Coaches Corner

A great need for all Odyssey of the Mind programs is for parents, guardians, teachers, community leaders, and adults (ages 18+)  to serve as coaches and/or volunteers.

Coaches are responsible for facilitating the team experience and we have been fortunate at WASD to have several parents over the years who have volunteered to serve in this capacity.

If you or someone you know, would like to coach or volunteer, we recommend that you attend the NCPA Coaches Training on Saturday, November 9th at Williamsport HS from 9 AM-1 PM.

All coaches and volunteers must be approved by the WASD Board of Education and have all 3 updated clearances as required by WASD school policy and OM policy.
