Math Pentathlon is a volunteer-run after-school program where kids play board games with friends! We use engaging games to strengthen math skills, develop good sportsmanship, and foster creative thinking. There is an opportunity to play pentathletes from other area schools at Math Pentathlon Tournaments in the spring. For more information, check out the Math Pentathlon website or email [email protected] We support our volunteers- you do not need to be a math wiz to help! Membership is open to all grades (K-5).
Summitt Math Pentathlon registration is closed for the 2023-24 season.
Interested in joining Math Pentathlon next year? Email [email protected] for more info and to get involved.
Math Pentathlon meetings will be once a week in the evening. MP season runs from mid-October through February with the opportunity to represent Summitt at tournaments in April and May.
Call for coaches
Let us know if you’d be interested in coaching and for which division! Each group will be 12-16 students and at least 4 coaches. We coach in pairs with materials provided and experienced coaches to help – we support our coaches! No experience required.
Why be a coach?
We’ve had a lot of positive feedback about being a coach! It’s rewarding to watch our kids grow and interact in game playing with their peers, spend time at our school, and get to know other Summitt parents.
Bonus! Kids of coaches have their admission ensured.
The cost is $30 for the year per student and scholarships are available. Dues are waived for children of coaches.
Math Pentathlon runs on volunteer power! In addition to coaches, we need additional volunteers.
As a volunteer you may be asked to:
- Supervise the kids during break time
- Sit with students to help keep them focused during explanations and game play
- Clarify rules during game play
- Sit and play a game with a student
- Wrangle students at the end of meeting
- Distribute snacks
All volunteers must complete a background check through Austin Partners in Education https://austinpartners.org/volunteer/
We look forward to welcoming new and returning friends to Summitt Math Pentathlon. Let’s play some games! Questions/Suggestions? Email [email protected]
