Allgemeine information

This invitational league is open to middle schools within the El Rancho, Downey, Baldwin Park and Brea school districts.  We hope the league will give teams an opportunity to compete and test out designs in a friendly, supportive environment.  The timing of the meets (3-4 weeks apart) should allow competitors to revise and refine designs between competitions.   Each team must take part in at least two of the three ranking meets to participate in the finals, where teams have a chance to qualify for CA State Championships.

As an invitational league, please place your team on the waiting list, and we will notify you as soon as your participation is confirmed.

Ranking Meets:  Oct. 21, Nov. 18, Dec. 9, 2023

Finals:  Jan. 27, 2024 -- Bracketed tournament with state qualifier and multiple judged awards.

Please note:  All students and adults involved in the league (coaches, volunteers, etc.) must abide by the El Rancho Unified School District's health policies.   Participants will be notified 2-3 weeks in advance of each meet if there will be audience restrictions, mask requirements, or other related health measures.

If Event Partner cancels the event:

In the event that the league is cancelled by the Event Partner due to health or other conditions, teams will receive a partial refund ($200 less the share of any expenses already incurred by the event partners for game elements, $5 RECF fee, etc.).

If a team cancels:

If a coach registers and then chooses to withdraw their team(s), a partial refund can be provided prior to the end of registration (10/16/23).  The refund will be $200 less the share of any expenses already incurred by the event partners, such as the $5 RECF fee.  After 10/16/23, refunds cannot be provided, and we ask that teams maintain their participation in the league so we can provide the best possible competition environment for all registered teams.
