The new and redesigned Accelerate Program will make coaching accessible to all speakers in the Auckland debating community. In 2020, the program is a structured coaching program equivalent to 4 half-days, fusing debating theory and knowledge with exercises and practice debates. The program will be delivered multiple times during 2020 across Auckland to allow access to all students.
Each block will be capped at either 12 or 18 students and is open to any students regardless of their year level or school. Each school is guaranteed one student however after this, access to the program will prioritise schools who don’t otherwise have access to coaching.
The program will be coached by university debaters and in some cases top high school debaters who have had at least one years experience in the Premier Advanced grade.
Accelerate program registrations are as individuals only. Students do not have to go through a school to register.
The program is fully funded by Auckland Schools Debating so is free to participate in.
