What is Mars Hill?

Mars Hill is a Christian, homeschool speech and debate club for students ages 8 to 18! We are a parent-led and parent/homeschool alumni coached club meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona with members from across the Phoenix metro area. We meet once a week in the evening from August through April. 

The parents of Mars Hill have seen first-hand the incredible impact speech and debate has had on their children.  In addition to developing their rhetoric and research skills, we have witnessed this endeavor grow their faith and character.  The benefits are innumerable.

What do we offer?

Mars Hill offers coaching in:

  • 12 Speech Events
  • Team Policy Debate (2 person teams)
  • Lincoln Douglas Debate (individual competitor)
  • Parliamentary Debate (2 person teams)
In addition, our students develop strong friendships and faith relationships through their participation in speech and debate.
