Who can become a coach?
Traditionally MFPSP has been run by teachers as part of their school day or as an extra-curricular activity.
BUT...that is not the only way to have a team! Parents, higher level students, etc. can all be trained as coaches. We highly encourage any interested person to be trained and start coaching!
Teams also do not need to be based in a traditional school. Homeschool families, religious clubs and others can all have teams.

Become an Evaluator
Evaluators come from all sources. Coaches, administrators, parents and even students can become evaluators. We offer free trainings, and mentoring to support our new evaluators as they learn the process. All potential evaluators must be familiar with the program, and students must be 10th grade or higher.
Interested in becoming a evaluator? Email our Administrative Director Katie Hafner to chat and schedule a free training.

Become a Volunteer
Volunteers are needed to help run our State Bowl Competition at Michigan State University each year. Volunteers aid in set up, answering questions, directing foot traffic, running the store, monitoring competition rooms, monitoring presentations and more. Parents, siblings, and interested parties are all welcome to volunteer. Email our Administrative Director Katie Hafner to be added to our contact list and to learn more.
