Tips on Starting a Club?

fourXsquaredfourXsquared 47 replies23 threads Junior Member
I'm starting high school this year, and my school doesn't have a speech and debate club. Speech is my FAVORITE club and I honestly don't know what I would do without it. I know that it's possible to compete individually(which is my last resort), but I and tons of other students really want a speech club! I've looked into trying to start one, but there doesn't seem to be a teacher that wants to coach. I have one teacher in mind whom my middle school coach told me to ask, however I don't have her as an actual teacher. I was wondering if it would seem rude to ask her at our freshman orientation/open house or in one of the few first days of school. Any other tips would be helpful in starting a speech club! Thanks!

    I'd give it about a week or two of school and then ask. He or she is going to have a lot on their plate already with school just beginning. Let the hype of a new school year settle down first. Maybe talk to your GC if things don't work out. And really, who says you need a teacher to start a club. Have all who want to join go to a pre-designated spot and elect one of your own as a coach. Or try to recruit an interested upper-class man.
