3 steps to register a team for 2016-2017 season:
Obtain a CCI membership number
Work with your local organization (school, youth group, etc) to REGISTER for a CCI membership (National level). Is is NOT usual for coaches or teams to pay for a CCI Membership. Your local organization usually pays for this membership.
Odyssey of the Mind is administered by Creative Competitions Inc. (CCI). This registration gives schools/organizations access to the 5 long term problems, one non-competitive primary problem, an Odyssey of the Mind Program Guide as well as the opportunity to enter official competitions. Cost is $135.00 for membership registration for your organization and it entitles you to field one team per problem, per division (total of 15 teams) If your organization has multiple teams, within the same division, competing in the same problem, you will need additional memberships. Paid membership with CCI yields a national registration number which is required for CTOM membership and to compete at tournament. Your local organization (school, youth group, church, etc) usually pays for this membership. Odyssey of the Mind registration form can be used to register your organization or contact CCI at 856-256-2797.
