"Like coaches across the country, I strive to search for challenging Spontaneous Problems that will prepare my teams for competition. It is a difficult process, as we all know. Last September we were so impressed with the Thinking Cap kit that we purchased one for each of the 22 teams in our district. Having coached 7 years, teams in all divisions, my HS team found completely new and relevant challenges in the Thinking Cap Kit. This team is no stranger to competition, competing at World Finals for the last 5 years, and they learned so much from the Problems in this Kit that I immediately purchased the follow up kit!"
Shauna Newman,, Coach Southlake Carroll Odyssey of the Mind,, Southlake, TX
“When Spontaneous Kits first became available I purchased one for my team and never looked back. The kits provide such benefit that I also purchase one for each of the 15-20 teams I Coordinate. The kits are up-to-date, original, extremely well organized and very thorough. They prepare teams well, are tremendous time-savers for coaches, and provide outstanding value for both brand new and experienced teams. Our Spontaneous Kit is now as integral a part of our coaches' tool box as duct tape and glue sticks!” Marti Atwater, Coach Forest Hills High School, Grand Rapids, MI
“The first year we bought the kits we had so much success selling them that we decided to try it again the following year. We had 100 available and they were so popular - actually sold like hot cakes - that we had to take orders to make more. The neat things about the kits is that they come with EVERYTHING a coach needs to run the problems (all three kinds) without having to worry about where to get the materials or finding the time to look the problems up! The coaches go crazy over the kits. This is true for the first time coaches as well as the long time coaches. In fact, the long time coaches can truly appreciate how valuable having a ready-to-go set of problems is!” Doris Barahona-Burton, Former North Carolina AD
