Odyssey of the Mind students meet before or after school, depending on the team. Once a student is selected for a team, they cannot be replaced by someone else, so it is important they stay committed to the program the entire year. Our Odyssey of the Mind "season" begins the first week in January. Students meet once a week from September to January, then twice during the week and one weekend day, depending on the team from January to as late as May. There will be a maximum of seven team members. Teams compete at tournaments in two different divisions, Primary (non competitive, but still attend the Tournament, Grade 2 only) Division I (Grades 3-5), and Division II (Grades 6-8).
Primary teams (K-1) have a different format and schedule. They will meet once per week for an hour after school at the Primary campus. They do not participate in any tournaments.
More information to follow Tournament dates are in late February (on a Saturday) for Regionals, and the middle of April (plan on practices during spring break) for State. The team will spend the majority of the school year coming up with a solution .
