Running a debate team is very fun and rewarding, but it's important to cover the basics.
New in 2018-19, the WUDL has created a complete, comprehensive Novice Curriculum and Coaches Manual. This book covers background knowledge for coaches, administrative responsibilities, and suggested meeting activities, all in one.
If there is something we missed, we'll make sure to cover it in future updates. As a beta version, we'll definitely be tweaking and updating the manual as we get feedback.
Every coach will get a hard copy at their first tournament (or sooner)
