Spontaneous & Skill Building Workshops

December 10th, 2017 By Calla

Come enjoy and learn creative problem solving skills with challenging hands on and verbal hands on problems. Registration will open on Dec. 15th at 12 noon and teams can choose from one of four 90 minute sessions. Teams, coaches and parents will get an inside look of spontaneous competition while learning new approaches to solving those unique problems. Team members will develop out of the box thinking, identify different uses for common materials and teamwork skills. Teams also will learn the importance of taking a minute or two to brainstorm ideas and develop a plan to solve the problem. Visit the event information on our Calendar menu to register and learn more.
