The Role of Coordinators


The Odyssey of the Mind Building Coordinator is the “behind the scenes” person ensuring the administrative side of the program gets done, but is the most important link between coaches, school districts and Colorado Odyssey events.  With the diligent support of Coordinators, coaches will feel prepared and your school’s teams will compete successfully with other teams at your Regional Tournament.


Your job as Coordinator is very important.  This job takes planning and attention to detail but it does not have to be a drain on your time.  The Coordinator can delegate Odyssey of the Mind tasks and/or ask for help from parents, school administrators, District Coordinators, State Directors or former Odyssey participants in order to stay on top of the responsibilities.


You will feel a tremendous amount of pride and success when your teams and coaches thank you for taking care of the details as they prepare to compete.


Share The Excitement!

OMer says he wants to help you publicize the tournament schedule for your school’s teams! Thank goodness he knows to point you in the right direction. It’s as easy as downloading the School Flyer, the School Brochure or both (see links below), then insert your school’s teams’ schedule in the space provided, and print or save for distribution. To easily find all your team’s long term performance times, go to your Regional Tournament schedule when it is posted and in the search box enter your membership number to see just your school’s teams’ schedule.
