Alvirne Debate Team competes in the New Hampshire Debate League using the Public Forum debate format. 

The New Hampshire Debate League is an association of teachers in public and private high schools who organize and promote debate as an extracurricular and co-curricular activity.

Several debate tournaments are offered throughout the year, culminating in a NH championship tournament in the Spring to qualify for the national tournament held in July.

In school year 2018-2019, Alvirne successfully returned to Debate Team action. In addition to placing at every Debate League event the team attended, ALL of Alvirne’s Debate Team qualified for the Coolidge Cup National Debate Tournament!

Debate Team meets for practice every Monday afternoon 2:15-3:15pm.
