3 Steps to Paying Membership Fees:

Each group will need to complete ALL the fee steps to be considered fully registered to participate at regional, state, and world competitions.

National Membership – Step 1

Purchase a world membership from Creative Competitions, Inc. for $135.00 .  The membership contact receives a membership packet containing the current year’s problems, curriculum materials for teachers and the Program Guide.

Purchase National Membership

Association Membership – Step 2

On July 21st,  2018, the Calomer State Board voted to divide the state of California into two separate associations due to growth and development of the Odyssey of the Mind.  The NorCal and SoCal associations function as two completely separate associations.  The purchase of an association membership is the second step to getting your season started.

Purchase a association membership. The state membership will register your group at the association level.  These funds are used to run an association tournament, train officials, and maintain the program in NorCal or SoCal California Association.

Each association has it’s own website that you will need to visit to pay your State Association fees.


Those sites will be active soon.

Regional Membership – Step 3

Each team competing in a Regional Tournament pays a registration fee per team. This fee is paid in December or January of the competition year when the team registers for the tournament.
