WEEKLY ONLINE LESSONS
Students will participate in weekly online workshops, and prepare for a formal tournament at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. Classes begin on January 28th, and students will prepare for the competition on March 9th.
Our weekly lessons will be hosted on Sundays from 2:00PM to 3:30PM (1.5 hour sessions), starting on January 28th and ending March 10th (7 sessions). Homework will be assigned, and students must show they are prepared prior to attending the final tournament.
Our programs are ideal for students ages 12+ who are driven to learn and compete. Upon registering, families with receive a detailed schedule of lessons and tournament logistics.
Debaters from across Virginia will attend the tournament at Virginia Commonwealth University, where RDI team members will compete for a chance to win awards.
RDI staff will be present throughout the tournament (8AM to 5PM). Students will be supervised and navigated by RDI staff at all times. We welcome parent chaperones, and invite families to serve as volunteer judges.
