TOURNAMENT STRUCTURE IN LOUISIANA:

Qualifying tournaments in Louisiana will be held on 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.

 

2014 QUALIFYING TOURNAMEMNT LOCATION AND DATES WILL BE POSTED ONCE DETAILS ARE FINALIZED.

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

Registration for qualifying tournaments will open in early October 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 will also receive information regarding where to send a $25 check.  It is payable directly to the host organization, so instructions for each qualifier will be different.

 

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.
