Here’s is how the league works:

Qualifiers (Ranking Sessions) – Teams must compete in at least 60% of the following qualifying events.  All teams are encouraged to participate in all three dates if possible

League Championship - This is the season finale and will run as a bracketed tournament! Teams will be ranked according to their season records. Alliance selection will be based on rankings. A league champion will be crowned as well as State qualifiers. Multiple judged awards will be presented as well.

Skills will be offered and on an independent field when space is available.  Teams will be guaranteed at least 3 attempts of each during the duration of the league.
