Transitioning from FLL to FTC

Congratulations to all of you on a fantastic 2013 FLL season! Nature’s Fury was an amazing challenge!! I had a great time volunteering as an FLL judge this year and cannot wait to see what teams come up with next season!

Are you interested in learning how to take your FLL team and turn it into an FTC team? This four-part video training—featuring experts from the FTC community—is for you! Hear from Ken Johnson, director of FTC, Team Terra Nova Robotics, Team Tesla, Fish in the Boat, and FIRST co-founder Woodie Flowers!

Once you have watched the videos, the next step is to register your new team! Registration opened on May 14th for the 2014 FTC challenge, so there is no need to wait. Just click here and follow the prompts.

Still have questions? We are here to help you make this transition as smooth as possible! With multiple seasons of coaching experience behind us, Carol and I are excited to welcome developing teams into the First Tech Challenge family. You will find that with Virginia FIRST, our involvement doesn’t end when you register. Our staff has a genuine interest in your team’s successful transition through the progression of programs and both Carol and myself are available by phone or email throughout the season to assist you. Please contact Kristin Clemons at kclemons@virginiafirst.org or Carol Edelman at cedelman@virginiafirst.org and we will be happy to help you get started.

Thanks,
Kristin Clemons
FTC-Coordinator

I highly recommend the book “FTC Robotics: Tips, Tricks, Strategies, and Secrets: 2013-14 Edition” . Each year I read it, I get something new from it. We end of focusing on a part of the machine/book that we’re working on making stronger in our next season. It really gave me the confidence to start my FLL team on their journey into FTC. What a great gift that team has given FTC by compiling their knowledge for us. Glad they are also making videos on the topic.
