2016 Louisiana Tournaments . . .


Qualifying tournaments in Louisiana will be held on Saturday, Nov. 12th and 19th, 2016.  Teams may apply to participate in ONE qualifying tournament.  The number and location of qualifiers are determined once national registration is closed by the end of September or when field sets run out (whichever is first).  The LA State Championship will be held on Saturday, December 10th, at Holy Cross High School in New Orleans and is open to 60 teams who have advanced from a sanctioned LA FLL Qualifying Tournament.

Registration for Louisiana FIRST LEGO League Qualifying Tournaments opens Thursday Oct. 1st at 6am and closes October 15th, 11pm. 



The FIRST tournament registration system is experiencing issues, so we are using an alternative method for registering teams – see above link. When you register for a tournament, you are “applying” to that tournament.  You will be “accepted/assigned” to that tournament on a first-come-first-served basis if your national registration is paid.  “Paid” is defined as FIRST having received a credit card payment, check, or a P.O. (receipt of money from a P.O. is not required for PAID status, but the P.O. must have been approved by FIRST – takes a few days).  And first-come-first-served is only if you are applying for a tournament in your geographic region (see below).  If you are applying for a tournament outside of your geographic region, assignment is dependent upon available space. The Louisiana tournament registration deadline is October 15th, but don’t delay, as some tournaments fill up fast.  The current paid teams are shown at http://lafll.org/CurrentTeams.htm .  Tournament “assignments” (acceptance into a tournament) will be shown at http://lafll.org/Tournaments.htm.


PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR $30 CHECK TO A TOURNAMENT HOST UNTIL YOU ARE OFFICIALLY ACCEPTED INTO THAT TOURNAMENT. We are in the process of completing the table below identifying to whom and where checks are to be sent.


REQUIRED TEAM DOCUMENTS (bring with you to the tournament)

  • Consent/Release Forms  If your team members have registered online on the Student Team Member Information System (STIMS) and had their parents complete the form online (FIRST is strongly encouraging the online route and has sent emails to all registered teams explaining), then coaches simply need to print out your Team Roster from your Team Dashboard.  It will show which students are on your team and which have completed the form.  If team members have NOT registered and completed the form online, they must provide a signed paper Consent/Release form at each event.  If your team advances to the LA State Championship, the LA FLL Planning Committee will likely require team members to register online and will require the official Team Roster, as this is what FIRST is asking us to do. 
  • Team Information Sheet - fillable pdf or docx (also known as Team Introduction or Team Profile sheet).  Bring 4 copies - one for registration and one for each of the judging sessions (robot design, project, and core values).
  • Core Values POSTER - (REQUIRED AT THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AT THE QUALIFIERS) - You must provide this to be eligible for the Core Values award at the Championship. And although not required at the Qualifiers, it can impact the judges' decisions, as it provides valuable information to assist in the Core Values judging process. 

  • Robot Design Executive Summary (SUGGESTED to help teams prepare, BUT NOT REQUIRED TO TURN IN TO JUDGES) not only conveys important information to the judges, but helps the team organize ahead of time what they believe is important information.


  • Team Roster showing status of Consent and Release signatures, and paper copies for any team member that has not completed it online (REQUIRED)
  • Team introduction page (REQUIRED)
  • Anything needed for your Project Presentation (props/costumes/etc.)
  • Robot Design Executive Summary (suggested, but not required)
  • Robot and attachments
  • Parts kit (extra parts for repairs/adjustments)
  • Print out of mission programs (helpful to give to the judges)
  • Materials, props, and equipment needed for Project presentation
  • Laptop computer with batteries and/or AC adaptor, extra batteries, extension cords
  • Team scrapbook
  • Team banner, posters, or other decorations for pit space
  • Snacks and drinks
  • Storage box for personal items
  • USB cable
  • Fun, inexpensive items to share with other teams (pins, hats, personalized team playing cards). This practice is a fun way for teams to get to know each other.  Handmade items that reflect your team or organization (school, troop, etc.) are also great.



Team selection for advancement to the LA State Championship is determined by the “FIRST Champions Award Criteria”, which is an overall ranking based on team performance in all 3 judging sessions (Core Values, Project, Robot Design) plus performance on the field – see FIRST Judging FAQ.  The intent is to have 12-team qualifiers, but sometimes the numbers vary, so advancement is based on a percentage that will be determined from the number of teams we have in Louisiana after national registration is closed.  60 teams will be invited to the LA State Championship.  If your team is invited to advance, you MUST register by Nov. 21st at the online link which will be posted on this website.  After that date, open slots will be offered to teams on the waiting list.


Number of teams who will be invited to advance from each 2016 FLL Qualifying Tournament:

will be determined after qualifying tournament registration closes on Oct. 15th

2016 TOURNAMENT REGISTRATION, FEES AND PAYMENT - all tournaments have a $30 local registration fee

Registration for qualifying tournaments will open October 1st through 15th. Teams will be asked to identify their first and second choice for a qualifying tournament, and preference will be given to geographical proximity.  Every attempt will be made to give a team their first choice, but the main priority is to assure that all teams who wish to compete have a spot in a tournament.  When you receive confirmation of which qualifier you are accepted into (you can check the TOURNAMENT ASSIGNMENTS below), please go to TOURNAMENT FEE PAYMENT INFORMATION at the bottom of this page for information regarding whom to pay and where to send a $30 check.  It is payable directly to the host organization, so instructions for each qualifier will be different.
