FIRST Tech Challenge

South Florida League

Florida: A League of Our Own

The Florida FIRST® Tech Challenge (FTC®) program has led the way with the League Play tournament system for FIRST , piloting the program during the 2012 and 2013 seasons. League play is now the established format here in Florida, under the direction of the Florida FIRST Tech Challenge Program Committee.

The Florida FIRST Tech Challenge program Committee and League Leaders join together to provide volunteer training, workshops, practice days, meets and league championships: that follow the rules, judging processes and scoring as specified by FIRST Tech Challenge Headquarters; that are fairly judged and refereed; and that are fun for teams and spectators.

Teams compete at several of their own League Meets and their League Championship. The team’s win-loss-tie record, judging scores, and a judged team-created video determines each team’s state ranking. The top twenty-four ranked teams that attended three or more competitions (Meets or League Championships) receive invitations to attend the Florida Championship.

Please read the Florida FTC Guide to League Play for complete League competition details.
