NITOC Boot Camp

Practice Round Postings

San Diego, California - May 24th-26th, 2018

Presented by NIHD Debate Camps

The National Institute for Homeschool Debate (NIHD) is excited to announce that the NITOC Boot Camp is back! Directed by Attorney and Coach Griffith William Vertican, our now three-day camp is proven to provide the best prep possible for success at NITOC in Team Policy, Lincoln-Douglas, and Parliamentary debate.

Over the last four years, no one has prepped more semi-finalists and national champion debaters than NIHD Camps.

This year, we are lining up an incredibly talented coaching pool that includes:

Attorney Griffith William Vertican: Griffith is the 2007 National Champion in collegiate debate, winning the NPDA national tournament. He is Head Coach of the VALOR Debate Club and his students won 1st place in Parli Debate at the 2013 National Championships, were ranked #1 in TP debate (Marton/Winchel), ranked #1 in LD (Buck) in 2015 and won the over NITOC tournament champion award in 2015 (Abel).
  • IP National champion and Top-ranked LD/TP/Parli Debater - Michael Tant
  • Top Ranked in IEs and Debate- Luke McConnell
  • They will be joined by other top alumni

Our methodology will be work-intensive with an emphasis on developing winning strategies against the top cases (we'll cover 10 -15 cases). During our strategy sessions, our lecturers will find you new arguments and evidence and will help you pre-prep rebuttals and cross-examination questions. You will have practice rounds with in-depth feedback and the optional chance to have your case vetted. Our goal is to maximize your final prep-time so that you are as prepared as possible to succeed at NITOC.
