Parent Speech Team Boosters
Parents are an important part of the Southwest Debate Team.  Parents and families support the students as they practice and participate in debate.  Many parents provide transportation to tournaments for their own and other students.

Parents, with some training, serve as coaches, judges and timekeepers.  Without the involvement of parents, the program would not be possible.

There are future plans to establish a Parent Speech and Debate Team Booster Group.  This will involve fund-raising and volunteering of time.  The team needs financial support for registration costs and the costs of supplies.  Students are recognized with a variety of earned honors and a banquet at the conclusion of each season.
