NCOME Buddy Coach Volunteer Signup
Hello Experienced Odyssey of the Mind Coach!

First, I want to thank you for the work you’ve done coaching a team. As a coach for nine years, I appreciate the task of managing an OotM team (and parents!).

NCOM, Eastern Region needs your help. Every year, we hear feedback from new coaches about the steep learning curve they go through and the difficulty of not knowing where to find helpful resources. This year, we want to help new coaches by starting a Buddy Coach network.

So what would this program look like? You would sign up to be a contact resource for 1-2 new coaches in the Eastern Region, answering questions from a new coach concerning things like spontaneous, team dynamics, competition day logistics, etc. We would provide training resources and materials. You would not be an assistant coach or be expected to run extra spontaneous sessions!! Our goal is to connect your experience with those who need it most. Thinking back to my first year coaching, I would have loved to ask someone about what each form meant, what is the difference between problem 1 and problem 3, what exactly is style, etc. Time commitment would be minimal - most likely just answering a few emails or phone calls during the year.

If you’re interested, please fill out this survey. I’ll contact you with further information.

Again, thank you for your help!
