Summer Debate Camp/Clinic Rules
Debate coaches may work with students all summer on a voluntary basis. Coaches may NOT make summer camp a requirement of students.

Coaches may host a 1 week camp in the summer for their own students. However, the school can’t pay a fee for any camp, or finance any camp (1 week host camp may be held in the school library or similar area). *Transportation: School districts may permit school owned transportation to be used to transport students to debate summer camps, clinics, workouts or scrimmages with other schools. KSHSAA catastrophic insurance does not cover these summer activities. Individual school districts will decide whether to permit school owned transportation to be used for these activities.

By interpretation, concerning debate summer camp rule, debate season doesn’t start until the first competition date. Thus invitational debate clinics/camps may be held up to September 18, 2016. If a school authorizes a field trip to a clinic, they may fund and provide school bus transportation. (Field trip means all students attending must be enrolled in an academic debate class). This type of trip could only be during the school calendar year.

Debate (2016-17 School Year)
IMPORTANT - If your school plans on participating in Debate in Fall 2016, the head coach must ask their Athletic Directors to enter your school. Remember, the old Debate participation card is now a part of the ADM-1 (administrator form) and is due August 18, 2016.
