Each Team’s Best 10 Matches – matches that count for League Championship

League Championship

January 23rd, 2016, Marion High School

All of our league teams will compete in a League Championship event at Marion High School on January 23, 2016. We will be combined with another league for an event with approximately 23 teams. This event will feature full judging, awards, and playoff rounds, and several teams will advance from this tournament to the state FTC championship tournament.

The standings for this event will be preloaded with each team’s best ten matches from league meets (including qualifying points, QP, and ranking points, RP). Each team will play five more matches at the league championship. Therefore, the final standings heading into alliance selections will consist of a total of fifteen matches. Teams that can win 10 matches (or close) will have a big advantage heading into the league championship. Even if a team does not rank high enough to be an alliance captain, they can still get picked by an alliance captain and win or be selected for an award to advance to the next level.
