Debating in Adelaide, South Australia

We inspire self-confident people, engaged citizens and
leaders for a better world through debating.

Welcome

Debating SA is South Australia’s premier debating organisation. We provide supportive and challenging opportunities for school students of all abilities to debate in an exceptionally well-run, friendly, and professional program that is challenging, enjoyable, and most of all, fun.

With over 1400 students from more than 60 member schools forming nearly 300 teams, we operate South Australia’s largest, most diverse and most comprehensive interschool debating competition, held from May to September each year.

Innovative and school-friendly, the association promotes debating as an activity that is accessible to all students.

We are delighted and honoured to receive the patronage of Her Excellency The Honourable Frances Adamson AC, Governor of South Australia.
