Arizona Qualifying Tournaments
We anticipate running 8 qualifying tournaments in Arizona this year from November through early February, with the Arizona Championship in late February. We currently have 4 of the 8 events confirmed with schools and will post the schedule and open registration before Kickoff. Similar to last year, we will use a flat fee structure for competing in 2 or 3 events. We highly encourage every team to compete at least twice to maximize your season and your team's growth, learning, and fun!
The FIRST Tech Challenge Rookie Grants are now available, as well as grants for veteran teams through Boeing and Raytheon if your team has mentors from these companies. Check the grants page here and be sure to check back as the season get started for more funding opportunities.
