Spring Coaches Meeting on May 25

Our coaches’ meeting will take place on Wednesday, May 25 from 4-6 pm at CAS, 30 Realty Drive, Cheshire.  This is our primary business meeting of the year where we set the calendar and policy for the 2016-17 season.

An agenda will be sent out to all coaches prior to the meeting.  If you have any items you feel we should discuss, please email us at Connecticut Middle School Debate with your questions, comments and suggestions.

We welcome interested parties from non-member schools.  While this is primarily a business meeting, it is also an opportunity to meet current coaches and to get a feel for what the Connecticut Middle School Debate League is all about.

April 30 Tournament Results

On Saturday, we wrapped up the CT Middle School Debate League’s 2015-16 season with a tournament at Smith Middle School.  One hundred and seventy three students from eighteen schools debated the motion:

THW provide a path to citizenship for immigrants living illegally in the US.

The Final Round was St. Luke’s vs. St. Luke’s.  The team of Ruth Mercedes, Marco Volpitta and Laura Mercedes on Proposition prevailed over Kaitlyn Necakov and Amelie Warneryd on Opposition.

Marco Volpitta from St. Luke’s School earned the first place speaker award.  Katrina Thunhorst from Bethel Middle School placed second and Kendall Kennedy from Classical Magnet School was third.
