INTERESTED IN DESTINATION IMAGINATION?
FIND OUT MORE
After you attend an Awareness Meeting, learn more at an Orientation Session. We strongly recommended new team managers attend this prior to Team Manager Training.
Can't attend an Orientation session before Team Manager Training? We may have a PDF of the session here, in Toolbox 2.
FORM A TEAM
Teams can have 2-7 members. In most cases, the members can be from the same school or different schools. The members can be home-schooled. Members can all be in the same grade or different grades.
Ask friends of your child, ask the teachers for recommendations, ask members of your child's sports team, or ask at your place of worship.
RECRUIT A TEAM MANAGER
In our Region, Team Managers are usually parents, but they don't have to be. A Team Manager must be 18 years or older, and he/she facilitates the team meetings. We recommend that two adults team up as co-managers.
Our organization does a lot to support the Team Manager. Check out this page for the many ways we can help guide you through the season.
FIND A PLACE TO MEET
Teams usually meet once or twice per week. Often the meetings are held at the home of the Team Manager, but can be held elsewhere. Sometimes schools provide meeting space. Your team will need a space in which to store the materials they are using and the things (props, scenery, gadgets, costumes, etc.) that they make.
PURCHASE A TEAM NUMBER AND PROGRAM MATERIALS
Some schools and districts purchase these for teams. Check with your school representative before buying anything.
Team Registration information is found here.
Workshops are available for Team Managers as well as teams. The NExT region offers a variety of FREE training events for Team Managers and low-cost workshops for teams. Reserve your spot today!
