Spontaneous Workshop – Space still available November 5th

Coaches and competitors,

There is still space available to join our group of experienced volunteers for some spontaneous practice.  This is a great opportunity to gain exposure to competition ready problems and judges.   The problems will challenge all age groups and each problem has a very different set of challenges to solve it.

 

Spontaneous is a large scoring component and teams that regularly practice solving problems tend to do much better on competition day.   We offer these workshops to help coaches and teams prepare for competition day and the challenges that are ahead of them.

2017 Calendar Changes!

The 2017 Georgia Odyssey Calendar is finally coming together.  We have finalized dates and locations.  We have changed the North Georgia Tournament date and Location from the initial release due to conflicts with a large event.

 

Sign up is available now for the NEW coaches workshops AND In depth Workshop.

 

Spontaneous Workshop registration will open on October 1st.   Remember, the spontaneous workshops have limited space and we cannot add any teams to a session once it is full.   We suggest you sign up early to reserve your space now.

State Finals Schedule

The State Finals Competition Schedule is now available to be viewed. Due to the complex nature of the schedule and many conflicts teams are having with other activities it is very possible the schedule may be altered some in the next week to adjust as best we can for any additional conflicts that may occur.

 

 

 

If your team has a serious conflict that needs addressing, please email: [email protected]

Please explain the situation in detail with all pertinent information and we will do our best to address the scheduling conflict.
