Traditional State Finals Results

We’d like to thank every team that competed in our In person State Finals on Saturday April 10th. The entire tournament was a huge success and everyone was very respectful of the additional safety precautions. It took the cooperation of every last person in attendance to make the tournament a success!

Our Virtual tournament is now in the judging Stage and we’re just as excited for all of our virtual teams too!

2021 Georgia Odyssey Pins!

Hey OMers,

We’re going virtual with all of our souvenir sales from now on!

Even more fun, we’re releasing the 2021 pin collection just in time for Valentines day! Be sure to like our facebook page and you can see us release all of the pins for sale LIVE on Sunday (Valentines day) at 3pm!

Souvenirs

Hey everyone,

We’re selling souvenirs this year on the website! We’ve now made getting your Georgia Odyssey souvenirs even easier and you can do it before the tournament! With how crazy this year is and the social distancing measures, tournaments may look a little different. Our goal is to provide as much flexibility as possible in every way we can.

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.
