SELECTing THE RIGHT DIVISION FOR COURSES

 
 

USE THIS GUIDE TO SELECT THE BEST DIVISIONAL FIT FOR YOUR CHILD:

Each child is born a creative genius with endless raw potential. Parents and Educators need to help them realize their potential. We recognize that some kids are more confident, while others are extremely shy (which debate is great for!); some kids have prior experience in debate, while others do not.

 

That's why we've created six different divisions, so that kids at transitioning grades have the option to join the best fit. There is really no hurry, and it's more important that kids gain confidence as they develop. If you have questions on finding the right divisional fit, please ask us for help on WhatsApp.
