Team Policy debate falls under Stoa rules and is for debaters ages 12 to 18. Ages are determined as of October 1st.

Team Policy explanation from Stoa:

A Team Policy debate asks competitors to develop and defend competing policy options to address contemporary problems. The purpose of Team Policy debate is to instill in Christian home school students the skills of presentation, critical thinking, research, and policy analysis. That endeavor is accomplished in an environment of honorable competition that cultivates maturity, wisdom, grace, poise, and brings glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.


  • Two students per team.
  • Policy oriented debate.
  • Rounds last 75 min.

*Please note that not all tournaments offer Team Policy Debate.
