Registration for the TCCHS debate team is ongoing, and students may begin participating at any time. Our first tournament is in September and most of the season occurs in October and November. State championships are in February and March. Our team caps the season with a casual spring tournament at Warner Robins High School.
Steps for Registration
- Log into your tcjackets.net account and complete the participation agreement.
- Register for Remind messages (You may text @tccspeaks to 81010.)
- Register for the Debate Team Training at classroom.google.com. The enrollment code to join is h15l1h.
- Submit $10.00 dues payment to Mr. Bellamy or via My Payments Plus. Students enrolled in an “Individual and Law” class are exempt from paying dues.
Coach Bellamy will deposit dues for use toward debate team costs for supplies, food, lodging and travel to tournaments.
Practice, preparation and frequent participation in tournaments is essential to perform competitively. Every student will improve with experience. The team currently plans to attend about two debate tournaments per month September through January. Each student must agree to attend at least three tournaments to participate. A student may be dismissed from the team in the discretion of the coach if not participating regularly. The selection of competitors for competitions may depend upon each student’s degree of preparation and demonstrated abilities to perform. Coach Bellamy may also give priority for traveling to tournaments to students according to their date of registration for an event.
