Forensics

Coach: Linda Tyranski

Forensics is an interscholastic competition in speech and theatre. There are 18 different categories, from reading poetry to giving a speech or acting out a scene with a friend. The Wayland Forensics Team meets three days each week after the academic day.  On the other two alternating days, the team will have AAP during athletics practice time.  If students would like to participate in a winter sport and Forensics, they may make arrangements with Coach Linda Tyranski to practice outside of sports time.
