About the New Hampshire Debate League
The New Hampshire Debate League is an association of teachers in public and private high schools who organize and promote debate as an extracurricular and co-curricular activity.
Several debate tournaments are offered throughout the year, culminating in a NH championship tournament in March. Schools also have the option of joining the National Speech and Debate Association (NSDA) and competing in the New England district tournament to qualify for the national tournament held in June.
Please contact the following debate coaches if you are interested in learning more. We are happy to provide information, training and workshops for students and teachers that would like to start a debate team at their school.
