    It is that time again to get ready for the Decathlon! Thankfully, we have been able to put a hold on the Walter Pyramid Center at Long Beach State for Sunday, March 5th. The managers of the Walter Pyramid Center were gracious in welcoming us and in working to meet our unique needs last year after we lost the LA Sports Arena as a venue. This venue will accommodate 105 decathlon teams.
    The Walter Pyramid Center cannot host us on a Saturday due to their sporting program. Fortunately, we are blessed to celebrate Mass together at this event each year. Perhaps the decathletes and their teacher coaches can be granted a “Decathlon Holiday” for Monday, March 6th.
    Registration for Decathlon 2017 begins October 10 and will be posted to wikispaces on that day. Study Guides are expected to be posted the first week in October: http://academicdecathlon.wikispaces.com/Study+Guide

    questions regarding
    Due to our large size and the number of schools participating, ​ Los Angeles Archdiocese will not be participating in the OPTIONAL writing portion of the decathlon.
    In response to the conversation at the Coaches Meeting in Orange County last Thursday, we would like to share the following information with you:
    1. The 2015-2016 Logic Tests are the practice tests included in the 2016-2017 Logic Study Guide. The Logic Study Guide is available for purchase at https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/2017-AJHD-Logic-Study-Guide-2819217.
    2. Yes, there are quizlet classes for each subject area this year. The quizlet classrooms are active and we've had some decathletes sign up already to use the quizlet site.
    3. Perceived disconnect between Study Guide materials and Decathlon tests. Tests and study guides are written directly from the resource books, and therefore, are the resources to use for studying for the test.
    4. There was a problem with the links to the news articles in the first Current Events list of articles. A number of the news sites we linked to archived the articles. We've made the first ETC study guide #1 for Current Events available for free to the decathletes to compensate for the difficulty in finding the articles. I've sent an email reply to those coaches who contacted us directly and posted the study guide and a message on the wikispaces page. From now on, we will post the articles as PDFs to the wikispaces page.
    Thank you for your continued efforts for the students in our schools.
    In Christ,

    The 2017 Academic Junior High Decathlon Executive Committee

    For the 2016-2017 Academic Junior High Decathlon, dioceses will have the opportunity of participating in the optional Writing Test. The Writing Test is an individual subject test, consisting of a timed, written essay. The essay competition is held a couple of weeks prior to the diocesan Decathlon competitions. It is an optional test and scores from the test will not count in relation to the total team score for the overall Decathlon competitions. Please check with your diocesan AJHD coordinator to determine if the optional Writing Test is being offered in your area, the date and time of the Writing Test, and information on registering for the test.
