The Novice Mentor Committee connects its members and varsity volunteers with novices from any school for hybrid opportunities throughout the year.
Novice debaters are eligible for a Novice Mentor hybrid if they are not in the top 20 on the NOTY board and are not on a team that finished the last season within the top 5 on the COTY board. There are no restrictions on varsity debaters offering hybrids.
If you are a novice who would like to request a Novice Mentor hybrid, or a varsity who would like to offer to hybrid with a novice this season, please fill out this form to do so. We’ll contact you when a hybrid becomes available!
