Mission Model Building Session

We will also be hosting a Mission Model build during the event. The models we build will be used around MD at qualifiers and the state championship. This is a great time to network with other coaches. Team members are also welcome to come and practice building the Mission Models for this season. A Master Builder will be around to help make sure your models are build completely as specified and can explain any nuances of the models.

A more detailed description of the breakout sessions and workshops can be found in the attached Coaches Conference Agenda 2019.

We hope to see you there!
