The second training session of our 2020 program year will focus again on small-group training. You will have the opportunity to select which sessions you will attend, allowing you to customize your training and develop the skills that you feel you need.

In total, you will take three (3) classes, and each breakout session will last 60 minutes. All new coaches who did not attend the October training must take “Odyssey 101.” Aside from this, you have the choice as to which classes you will attend. In selecting your workshops, consider what skills you need to help make your team as successful as possible.
