Questions about our products?
Check out our FAQ below! Still can’t find an answer? Fill out our form at the bottom to get in contact.
How does online coaching work?
Coaching is typically purchased in a 6-week block. We meet with your student for 6 sessions over 6 weeks. We coach via Skype or Google Hangouts, and we encourage students to have a webcam to make the meetings as fun and engaging as possible! Sessions are either 1, 1.5 or 2 hours long at the clients request.
To begin the search for a coach, fill out one of our coaching request forms so we can get in contact with you!
What events does DFWSD coach?
We have provided coaching services for every form of debate and virtually every speech category performed on any circuit or in any league.
Note: Although we can provide coaching for interpretive speech events, they are by nature difficult to coach and coordinate online. We encourage those seeking help with interpretive events to find in-person coaching options as opposed to online options.
What leagues does DFWSD coach?
We have coaches with a coaching background that spans high school and collegiate debate, homeschooled leagues to the Tournament of Champions, and everything in between. We will work with you to find the right coach!
How much does coaching cost?
Coaching payment varies per coach and per event. You will receive a quote for the hourly rate after you fill out our coaching request form! Visit “Our Elite Coaches” to get started.
How many hours are coaching sessions?
Typically, we recommend 1 hour sessions for speech coaching, 1.5 hour sessions for individual debate coaching, and 2 hour sessions for team debate (including policy and parli). We require you purchase a minimum of six sessions at a time
Do I pay up front or can I pay in installments?
Payments must be made up front.
Can I meet my coach before I pay?
Of course! After submitting a coaching request form, you will be given the chance to meet your coach before you financially commit.
Can I be refunded for unused sessions?
DFW Speech and Debate has a strict no-refund policy for sessions the student chooses not to use. If you are concerned that you may not use the full six-week bloc of sessions, contact us and let us know the extenuating circumstances.
