Good morning Science Olympiad coaches!
Welcome to the Durham Regional Division B-C Science Olympiad tournament to be held on February 29, 2020 at Riverside High School!
In the next few weeks there will no doubt be many emails and communications about our tournament as we begin to finalize our plans. For now, I wanted to bring a few things to your attention:
We will hold a Coach Q&A session with Kim Gervase, the Director of NC Science Olympiad on Tuesday, January 28 from 4:30-5:30 at Riverside High School. If you can’t join us in person, you can join us by Zoom! https://dpsnc.zoom.us/j/478902471. This will be your chance to ask questions about the events, see the venue, and pick up tips from other coaches. I think folks have found this extremely helpful in the past. This will be open to Durham Regional coaches from Divisions A, B, and C.
We ask each team to recruit volunteers (at least 2) to help run events. Parents can’t run an event in which their own child is participating and we prefer volunteers to be at least high school age (above 18 years old is preferable). Please have your volunteers register on our volunteer registration page. Don’t wait on this! Our stress level is greatly reduced by seeing filled slots on the SignUpGenius!
I’m attaching the most recent early version of our schedules. Rooms will be added in the near future. Please note that Division B will run an XY schedule, because we currently have 28 teams registered for this tournament. Good news is we may get an additional bid to States because of the large number of teams competing in Division B.
I think that’s about it for the early news. Please let me know if you have questions! And, feel free to share this information with assistant coaches and parent assistants. I’ve included only the individuals that were listed as the head coach for each of our teams.
We look forward to seeing you on January 28 and then again on February 29!
Hope you are well! I wanted to be sure to let you know the date of our Durham Regional Division B & C Science Olympiad tournament, to be held this season on February 29, 2020 at Riverside High School in Durham, NC.
Our volunteers are what makes our tournament so successful. We literally could not do it without you. And, we hope we’ll be able to count on your support again this year. It’s never too early to sign up! To sign up, please visit our volunteer registration page. This year, our Division B (middle school) teams will be following an XY schedule, while our Division C (high school) will be following a traditional schedule. The draft schedules are attached here and are reflected in the SignUpGenius for volunteers.
As we approach the date of our tournament, you can learn more about our tournament at our Durham Regional Science Olympiad webpage, which will be updated regularly as we approach the date of our first tournament on March 2.
You are receiving this email because you are a member of the DPS Science Alliance or have indicated at some time (perhaps in the past) an interest in participating as a volunteer in our Durham Regional Science Olympiad tournament. If you are no longer in the area or wish to be removed from this list please respond to this email to let me know. If you can’t join us on February 29 (or even if you can), we welcome your involvement in our Division A Durham Regional Science Olympiad on March 21. You can sign up for that tournament here. For more information on the Durham Division A tournament, please contact Willow Alston-Socha.
Thanks again for your support of NC Science Olympiad. We look forward to seeing you in February!
