To all new 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. 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.
We will be hosting a new coaches workshop on the South Side of the state too! Join us December 7th at Deerfield-Windsor at 9am in Albany.
The 2020 Odyssey Season is upon us and we are working with locations to schedule all of the wonderful events for the upcoming year. The calendar is being updated daily with additional events. We still have a regional tournament that we are trying to get settled and lots of workshops. Feel free to check out the schedule for the 2019-2020 upcoming year and be sure to mark your calendars! We hope to have the calendar complete in the next month.
