Think you’re really being helpful by interfering with the team’s solution?  Read this article and revisit your thinking.  Why interfering isn’t helping the team!


Need to ask a specific question about the challenge – that is called a CLARIFICATION?  You have 10, so why not use them! Go to and select Challenge Program and then Clarifications…then you select your team’s challenge!  The deadline to submit a clarification is January 30th.

 Team Manager Tournament Boot Camp (training) 2020

The second of our two team manager trainings is vastly different than the New Team Manager training.  Team Manager Tournament Boot Camp is critical for all team managers – new or experienced.  Come and discuss your team’s challenge with the state’s Affiliate Challenge Masters.  Ask your questions, listen to others ask theirs.  To ensure your team is not misinterpreting the challenge, it is best for you to attend this training.  Team Members (of any team) are not allowed to attend even if they are a co-manager on another team.

WHERE?  The 2021 training will all be online
