Discounts are offered to multiple debaters attending from a school or to coaches who bring their debaters to the institute. Only one discount is available per party and must be selected in advance of the institute. If multiple debaters attend with their coach, either the coach or the debaters will receive a discount, not both.

Discounts for multiple debaters from the same school:

Two debaters:

$30 per debater (one week)
$50 per debater (two weeks)

Three debaters:

$35 per debater (one week)
$60 per debater (two weeks)

Four or more debaters

$40 per debater (one week)
$70 per debater (two weeks)

Please note: For resident students the total discount will be subtracted from the institute fee. For commuting students only half of the discount will be given.
