General Info

This league is primarily for teams from schools in LAUSD Local District Central. Other teams may participate if space is available. The location of this league was changed from Obama Global Preparation Academy on 9/27/2019. This league will be meeting in the Multipurpose Room at Estrella Elementary School. Underground parking is available from the 57th Street entrance.

When you register for this league, please choose Pay Later as your Payment Method and bring a league fee check for $150 per team to the first league session. Please make your check payable to Estrella Elementary School.

Each session begins with Team Check-in and Robot Inspection. Teams need to check in by 4:30 PM and robots need to pass inspection by 4:45 PM to be included in the Teamwork Challenge match schedule.

At Team Check for the first session, teams turn in release forms and league fee checks and sign up to provide one volunteer for at least one league session.

At the three Qualifying Sessions, each team will be scheduled in four Teamwork Challenge Qualifying Matches.

STEM Research Project videos are due by Friday, December 20, 2019, the last school day before the winter break. Submit a link to your YouTube or SchoolTube video at: https://forms.gle/47S8pdGuwXvCAASp7

At Team Check-in for the final Championship session in January, teams turn in Engineering Notebooks. Robot Skills Challenge Matches are not scheduled. Teams may participate in up to three Driving Skills Matches and up to three Programming Skills matches while Judges are reviewing Engineering Notebooks and interviewing teams. The Championship session concludes with Teamwork Challenge Finals Matches and Awards.

Teams need to provide at least one volunteer for at least one session. If we do not have enough volunteers, we may not be able to complete all scheduled matches. See the Volunteer tab for details.

We will have two or three competition fields and two or three practice fields at each session, depending on the number of teams that register.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
