TOURNAMENT STRUCTURE IN LOUISIANA:

Qualifying tournaments in Louisiana will be held between Saturday, Nov. 8th and 15th, 2014.  Teams are invited to participate in ONE qualifying tournament.  The number and location of qualifiers are determined once national registration is closed, typically by the end of September or when field sets run out (whichever is first).  The LA Regional Championship will be held on Saturday, December 6th, at Holy Cross High School in New Orleans and is open to 60 teams who have advanced from a sanctioned LA FLL Qualifying Tournament.

REQUIRED TEAM DOCUMENTS (bring with you to the tournament)

  • Consent/Release Form for each coach and team member (completed by their parent/guardian) presented at EACH tournament (qualifier and championship).  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 TIMS Team Summary page.  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 Regional 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 (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 Report - (REQUIRED AT THE REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP AND AT THE QUALIFIERS), must give a copy to the Core Values judges at the start of your judging session and provides valuable information to assist in the Core Values judging process.  You must provide this to be eligible for the Core Values award.

  • Robot Design Executive Summary (STRONGLY RECOMMENDED, BUT NOT REQUIRED) not only conveys important information to the judges, but helps the team organize ahead of time what they believe is important information.

 

WHAT TO BRING TO AN EVENT

  • Signed Consent and Release forms (REQUIRED)
  • Team introduction page (REQUIRED)
  • Core Values Report (REQUIRED AT THE REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP AND AT THE QUALIFIERS)
  • Robot Design Executive Summary (recommended, but not required)
  • Robot and attachments
  • Parts kit (extra parts for repairs/adjustments)
  • Print out of mission programs and robot design executive summary
  • 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.

 

2014 TOURNAMENT AND ADVANCEMENT PROCESS:

Team selection for advancement to the LA Regional 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 Regional Championship.  If your team is invited to advance, you MUST register by Nov. 22nd 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.

2014 TOURNAMENT REGISTRATION, FEES AND PAYMENT - all tournaments have a $25 local registration fee

Registration for qualifying tournaments will open October 1st through 15th and will be handled through an online link above and provided to team coaches via email.  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 2014 TOURNAMENT ASSIGNMENTS below), please go to 2014 TOURNAMENT FEE PAYMENT INFORMATION at the bottom of this page for information regarding whom to pay and where to send a $25 check.  It is payable directly to the host organization, so instructions for each qualifier will be different.
