Coaches Training - MANDATORY FOR ALL This Year (2017-2018)
All coaches, experienced and new, MUST attend a coaches training this fall. Each team must have at least 1 coach attend training; this does not have to be the main coach. Assistant coaches are fine. If a team does not have one of its coaches attend a training, it runs the risk on receiving no score at the regional tournament
New Coaches 9:00 A.M. -3:00 P.M.  
The morning is designed to familiarize new coaches with the Odyssey of the Mind Program. The focus is on starting a team, team-building during those first keys meetings, and how to choose a long term problem to solve. Participants will experience some fun spontaneous problems and hands on activities that they can try out later with their teams.  
Experienced Coaches 12:45 P.M. - 3:00 P.M.
Experienced Coaches and Redwood Problem Captains and Board Members join us for info about current rules and procedures, as well as breakout sessions that are Long Term problem-specific.
Training Dates:
Sept. 30 & Nov.11 - Hidden Valley Ele., 3435 Bonita Vista Lane, Santa Rosa, CA
Dec. 2 - Mary E. Silveira Ele., 375 Blackstone Drive, San Rafael, CA
