Speech & Debate

Speech & Debate Team:  The SOCES Speech and Debate Team has been one of the longest and most continuously operated teams at the school. The mission of the team is to create a positive, safe, learning environment to encourage students to improve their communication and public speaking skills. They then take these skills and compete at local, regional, state, and national tournaments. Our program has helped hundreds of students gain confidence in their speaking, communication, and leadership skills. In addition, our team has fostered a strong tradition of having alumni come back and help coach our team and also become speech and debate coaches at high schools in our region. Our team is a part of the Tri-County Forensic League, the National Speech and Debate Association, and the California High School Speech Association.
