All students are invited to audition for the Speech Team. The season
begins with open auditions in October for all fourteen of the IHSA
events: the acting duets, the interpretations, the readings, the comedic
speeches, the oration, the impromptu events and the radio speaking.
Students are guided to the category in which they would have the most
success. Rehearsals begin in mid-October and continue through the
season. The Junior Varsity attends speech meets on Saturdays from
December through January. The Varsity meets begin in November. Anyone on
the team is eligible to make his or her way on to the Varsity team, the
Conference team and/or the Regional team and advance to the state
championships in February.
Rehearsal times are posted by the coaches every Monday morning for
the week. It is the responsibility of the student to sign up for two
time slots of their choosing in their particular category with the coach
they are assigned to for that week.
