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.
Register for your national membership or contact your Regional Director to receive our handy dandy folder complete with everything you need to run the program at your school: brochure, poster and a USB drive with problems, flyers, sign up sheet, photos, presentations and more!
