Odyssey for 2021-2022

Coaches Training Online: This year, all coach trainings will be via Zoom. ALL coaches, experienced or new, are required to go through the online training modules. These self-paced modules can be completed at your pace. A short welcome video, then an online course. The online course can be completed in one sitting or can be broken up into smaller chunks. We estimate that completing all modules should take 1-2 hours. Click HERE to take the course. Once there, click on Redwood Region to sign up – Good luck!

Coach Resources Online: Once you complete the online modules, you will get access to some EXCELLENT coach resources. These will be on the same training site as the online modules.

Other Resources: Go through our regional website’s Coaching Section. It is designed to provide specific support for each phase of your coaching jpourney. Veen more resources can be found on the Norcal website under the Coach tab.

Memberships: -Still two types of memberships this year, Traditional and Virtual, but significant restrictions have been applied to the Virtual membership. The details about these new memberships can be found at the national website, or the NorCal association’s page about memberships (super-helpful!).

Live ZOOMs: Coach Training: After completing the online courses, attend a coach training Zoom that goes more in depth about getting started as a coach. These Zooms are regional and should be approx. 1-1.5 hours in length. Two dates to choose from: October 16th, 3-4 P.M. or November 10th, 7-8 P.M. To get the Zoom link for this regional coach training, email redwood@norcalodyssey.org at least one hour before the scheduled start time.

Additional Zooms and Webinars: There will be additional optional webinars and zooms focusing on specific subjects such as Style, Spontaneous, and Breaking Down the LT Problem.
