North Texas FTC Regional Championship (TENTATIVE)
The Regional FTC Championship for North Texas will likely be held on February 10, 2017 (location TBD). Up to forty-eight teams will be competing for awards and a chance to attend the FTC South Super Regional Championship on March 6-8 in Athens, Georgia.
Event format: This year’s regional championship will be a dual-division event. All teams will compete for the same set of event-wide judged awards. The robot game will be organized into two divisions of up to 24 teams each. Each division will separately play five rounds of qualification matches, then go through alliance selection and elimination rounds to produce a Winning Alliance for each division. The two division Winning Alliances will then play against each other to determine the Championship Winning Alliance and Championship Finalist Alliance.
Team registration: Invited teams will be able to register for the championship starting in January. Teams may earn an invitation to the regional championship by advancing from a North Texas FTC Qualifying Tournament or North Texas FTC League Tournament.
Notes for teams
This is a Championship Event, which means that teams are expected to be prepared and perform at a higher level than at a League or Qualifying event. Teams should arrive at the event with their robots completely ready for inspection, having already completed the Robot Self-Inspection Checklist . Matches may also run at a somewhat quicker pace than at earlier tournaments.
