Speech and Debate SWAT is a homeschool speech & debate club serving families in the Greater Dayton, Ohio area. We are a collection of Christian homeschool families who see the benefit of speech and debate in training our children to use Christian character and become the leaders of tomorrow. We offer classes and coaching in both speech and team policy debate beginning in September and continuing through May. We serve homeschool families in southwest Ohio including the Greater Dayton area, Springfield, Tipp City, and Xenia. In addition to our classes, our students compete in speech and debate tournaments each spring through the Christian Communicators of Ohio (CCO) chapter of Christian Communicators of America (CCA).
