Coaches Training

Welcome SoCal Odyssey Coaches!

All coaches must complete the online training modules and attend one mandatory live or in-person webinar in order for their team to compete at the regional tournament.

Online Coach Webinars (Attend One) Will Be Held On:


Regions will be organizing an in-person version of this webinar as well. Coaches need to attend an online or an in-person meeting.

Register for any of the three webinars.

Online Modules

To get your season started, an online coach training program has been developed with program information, coaching tools, and wisdom for your guidance. All coaches who have not completed this online training, new and experienced, will be required to complete the two elements of our online training program before they can register their team for the regional tournament.

A set of training modules will be available for our coaches who have more than 2 years coaching AND who have completed the new coach online modules previously. To get started, you will complete our online, self-paced training followed by a live webinar run by expert Odyssey volunteers.  You do not need to review the online self-paced training all at once, but it is important to complete the modules and take the check-in quizzes prior to attending the live webinar. This self-paced environment provides you flexibility while significantly shortening  the “in seat” time needed for the webinar.

To access your self-paced online training started follow these steps:

  1. Go to 
  2. Click on the Introduction Video to Coaches Training icon box and watch the video.
  3. Click Login to Enroll button
  4. Follow steps to Register
  5. Now that you are registered click on Introduction Video to Coaches Training to begin your online training.

There are two courses, a short video, and online course work in the program.  The online modules will take approximately an hour to complete. You do not need to complete it all at once, but you do need to complete it prior to the webinar.  

Once you have completed the modules, register for ONE live webinar. You only need to attend ONE of the following live webinars, so choose which date works best for you. The live webinars will be offered on the following dates via Zoom. 

2023-2024 – TBA

Recordings of last year’s (2022) Style, spontaneous, and paperwork webinars are available:

Welcome to the new season! We can’t wait to see the creative solutions your teams develop! We look forward to “seeing” you at a webinar soon! 

Be safe and enjoy a creative season!
