SEDA has frequently held a tournament in British Parliamentary style to act as the qualifier for Oxford cup, a tournament for grades 9-12 at the national level. With more national tournaments being held in BP style, we at SEDA want to ensure our students are adapting quickly to the changes in Canadian debate. To encourage our members to compete in BP style tournaments, we are now offering multiple tournaments and programs with a BP focus.
What events will cover BP?
- Saskatoon debate camp: along with other new classes, this year’s debate camp will feature two classes dedicated to British Parliamentary along with the option to debate in BP rather than national’s style. Find out more about debate camp >
- USDS-SEDA BP debates: The University of Saskatchewan Debate Society is teaming up with SEDA to bring back our BP pro-am. University students and SEDA members are all welcome to compete in this upcoming event. Find out more about the Pro-am >
- BP qualifier: our annual BP tournament that acts as the qualifier to Oxford cup. Find out more about the qualifier >
SEDA is also hoping to offer several online lessons for coaches looking to learn about teaching BP, as well as several more workshops for clubs or regions looking to learn this style. Contact us to book a free workshop or to organize additional programming.
