2017 NorCalFLL Team Registration update!
As many of you have asked in email (and thank you for paying attention), yes, NorCal FLL should be open now for “Early Bird Registration” for our Qualifier tournaments. And as many (more) of you have noted, the FIRST Team Roster process (aka STIMS) is not open yet for this season. Important – We do not yet have a definite date for the Team Roster process to be online. So, we are going to have to move forward this season without that.
This means a couple of things:
- The tournament registration “pre-req” process will have to change – I am working on updating the jotform to not require the team roster. (You will still need to identify the team members, mentors and coaches – but matching that with the team roster will have to come later)
- We are going to delay the Early Bird Tournament registration for a couple more weeks – my target is September 15th but will publish a definite day/time as we get closer.
- This means that once the FIRST Team Roster process is available, each team will have only a short time to complete this process before your qualifier tournament. Once we know more about what has changed and when exactly the system will be live, we will let you know. IMPORTANT: Your team will not be able to compete at a tournament if you don’t have a copy of the completed team roster (plus any additional paper waiver forms) with you.
TL;DR: FIRST Team Roster won’t be required in order to register for NorCal qualifier tournament this season.
