We are an all-volunteer organization dedicated to Odyssey of the Mind in CT


Judge and Volunteer Deadline is approaching!

Coaches — February 8th is the deadline to register your team’s judge and volunteer. Avoid financial penalties by registering them or provide your membership information to them so they may do it directly. You can confirm their status by using the judge and volunteer check feature (here.) CTOM is 100% volunteer run and a successful tournament depends on this support. Thank you!

Snow Day Policy: 

CTOM has established a snow day policy:  If there is a snow storm on March 16th, CTOM will hold the competition on March 17th. A snow day is defined as a “state closure”.  So if we have a foot of snow but the state is open we will still have the competition on the planned day – March 16th, otherwise the competition will be on March 17th. If the state is also closed on March 17th the state competition will be canceled. Policies and additional details will be communicated to all coaches near the end of February.

Tournament Registration is open

Tournament registration is now open and accepting teams. Coaches should register their teams using the membership number supplied by the town or school coordinator.  Refer to the “Register->Your Team”, in the menu above, to register for State Finals. Pay close attention to the critical dates and our payment policy! Please contact the Association Director if you have questions.
