Welcome To


Super Debate is more than just a debate club. We’re a movement, championing the art of intellectual discourse as a tool for community engagement, personal development, and social impact.

By creating a platform for people to engage in friendly yet competitive debate, we’re fostering a space for critical thinking, knowledge exchange, and public speaking skills development.

Why Should You Debate?

Empathy Through Understanding

Debate requires participants to explore and engage with different viewpoints, promoting empathy, open-mindedness, and respect for opposing ideas.

Cultivate an Informed World

Participate in meaningful discussions that foster a culture of open dialogue, intellectual growth, and mutual understanding, contributing to a more compassionate and informed world.

Own Your Arguments

Debate demands intellectual honesty and the ability to defend one's stance with evidence, resulting in a more informed, responsible, and accountable society.

Empower Your Communication

Master critical thinking, problem-solving, and persuasive communication skills through debate. These skills transfer to various aspects of life, enhancing personal and professional growth.

Discover Our Engaging Debate Format

 

Super Debate offers a streamlined, semi-structured format for engaging two-person debates. Drawing from traditional competitive styles, our 30-minute rounds keep discussions focused and accessible.

With flexibility at its core, our format empowers community members to judge and score debates. Customize your experience by extending speeches or involving extra debaters, ensuring lively and enriching discussions for all.

Anyone Can
Judge Debates


Each spectator can judge each debater, giving them 3-5 points for their performance in each of these 5 categories:

  1. Organization and Clarity
  2. Use of Argumentation and Logic
  3. Use of Examples and Evidence
  4. Persuasiveness of Communication
  5. Overall Performance
The higher total scoring debater (15-25) wins the debate!
