FTC Qualifiers

10DecRobotics4017-cMaryland has six FTC Qualifying Tournaments for the 2013-14 "FTC Block Party" season.  These Qualifiers will each be for 24-28 teams with a proportional opportunity to advance to the Maryland FIRST Tech Challenge Championship.  We encourage Maryland and DC FTC teams to register for multiple events (up to three) and we try to have space for out-of-state teams as well.

The Maryland FTC Championship is on February 22, 2014 at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.  Thirty-two teams will qualify for the event from which seven teams will advance to the East Super-Regional in York, PA, on April 3-5 and from there have the opportunity to advance to the FIRST Championships in St. Louis April 23-26.

We had two rounds of registration for the Maryland/DC "FTC Block Party" Qualifiers.  Round One, from October 1-7 for our first three events in DC and Annapolis, was for Maryland and DC teams only to select their initial event.  Round Two of our registration was from November 18-25 for all events and was open to all FTC teams.  Preference is given to Maryland and DC teams, particularly those that do not yet have an event assignment.  Assignments for all Maryland/DC FTC Qualifiers are posted here (UPDATED 2/10/2014)

The registration fee for each Qualifier event is $150, due after events are assigned.  We send payment instructions directly to team leaders.  There is no additional registration fee for teams that qualify for the Maryland FTC Championship.

All Maryland FTC events are free and open to the public, and we encourage visitors to come share the excitement.  The best time for viewing is generally in the afternoon between 1:00 - 4:00pm as the teams finish their Qualification Rounds, make their alliance selections and engage in Elimination Rounds.  Better yet, please volunteer for an event!  We can use all skill levels and it's a great way to see the teams in action.
