Word from the AD
The 2020-2021 season of creativity is in full swing! Lots of amazing things are happening all over northern California in garages, on kitchen tables, in the middle of the family room….everywhere! We can’t wait to see what all the amazing Omers are developing RIGHT NOW!
Unfortunately we will not get to see it in-person but for the safety of all involved we are looking forward to seeing the one-of-a-kind solutions ONLINE! This season of firsts, NorCal is having the first ever NorCal All Region Showcase. This will give teams a chance to learn about the new platform and see what they can do with it before the teams compete in the NorCal State Association Online Tournament in April. This season teams will not get the opportunity to see each other in person but following World Finals all the videos will be available for viewing by all.
Coaches training is wrapping up in December. Thank you to all that have participated in the training to date and we look forward to seeing the rest of you at our last training webbing. Additionally, mark those calendars for January 21st for a one time only webbing to help your team prepare to submit their solutions, paperwork, and additional information, along with details on how spontaneous will be working in the new platform. Don’t miss out! Also, be sure an use all the resources available to you on the norcalodyssey.org website and the training site. It’s all there for you to use!
We know this is a unique season of firsts and trying new things so please reach out if you have any questions or need support. Our regional directors are amazing and are always available to assist. , or feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As they say, “we are all in this together.”
Most importantly have fun and enjoy the journey with your students of creativity and imagination. They got this! We all get the best seats in the house, literally in the house, to see all the beyond the box thinking.
Happy holidays to all from all of us in NorCal Odyssey and be safe.
NorCal Association Director
