WE ARE SO EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THAT ODYSSEY OF
THE MIND WILL BE HAPPENING THIS YEAR!
SO GET YOUR TEAMS READY!
August 27, 2020
We are thrilled that we have teams who want to participate this year and are looking forward to having them in the program. Our Board Members feel like we have been right in the middle of a spontaneous problem this year……..and we have to look for creative solutions to many questions. (I guess you are never too old for Odyssey!) We have been busy coming up with solutions to make this year successful and fun.
Currently, we plan on having an in-person tournament. We feel that team members have a richer, more satisfying experience when they can perform in front of an audience. We will be making some changes in the tournaments in order to minimize the number of people in one area. Our regional tournament has been set for February 27, 2021 and the location will be announced at a later date due to the pandemic. Our state tournament has been set for March 27, 2021 at OSU in Stillwater.
Coaches training will also look different this year! These will be done through Zoom sessions periodically throughout the year. Our first Zoom session will be on October 24th at 9:00 am to approximately 10:30 am. We would like all coaches and co-coaches to join in the fun! The link will be provided to you at a later date. The focus of this meeting is to introduce you to the problems, show you how to register your teams, and help you get started in the coaching process. Please be sure to join because we will go over many details pertaining to this year.
I know you and your team are dying to know what the problems are this year! Each problem captain will present a synopsis of the problem, so have your notebook ready! This session will give you great ideas on how to present each problem to your kids so they may understand and choose one accordingly.
Let’s do this—-Be Prepared!
Gather your team members and get them excited.
