My high school has an excellent debate team (national level) which I would love to join...but they said that we can't be on a sport team if we join it. Does your school does this? It really upsets me, I am very athletic and somewhat good in basketball, and will probably make the team. I am a freshman by the way. Also, if teams meet everyday afterschool, then I will have to miss club meetings, right?

At my school, you can be on sports & debate. Debate doesn't have that many mtgs. Of course it's a lot of work, but it's up to you to meet w/your partner & practice w/others on your own (as opposed to at official mtgs).

Pick one to stick with. It's the *commitment* which counts. I balanced Violin, a sport, and Debate freshman year. Something had to go after that-- and the sport went, though I wasn't bad at it. I just didn't enjoy it anymore.
That said, I would go for debate. I'm not biased, really! ;)

Well, if your school's debate team is on the national level, then I'm assuming that you really WOULDN'T be able to balance debate with a sport. From what I've heard, teams on the national circuit are so hardcore that it consumes every part of their lives.

Yeah, it's pretty good they said. Besides being one of the best schools in NYC, my school is very known for the girls swim team champs and an excellent debate team. I guess that makes sense that we will not be able to play a sport as well as doing debate. I think everyone should play some kind of sport though in high school.

Or you could be thankful that your school has a debate team in the first place.
