Our Schools

The WUDL partners with more than 55 schools across the Washington Metropolitan area, so partnering with the WUDL easy and free. 


Schools identify a teacher to serve as the primary coach of the debate team and recruit students. The teacher receives a stipend, plus all of the training, evidence, curriculum, and expert assistance you need to be successful. We offer monthly training sessions during our tournaments so coaches can improve their skills.
