Welcome to the AHS/SILSA Speech and Debate Team. If you are returning, we’re glad you’re back. If you are new, you’re about to be a part of what I think is the greatest experience your student can have while in high school.

Please download this PDF and carefully read the information regarding some of our needs for the year. We need heavy parent involvement in order for the team to function.

Finally, please plan to attend the student/parent retreat on Saturday, September 9th from 11 AM to 2 PM at Asheville High. We will have parent sessions with further explanations and coaches and booster club members will be there to answer any questions you have.

In the meantime, please feel free to contact me anytime with questions.

I look forward to a great year!
