Greetings Coaches,

I have 3 items for you today. First Qualifier events are this weekend!! Everyone ready?


  1. What to Expect the Tournament Day
  2. Event Equipment Needed!
  3. Volunteer’s Needed!

A Note-

I will be posting the awards for the events the week after on our website, so far the first weeks events, I will have them posted by Wednesday 12/5. Second weekend will be posted by 12/12. For those teams that advance, Semi-Final assignments will be posted by 12/20.

What to expect the Tournament Day

This is now posted on our website under Team Resources – FIRST LEGO League – FIRST LEGO League Downloads. Under General Team Information. This button will open it for you as well:

Tournament Day Information for Teams

So far, my most frequently asked question is about the Core Values Poster, this is optional at the Qualifier level, and required at Semi-Finals and above.

Register to Provide Event Equipment

Thank you to the teams that have filled this out already! Unfortunately, very few teams have offered to bring equipment. If teams do not volunteer to bring tables and challenge sets, we will not have practice tables, judging tables or challenge sets for these areas.

All events need support from the attending teams in order to have enough tables and challenge sets for the judging rooms and practice tables. If people do not sign up to provide these items, we will not have tables or challenge sets for practice or judge rooms at many events. To provide challenge sets and tables for event use, please register your equipment here.

Volunteer Recruitment: If you have not identified a volunteer yet, please do it now!

We are short of volunteers at most events. Please get your team’s volunteer signed up in the registration system ASAP!

Recruited volunteers should go to the FIRST website here and create a new account. Volunteers will complete the process for background screening and should select the event where they want to volunteer. Each team is expected to recruit or provide at least one adult volunteer to work a full day at a FIRST LEGO League Qualifier event this season.
