Coaches Workshop

JMU is pleased to offer an institute for high school speech and debate coaches who are interested in learning how to direct a program, improve their coaching skills and engage in spirited discussions with other coaches from the region.

As part of the institute, coaches will be able to work alongside our staff members in order to see a variety of coaching strategies and research techniques. The institute will include numerous guest lectures from directors of speech and debate from both the high school and college level. 

This institute will be hands on and coaches will leave with all of the tools neccessary to run your own very successful forensics program.
