us with "squirrel killers" which appear to amount to scattered evidence and a lot of "on-case" negative cards. We've become familiar with Openevidence which seems to provide a multitude of cases we could run and a wide array of negative cards against given cases that we can use when it comes to debate day - but we have no idea which ones would be best for complete newbies like ourselves to run. In addition, I've run into a bunch of "K" cases and counterplans and such on Openevidence that I can't make heads or tails of. They reference a lot of specific philosophers I've never studied before and I can't exactly see how they win debates? I'd love explanations of "K" arguments I'd probably run into because I don't really understand how to debate against that. Having mostly debated parli in the past - it's usually data vs data but "K"'s seem out of my league. Any resources or guides for newbies would be appreciated. Basically - huge noob, what case/counterplan should I run? Thanks for helping me out, I'll tell you guys how it goes after the tournament if you're interested!
  4. I'm looking for a dedicated coach for LD. I currently reside in NYC. We can work out fees. Email me @SecondaryMail109@gmail.com
  5. heyyo im looking for a private coach! i dont exactly need one for policy debate per say - but LD. (keep in mind tho, the LD that i do is literally one person policy) i love the K, and performance, and literally anything critical - so if you are down with the K and/or have substantial experience with the K, that would be superb i would really like to get out there on the circuit next year, and ill probably be travelling independently so i can have more opportunities for #datbid (my school only goes to like 2 bid tournaments a year) im fairly successful for my first year on the circuit, having a relatively good record @ St Marx (rly hard tournament for LD), and breaking @ UT and making it to doubles so like im willing to do whatever work needed i just need someone familiar with the circuit/progressive db8/kritikal argumentation (which i understand that this is a policy forum and the likelihood of someone familiar with nat circuit LD is low but one can hope!) id probably start needing one at the beginning of the upcoming school year (per my parents' words) you dont necessarily have to be local, like i probably wont ask you to travel (unless i get that #dank #toc #bid) i just need someone to help like in the instance of if im at a big tournament some weekend and need prep-outs via text or whatever (if you dont live in texas), and like casing help and whatever, u know like what private coaches do b4 anyone gets weirded out that its LD or w/e, everything thats in policy is in LD (at least, circuit LD) (aka if youre a college policy debater then u would still be perfectly fine coaching me) (this is proven from experience) if yr interested or can at least direct me in the way of someone that would be PLZ comment and ill PM you !!!!!!!
