About Our Team

Based in Bethesda, MD, with around 100 plus active members, we are one of the nation's largest & most successful forensics squads. All Whitman students in all grades can participate, choosing among more than ten varieties of speech & debate on the national and local levels under the leadership of an experienced part-time staff. Whitman Speech & Debate is an independent, non-profit school club funded by team dues, donations & fundraisers. 

Attending Practice

The Speech and Debate team meets Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:45-8:45 on the second floor of Whitman. 

All events hold weekly practice led by hired coaches and student captains.
