Coaches and teams,


Want to know how teams advance?  How awards are determined? How to have a fun season?


Visit the Challenge Judging page. Great FAQ section that explains advancement and awards.


Attend a coach’s workshop. View upcoming workshops.


My favorite - Volunteer to judge at a tournament.  Volunteering to judge gives you a behind the scenes view of judging that will dramatically help your team. You can volunteer at any tournament your team is not competing.  Most championship level teams have coach’s that volunteered to judge. It’s fun and rewarding. It’s also the best coach’s training.
