LVCORE Robotics Teams

FIRST LEGO League Teams (FLL)

(4th through 8th Grade Students)


2022 PA East Regional Champions at the World Championships in Houston, TX

We are excited for the upcoming FIRST LEGO League (FLL) season and hope you will join us as we combine teamwork, creativity, robotics, design, problem solving and fun to conquer the challenges of this year’s FLL season

FLL COMPETITION TEAMS

WHO: Competition Teams are open to students in grades 4 – 8 with previous LEGO Mindstorm experience.

WHEN:  Each week students will attend team practice on Monday and Wednesday afternoons/evenings. Students much choose to attend from 4:30 – 6:00 or 6:00 – 7:30 on both day.  Practices will begin the week of August 30 and the preparation portion of the season will last until the second scrimmage in late November/early December when all teams will attend a regional qualifier competition. Based on how team perform at the regional qualifier, teams may advance and the season will continue to the Regional Championship in late January.

WHERE:  Practices will be held at St. Thomas More School. 1040 Flexer Avenue, Allentown, PA 18103.

TEAMS:  FIRST LEGO League states that teams may consist of up to 10 members but we feel the best number for maximum involvement, benefit, and fun in between 5 – 7 students.  We will form these teams based on age, ability, and team practice times (early 4:30 – 6:00 or later 6:00 – 7:30).

COMPETITIONS:  We will have two scrimmages this fall. All teams will attend a Regional Qualifier in December. Based on a team’s performance, they may advance to the Regional Competition in January.

COST:  $750 for the season. Payment by installment is an option with $300 due at registration and then three payments of $150 due on Sept 15, Oct 15, and Nov 15.
