Benefits of Affiliation



Affiliation in NCFCA offers eligible students the privilege of competing in NCFCA sanctioned events during the year. This includes all Regional Qualifiers held in the region of affiliation, all National Opens, and (if qualified) the Regional Invitational and National Championship. For more information on eligibility, click here.

Research Tools

To assist NCFCA families with developing excellence in academic research and debate, each Affiliate family receives complimentary access to both the Team Policy and Lincoln-Douglas editions of The Source, the official NCFCA debate sourcebook, as well as the opportunity to subscribe to LexisNexis, the online research database, at a fraction of the normal cost.

Resolution Selection

Because NCFCA understands the importance of homeschool parents to have a voice in the subject matter that their students are studying, Affiliate Families may also cast a vote for the upcoming season’s Debate resolutions. This voting process takes place in the spring. For more information about the process of choosing a resolution, click here.

Electing State Representatives

Another important advantage to being an Affiliate is the right to participate in the process of choosing your State Representative. NCFCA trusts and relies on the knowledge and judgment of Affiliates to recognize leadership and experience in their area.

"I've been involved with NCFCA for eight years, as both a competitor and a coach. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities the league has provided. Debate was literally life-changing for me, sharpening my reasoning and communication skills and setting me on a course for my current job as a teacher. I truly believe I wouldn't be where I am today if NCFCA hadn't challenged and inspired me during high school.

As a coach, I encourage homeschooled students to participate in NCFCA events, regardless of their natural inclinations toward speech and debate. I've seen novices develop confidence and excitement about public speaking, while more experienced students gain a polish and skill level that would be impossible without high-level competition. Not only do they get excited about communication, they are also learning critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, and research skills. I am so grateful that NCFCA makes these unique opportunities available to homeschoolers!"
