Woodbury Speech Audition Application
What is the Woodbury High School Speech Team?
The first thing you should know about our team is that it is just that: a team. Unlike clubs, we ask for regular commitments from you, both during the week for practice and on most Saturdays for tournaments. And above all, we ask for each member to act like a great teammate. If having fun and being part of a team culture sounds like it suits you, then we encourage you to audition.
Will COVID Impact Speech?
Speech will happen even if COVID poses challenges to meet in person. All speech practices, tournaments, and events can be run virtually. While we don't know what this season will fully look like, we plan to have a full season. We will start virtually, and will continue this way until we have permission to meet in person. Accommodations will be made throughout the season. Safety and health are top priority.

Please describe your schedule during a "typical" week Mondays-Fridays between 3-9PM. Please list each day and describe your availability for each.

We (student and parent/guardian) have read over the team schedule and understand the necessary commitment it would take to be on the Woodbury High School Speech team. We understand that this is a TEAM and not a club. We will also be at the team/parent meeting if the student makes the team. Students must have the required signatures to be considered for the team.
