New Provinces Project: trainers needed

This project aims to develop debating in provinces lacking provincial debating structures and experienced organisers, trainers and adjudicators. As part of this project, the SASDB will be running a training programme in Kimberly, Northern Cape on 16 and 17 August.

The SASDB needs your help! We require three trainers for this project. The workshop consists of a basic introduction to debating skills (a training programme developed by the SASDB specifically for this project), a workshop on coaching and organising schools debating aimed at teachers, and some practice debates.

Transport and accommodation will be covered by the SASDB, and there is a R1000 stipend per trainer for this weekend.

If you are interested, please send a debating CV and a brief motivation to before Saturday 3 August.

National adjudicator database

Dear debating community,

The SASDB is compiling a national database of adjudicators. This database will allow us (1) to keep a record of adjudicators and their contact details, so we can contact you with information and opportunities and (2) keep an ongoing record of achievements and feedback, to assist with things such as assigning adjudication panels.

We have set up an online form for everybody who is interested to submit their details. The database will be made up of these entries as well as our own data from national tournaments. Please enter as much information as possible, and if you would like to update your personal information, you can do so at any time.

The form can be found here.
