New Debaters Welcome

You do not need previous policy debate experience to join our team. Many of our debaters come to Liberty with no high school debate experience and our coaching staff specializes in training new debaters.

You only need to be a full-time, residential undergraduate student who likes to learn in a competitive environment.
