Iowa Regional Qualifiers – World Class 2014
*Please note: the following dates and locations are tentative until registration officially opens. Coaches will be notified when registration opens. Therefore, it is important to make sure emails registered with FIRST are current and accurate.
Iowa uses a regional qualifier system for FLL teams. With this system, every team will have the opportunity to attend an FLL regional qualifier. Sign up will be on a “first-come, first served” basis with a certain number of teams/capacity per regional tournament event site.
Every tournament will have team capacity from 20 to 40 teams. All teams have the same opportunity of advancing on to the state championship held on the Iowa State University College of Engineering campus from all regionals.
Registration to participate in the Iowa FLL Tournament structure will be a one-time fee of $50-70. (That’s for the regional and qualifiers’ state participation!) Teams will be billed for their participation fees by ISU during November with payment due by end of December.
All student participants, coaches, and mentors participating in the Iowa FLL tournament structure will need a signed FIRST Consent and Release Form before attending a regional event. For team members, the form can be signed by their parent/guardian electronically through STIMS (here). Or, click here to print the form. Once you sign up for a regional in October, your regional tournament organizer will reach out to you with further details.
