I’ve been a Lego League coach since 2007. My first year was a disaster as coach and I vowed never to coach again. Somehow, I was coaxed into coaching the next year, but as an assistant. Having had a successful year, I coached my own team again in 2009. The team came in 3rd out of 160 teams in the State of Minnesota.
I wrote about the history of my coaching in my first post.
As I was coaching that last team, I formulated some information that I know would have helped me in my rookie year. This year I have another rookie team made up of three team members from last year and five new recruits. As we progress through the season, I plan to document some of the information that helped me so you can build a successful Lego League team. If you live in Minnesota, though, you’re not allowed to use any of my tips against me.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I hope to include all the information you need, but I’m sure I’ll miss something. So please ask!
