Central Region

Welcome to the 2020-2021 Arizona Central Region Odyssey of the Mind. We look forward to another exciting year in the Central Region. The Central Region is made up of Maricopa, Gila & Pinal counties. Please remember to refer to this website on an ongoing basis during the year.  This information is meant to assist coaches & coordinators. Additional helpful emails will be sent to registered coaches throughout the year & as the tournament gets closer. (Due to some email security setups, these emails may accidently be sent to a spam file. Please check spam files periodically.)  


As of this date, Arizona Odyssey of the Mind is going ahead with plans to hold onsite Regional Tournaments & a State Tournament.   We are committed to keep people safe and the board will continue to monitor the COVID -19 status with a final decision about the safety of onsite tournaments to be made on January 31, 2021.  If it is determined that it is not safe to proceed, each team that is registered will be able to change to the Virtual Tournaments.  Remember that final payment for team registrations are due by February 15, 2021.  This will allow schools/organizations to reserve payment until after this final decision.
