Our team is approaching a period where new leaders will be appointed, and after reflecting on this season, I and a programming co-leader (@irr313v4nt) found this year’s new programmers to be lacking. Both of us are about to enter our final HS year, so our involvement next season would be scarce.
While this is purely based on mine and his judgement, we feel that the new members are not really invested and those who remain (only half of those recruited pre-season remain) only participate out of responsibility. This year’s code was also mostly written by me and the co-leader due to time constraints, so their experience is hindered as well.
We want them to have the same commitment as us so they can pass on the experience and research to improve the team, so what can we do in the offseason to bring them up to speed and motivates them to lead the next season?
