Welcome to the DAV Website
The DAV is a non-profit association which exists to promote debate. It is the peak debating body in Victoria and runs large competitions for adults and for schools across Victoria. It provides training and resources for debaters, teachers and adjudicators.

The DAV acknowledges the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the lands on which we hold our programs. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

Following an Executive Visions meeting in 2001, the DAV is proud to announce its new Vision statement to guide the organisation in its current and future endeavours.
