FIRST Tech Challenge: Remote Tournaments

The FTC-Iowa would like to invite your team to compete in one final ULTIMATE GOAL Remote tournament. This invitational will be open to any and all ULTIMATE GOAL teams.

Questions & Answers

  • What is the "game" for the Iowa Invitational?
    This event will be ULTIMATE GOAL. Teams are encouraged to read Game Manual Part 1: Remote AND Game Manual Part 2: Remote.
  • How long will we have to enter matches?
    Like the remote meets, teams will have a span of 7 days to enter scores. We will have a Driver/Coach meeting at the beginning of the week.
  • How will judging work?
    Similar to traditional events, teams will be assigned an interview time on Saturday. Teams will also need to participate in Virtual Pit Events in which judges can do a second round of interviews. Teams will need to submit their documentation (Engineering Portfolio, Judging Feedback Form, Control Award Application) the Wednesday prior to their scheduled Judge Interview date.
  • When will Driver/Coaches meeting take place?
    The Driver/Coaches meeting will take place the Thursday prior to the event week (see chart below). Due to the number of zoom capacity and the number of teams competing, there will be a capacity limit on the number of attendees for these Driver/Coaches meetings. No more than three attendees per team for the Driver/Coaches meetings.
  • What is the capacity of this event?
    We are limiting the capacity of this event to 18 teams.
  • When will we know the time of our judges interview?
    Similar to a traditional event, times for the teams interviews with the judges will be sent the week prior to the event. Treat this event similar to a Traditional event: set aside a good portion of competition Saturday and judge interview times cannot be changed once they are distributed.
  • How do we register? Is there a registration fee?
    There is a $50/team registration fee (credit card payments only). Registration is now closed.

Teams are encouraged to read "How to Prepare for a REMOTE League Tournament" a week or so prior to the event.
