FREE VIRTUAL Coaches Workshop

To all coaches,

  Please come join us and experience a helpful training session of how to deal with a group of kids and guide them to a successful Odyssey season.  It’s absolutely FREE and can be done in your pajamas from your couch!!  We have lots of experienced folks ready to help guide you and your team on its journey through this experience that is Odyssey of the Mind.

We offer a training session that will go through the ins and outs of the program. The training provides in depth information into coaching, dealing with teams, understanding the basics of the program, a guide to layout the year, how a tournament day works, and other questions you might find yourself asking. We’ll be sure to have a Q&A session with the group so everyone can ask and share anything that comes up.
