General Info

This invitational league is open to public school districts in Southern California's region 4.  We hope the league will give teams an opportunity to compete and test out designs in a friendly, supportive environment.  We especially welcome new teams to participate.  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. 22, Nov. 19, Dec. 10, 2022

Finals:  Jan. 21, 2023 -- 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.
