Instant Challenge Blitz = IC Skillz + IC Scrimmage
This event is your team’s best chance to get great IC practice and pointers from experts before the tournament. You do not want to miss this!
Your team will choose one 2 hour+ Saturday session. On Saturday, the team will rotate through 3 IC rooms, each with a different type of challenge: Performance, Task and Hybrid. In each rotation, the team will have the full attention of 1 experienced challenge expert. They will receive a skills tutorial relating to that challenge type, followed by an opportunity to use those skills to solve a challenge. Afterwards, the team will receive critical feedback from the challenge expert. Each rotation is 40 minutes with a 5 minute passing period.
Skills taught will include:
General IC Information including Parts of a Challenge, roles, team member strengths and weaknesses, scoring, teamwork, risk-reward, what creativity really means.
Task IC Skills – types of task ICs, use of materials, risks and choices, gotcha tips and roles.
Performance IC Skills – characterization, storylines, what to avoid and acting pointers.
Each team must be accompanied by 1 adult, 2 adults max per team. Since the rotations are private, we will allow video recording.
Teams will register for 1 session. When a session fills up, registration will close for that session. Payment is incorporated in the registration process. If payment is not processed in 3-4 hours, the registration will automatically be deleted and the space opened up for another team.
The fee is $25/Team (not per team member.)
