Good First Motions


Welcome to Good First Motions! The links you see above show our downloadable bank of motions.

Now, why is this a must-have for practicing debate skills across motions?

  • Preparation for NSDC and other major tournaments
  • Perfect for both beginners and advanced debaters
  • Suitable for debate clubs that are starting out

For beginners, the concepts used in these motions are usually seen later on in more complex motions, just with a spin or a blend with other motions. Mastering these motions will make you powerful in just about any motion!

For more advanced debaters, this is great because major tournaments usually have accessible motions in their preliminary rounds, and having a good grasp of those would guarantee your break.

Happy practicing, and don’t forget to share!
