January TBA 2019 1-4 Location Capistrano Valley High School

This Instant Challenge Team Workshop gives Teams a chance to practice the Instant Challenge Skills they’ve been learning in a non-competitive environment.

It’s all fun, and helps teams figure out what they do well, what they need to work on and helps relieve some of the Tournament Day jitters of entering the Instant Challenge Room for the first time!

Learn from watching other Teams solve the same Challenges and get feedback from other TMs.
