Greetings, Welcome back to a new school year!
Are you ready for the 2013 Sea Lion Bowl at San Francisco State, sponsored and organized by the SF State Center for Science & Math Education (CSME)?
Get Ready with our 1st Coaches Meeting:
In preparation for the 2013 Sea Lion Bowl we will be having 2 Coaches Meetings Conference Calls on Thursday, October 4 (5-6pm) and Saturday October 6 (11am – noon). We will use this meeting to introduce our new Sea Lion Bowl Coordinator (Tatiane Russo-Tait) and discuss the 2013 policies including a possible JV Sea Lion Bowl division for teams and additional Sea Lion Bowl practices and social events. We hope that you join us for one of these calls.

Google Groups Information
The Sea Lion Bowl Coaches Group will be a place to share resources with Sea Lion Bowl Coaches including upcoming events and other resources that is of interest for anyone teaching marine sciences. I’ve started the topics but once you are a member you’ll start receiving information and will be able to share anything you find with the group.
If you join you can choose to receive email when it is sent, a daily digest, or not at all (with only access to the information through the google group). Either way all the resources shared will be archived and the coaches can share information with each other.
Resources that we’ll share will include NOSB Webinars which will start in November, see http://www.nosb.org/professional-development/ for more information.
