New Competition Format in MN for FLL

May 8, 2015 - New FLL Competition Format 

In the 2014-2015 FLL World Class season we were the largest partner in the United States with 621 Minnesota FIRST LEGO League teams. In order to continue to serve this many teams we are adopting a new competition format by adding a 'level' of competition between Reigonals and the Championship called SECTIONALS.
 
To accommodate three levels, the competition season will need to be altered. All teams will compete in either November or December. Here is our tentative tournament and fee schedule (dates are tentative)
 
Regional Schedule - $100 Sectional Schedule - $125
  • November 14 & 15
  • November 21 & 22
  • December 5 & 6
  • December 12 & 13
  • December 19 & 20
  • January 9 & 10
  • January 30 & 31

State Championship - $150

  • February 20, 2016
This 2nd level of competition will allow more teams the opportunity to compete a second time and improve their robot and/or project. We anticipate advancing approximately 25% of the teams from Regionals into Sectionals, and approximately 25% from Sectionals to the State Championship.
