Groves Debate Team

Groves hosted The Groves Falcon Invitational, the largest debate invitational held by a high school in Michigan, on Nov. 13-14, 2020. The Groves Falcon Invitational tradition began in 1989, but this year's tournament was the first to be held virtually!

This year's Falcon Invitational featured teams from Michigan, Mississippi, California, Florida, Illinois and New Jersey in three genres of debate-policy, public forum and Congressional debate. 

The team is coached by Co-Directors of Debate Ryan Nierman and John Lawson, and Assistant Director Shannon Nierman.
