Welcome to the 2015-2016 Tournament Season

  Greetings from Rocky Mountain Stoa, your Christian Homeschool Speech and Debate League 

What is Stoa?

“Training Christian homeschooled students through Speech and Debate to better communicate a Biblical worldview”

Stoa is a national organization serving the needs of Christian Homeschooling families through Speech and Debate. It offers a competitive league for students age 12‐18, supports a growing network of clubs and coaches, and helps facilitate numerous tournaments and training opportunities across the nation.

What is Speech and Debate?

Speech and Debate is a collection of competitive, academic events in which students practice various aspects of public speaking. In interpretive events, for example, students act out an original or published work, emphasizing the hilarious or the tragic in different events. In debate, students contend to persuade the audience to different sides of a given topic. Whatever the event, participation and competition are both incredibly enjoyable and immensely rewarding.
