Debate is a competition based sport that involves both speech and debate; members of the debate team develop skills in research, organization, analysis, public speaking and dramatic interpretation. All of these skills help with classes at University High School as well as contributing towards college entry requirements. Debate team members attend several local tournaments as well as out of town tournaments during the year. Debate team members who earn 250 National Forensic League Points through competition earn a UHS letter.


A GPA of 3.00 or higher is expected. Students must attend practice at least twice a week. The team has been nationally recognized the last 8 years and we have made it to STATE the last 14 years in a row. ASB CARD, no fines, Athletic Eligibility and signed Pride Code required
