Visit the register page to register for the Oct 26 Coach Training session 

Our first training session of the program year brings a completely new and revamped curriculum designed for coaches or for those considering coaching an Odyssey of the Mind team.

This year’s training will focus mostly on small group training. As opposed to the traditional large lecture-style Odyssey overview, most of the day will be spent in breakout sessions. 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.

Breakout Session Options (details):

  • Odds and Ends – The Recipe for Success (Mandatory for alll)
  • Odyssey 101 (Mandatory for new coaches, optional for all others)
  • Coaching Spontaneous
  • It’s All About Style
  • Think Like a Judge

Schedule for the day:
8:00am-8:30am – Check-in and a light breakfast
8:30am-8:50am – Welcome and introduction
9:00am-9:50am – Breakout session 1
10:00am-10:50am – Breakout session 2
11:00am-11:50am – Breakout session 3
12:00pm-12:30pm – Meet and greet with your problem captain

If you are an experienced coach, we hope that you will attend! Not only will your participation enrich the training experience for the newer coaches, but we also feel that this new training method will help you learn skills that can make your team(s) even more successful!
