Every Odyssey of the Mind team must have at least one trained adult coach (18 years of age or older). Assistant coaches may also attend training. Please limit to 2 coaches per team attending training.
All coaches - new and experienced - must attend training every year or your team cannot participate in the Regional tournament. New coaches need to attend one of the all day Saturday training sessions (8:30 – 3:30). Experienced coaches need only attend a Saturday training session in the afternoon (12:30 – 3:30) or the evening session that is for experienced coaches ONLY.There is no cost for training and a continental breakfast and lunch is provided. Bring a pen/pencil and an empty binder for the materials that will be handed out. We will be selling practice problem books so you may want to bring some cash.

What if you are not sure you are ready to coach a team?
Simple, just attend a coaches training to learn more about the program. Then if you decide you do want to coach you will be trained and ready to go! Even if you don't have a team established yet you can attend training in anticipation of getting a team together. All it will cost you is one Saturday of your time.
