“I didn't do Ziggy in my first year of debate, last year. I wish I had! I did Ziggy this year, and it was phenomenal! Nothing can prepare you more for competition than doing a practice round every week! I was able to hear and prepare for cases outside of my club, try new things, run new cases, and get confident with the resolution - all before the first qualifier and continuing into the tournament season with Spring Ziggy. I saw a tremendous and continual improvement in my performance and speaker skills, and I attribute a large part of that to the practice I got from Ziggy. I will definitely be doing Ziggy for all of my remaining debate years and recommending it to everyone I talk to!”
–Anna Zomer
“…my debate club meets only once every week. I didn't want to debate only once every week. I wanted something that would take me to the next level. Ziggy debate was the perfect tool to add to my experience. With the extra debate rounds under my belt I am able to debate much more confidently and effectively. Thanks Ziggy!”
–Stephen Peel
“The practice debates Ziggy offers in the comfortable atmosphere of your home develop the knowledge and skill needed for competition and understanding of the resolution, all at an extremely affordable price! The quality of experience we gained through Ziggy and the professional service demonstrated was absolutely superb.”
–Hannah Vecseri
“Ziggy was a fantastic way to start the year, something that I hope to do every single season for the remainder of my debate experience in the NCFCA. The ability to talk and debate with national-level debaters from other regions all across the nation is unparalleled; and long before the national opens or anything else.  Ziggy is a unique opportunity…”
–Caleb Scott
“I am thankful for Ziggy on-line debate. In our earlier years of involvement with debate, we would have to travel for hours and spend days at practice tournaments in order for our kids to practice. Ziggy on-line debate has saved us a lot of time and $.”
–Tracy Everetts
“Ziggy Debate offers a fantastic start to the debate season as it applies to both novice and experienced debaters.  It closely emulates a practice tournament, and it's a fun way to meet competitors outside of your region!”
–Avery Robinson
“Isaac, you did a fantastic job coordinating all of this, and you were very helpful and responsive whenever we had a question. Ziggy Debate is a great idea - what a wonderful way to give competitors a forum in which to practice prior to the competition season. The knowledge and insights gained on the resolution, the ability to debate people from other regions, the chance to try out original and modified cases - these are just some of the benefits we have experienced. Thank You!!!”
–Victoria Ostertag
“…last year I didn't do Ziggy. I'm glad I did it this year! Any practice you can fit in before the heat of competition begins is worth the time and the effort. Ziggy is the perfect way to practice with cases and arguments from all over the country--not just your own region--so you can be prepared for anything that comes your way. Over the course of the Ziggy season, I've gotten to hear a wide variety of arguments against my case that I would have never thought of myself, and this has helped me understand where my case is strongest and weakest. I have also greatly improved my speaking style, particularly cross-examination, which has always been troublesome. If you are looking for a way to strengthen your case or try a new case idea, this is definitely the place to do it. Sign up! You won't regret it!”
–Elisa Ron
“Ziggy Online Debate is a great tool for the students to improve debating skills and to meet other students outside of their own club and region.  It is interesting, as it adds another dimension to debating and may sharpen some debate skills not usually used…“
–Anonymous
“Participating in Ziggy Online Debate is a great way to practice debating before the tournament season begins. The debates are affordable and convenient because they take place at home. Also, because the debates are conducted over the internet, debaters can focus…more on improving reasoning and argumentation.”
–DJ Franklin
“Ziggy Online Debate has enabled me to grow and learn about the resolution before tournament season.”
–Isaiah Patton
“We have a small club and my daughter is our only LDer. Ziggy online debate was her only way to get practice before the tournament season. For us it was invaluable!  Thank you for the service you provide to our homeschool debate community! It is affordable and the experience you provide is well worth the cost in terms of time and money to participate.”
–L. Lueken
“I would highly recommend Ziggy Online Debate to debaters at all skill levels. Preseason debates are a great way to get ready for the competitive season! In addition, because this program is available to all regions, debaters  get exposure to a plethora of different styles and arguments. …Ziggy Online Debate provides an easy and organized way to develop skills, meet other debaters, and learn.”
–Melissa Lueken
“Ziggy is great for long-distance partners to get a chance to work together before the season starts, and especially first-timers whether they are long distance or not!  I have two sons that are doing TP for the first time, and both have long-distance partners, so I'm hoping I can sign them up!”
