Academic Team Coaches Needed for Grades 4-5 and 7-8

We are in need of Academic Team coaches for both grades 4-5 and 7-8.  

Practices start in September for 7-8 and November for 4-5 with competitions in February and March.

Academic Team has become the state’s premier academic event, involving over 20,000 students, nearly 1200 schools, and thousands of coaches, administrators, parents and community leaders who see the rewards gained from encouraging academic performance through properly structured and professionally administered academic competition.

Practices give students the opportunity to enhance individual skills while contributing to a group endeavor. During the practice sessions, the team members learn the rules for different events and expand their knowledge of Kentucky’s Core Content through exploration, exemplary behavior, and improve statistics are given first consideration during the competition selection process.

Kentucky Governor’s Cup Competition – February and March

The Academic Team members participate in the following Governor’s Cup events sponsored by the Kentucky Association for Academic Competition (KAAC): Quick Recall (team competition); Written Composition (individual on-demand writing prompt); and Written Assessments (multiple choice in Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts; and Arts/Humanities). Students compete at the District level for the opportunity to advance to the Regional Competition.
