What we're all about

Img 20180407 092149 950
We're a passionate group of students from Centennial, Colorado that works hard to achieve great things in public speaking. Through speech and debate, students apply what they are learning in school to real-life applications, thinking critically about current issues, and honing their communication skills. Students on our team work hard, give up countless hours on their weekends to compete, and constantly push themselves to achieve at higher levels; however, we couldn't do what we do without the support of our friends, family, and community.

Over the 2017-2018 season, we ranked 3rd in our NSDA district, reached a team strength of 201, earned 69 new NFL degrees, welcomed 24 new members, and earned 7,097 NFL points collectively.  We are excited to continue growing and providing more opportunities to our team members and community!
