Coaches' Training 

Spend the day learning the skills of coaching an Odyssey of the Mind team from seasoned program veterans!  This training is invaluable for those embarking on their first year of coaching a team, or those back for their second year. Coaches will come away with a better appreciation for what their teams will experience and how to provide support to their students the Odyssey way. Great for new coaches or those who want a refresher.
