Regional Qualifiers

Iowa Regional Qualifiers – World Class 2014

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 12 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, non-refundable fee of $50. (Which covers both the regional and qualifiers’ state participation!) Teams will be billed for their participation fees by ISU with timely payment due upon receipt of the invoice.

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.

A note to parents and coaches on allergies –

At all Iowa FLL/Jr. FLL events, it is up to the parents/coaches to make sure that the youth team members stay safe and avoid the foods which they are allergic.  Parents/coaches need to have the appropriate medications with them in case of a severe allergic reaction   Events are held in public spaces and often there are various snacks and food on the premises.  Please let your organizer know prior to the event date about special needs or accommodations, and we will work to find a reasonable solution.
