Beyond the


2021 Last Coach Training Webinar


NorCal Odyssey of the Mind News

Get Started – It’s not too late.
Coach Webinar Training Tuesday.

Hello OM Coach,

I hope that this message finds you all healthy and safe during these challenging times. Here are  a couple of important updates relating to Odyssey of the Mind for the 2020-21 season.

Coaches training is wrapping up! Don’t miss out! All coach training is being done online this season and you can do it from the comfort of you own home.  Tuesday, December 8th, at 7:00pm is the last NorCal Coach Training Webinar.  Sign up to attend TODAY, Prior to attending be sure to complete the self-paced online training modules as these courses are build upon each other and the webinar is the last training piece.  We would love to see you on TUESDAY.

Even if Tuesday is our last scheduled coach webinar to start the season, it’s not too late to form a team for this season! Although our last scheduled coach webinar is December 8th, it is possible to an additional date if needed. OM is one of the few extra curricular activities that students can successfully do virtually! If your school is not facilitating extra curricular activities, that’s fine as well. We have a new “virtual” membership option that allows students from anywhere to get together online and form a team without a school district or community group sponsorship. If you have questions about how to form and facilitate a team, please contact the Associated Director.

We know this journey is NEW but you are not in this alone. We have many resources available for coaches to have a successful online season. Please access them through our website:, coach tab, virtual journey tools link.

Please reach out to your regional director(s)  or me with any questions you may have. We are here to support you and your team(s) in a successful season! Feel free to forward the resources/links on to any interested parents and coaches.

Be Safe.
