Resource Package

We have given all current member schools access to the Resource Package through the end of our fiscal year in July 2020.

About the Resource Package

The NSDA Team Resource Package offers the best resources around for member coaches and competitors (debators, interpers, extempers and more) all for one low price. This exhaustive list of amazing videos, classes textbooks, and other items available to you and your team!


    • Coaches, educators, and students gain access to resources curated by experts at the NSDA and successful educators across the country.

What Members Say

Allows students to navigate it well – much of the initial learning can be done by them on their own, which leaves coaches free to focus attention on higher level teaching and coaching.

The textbooks and access to Nationals videos are especially useful for my team!

Melissa Garlock

Palmer HS, Colorado Grande

Video archive of final rounds and excellent models of each event. I start every unit I teach with my beginners with examples from NSDA finals.  I also LOVE that there is representation for women, people of color, wonderful diversity so that over the course of my semester of examples my kids see high school kids who look like them doing speech or debate at a high level of excellence.
