ASAP Debate is always interested in recruiting new members! Since debate is an activity that involves intensive research, reading and writing, ASAP generally asks that a school teacher or staff member lead the program. No debate experience is necessary to lead a club -- ASAP provides debate coach training and resources. ASAP hosts regular debate coach trainings and can help start a new program at any point during the year.

Parents, students, and school staff members who are interested in starting a program should contact Sara Morningstar at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 215-545-2727 ext. 10.
