Whats New for 2018

Welcome to the 2018 Western PA FLL Tournament Series and Championship
— and to another exciting FLL Season in Western PA!
 

 

The Western PA FLL Leadership Team is excited to be supporting many different FLL events in our region including a Grand Championship that every registered team in the region will be able to qualify for.

 

Notes about this year (for those who’ve competed here in the past…)

 

  • The Into Orbit Challenge will be released on August 1st this year and our region will be having a kickoff celebration that same day
  • The most significant change for the 2018 season is the move of our championship tournaments to the Weekend of December 7-9.  The Championship will be held at Sewickley Academy, in Sewickley, PA.
  • We will be having a Mascot Competition this year.  Team mascots are welcome at all events (for fun), but we will be having a mascot competition and celebration (sponsored byt the amazing Rogue Robots Team) at our championship tournament this year.
  • As with the last two years, we will be running two separate divisions throughout the season and at the championship – The OPEN Division and the SCHOLASTIC Division.  Both divisions will be represented in all scheduled events.  Teams select their division by purchasing the associated Season Pass on this website. Teams may switch divisions with tournament director approval up til November 1st.
  • We have some new venues this year… and more details will be forthcoming shortly

Teams that want to participate in the Western PA Tournament Series and Championship will need to register their team on this website.  Buy the season pass for the division you want to participate in and then get ready for the event sign-up process that will start the second week in September.  Information on the process will be sent out to teams that have registered.
