CHS Speech and Debate Team

Coach: Christian Curet ( 


The CHS Speech and Debate Team was started in 2012 as a club extension of the Speech and Debate Class. It quickly grew into a competitive team which attends tournaments that range all over Maryland, DC, and Virginia. The team helps to not only develop speaking skills, but also critical thinking, improvisation, argument building, and research skills, as well as dramatic expression, all of which are highly sought after by both employers and colleges.


The Speech and Debate team’s goal is to make each of its members a better Debater, a better Speaker, and a better student. And to have some fun while we’re at it. It’s the one club where we expect you to argue with each other and drama is encouraged. Stand up and be Heard.
