  • FYI

    To be fair, we should probably tell you about the way a tournament runs

  • Most of our tournaments happen once a month at an after-school tournament. This involves a bus ride with people we enjoy talking to. We also compete at Broward Novice Champs (Districts) and Novice States, which are a couple of days long, and are at the end of the year.

  • Franklin Falcons Forensic TeamAside from winning, our philosophy is that talent is just talent, but work and integrity are essential. With those two qualities, anyone can find success in forensics. Therefore, EVERYONE can and should maximize his or her potential in forensics activities.

  • Remember Those People From the Beginning?They were all members of Speech & Debate in middle school and now have millions of dollars.

    With Speech and Debate you too could have success.
