Qualifier Registration update

FLL World Class Teams,

If you have already registered for a Qualifier, congratulations and thank you for completing the process quickly! Please consider purchasing a Qualifier t-shirt to commemorate the season. You can find your Qualifier t-shirt available for purchase on your team page.

Event Registration Closing

Event registration for Monarch Qualifier is now closed.

Event registration for the Preston Qualifier is now closed. Those teams that did not make it in should consider the Liberty Qualifier. Same day and only a few miles apart.

Event Status

Only two weeks until the events on Nov 8th! Please register now for these events.

Now that Preston is filled, Liberty will fill quickly. Northern Colorado teams I implore you to consider the Weld Qualifier (you may need to update your survey to include Weld on your team page). Yes, it's hard to imagine being "ready" by the 8th. Take heart, no one on the 8th is "ready". This will be a cozy event of no more than 16 teams. There are not enough spots at Poudre to handle the remaining NoCo teams. I'd much prefer that you choose Weld then find out that's the only choice a week and a half from now.

Colorado Springs teams - sign up now!! The Springs event is on Nov 8th and typically has about 40 teams. There are only 25 teams on the roster right now. I'd hate to see 15 teams miss an opportunity to participate at a Qualifier!

All other events have plenty of space available.
Note: We have enough Qualifier slots for all the teams only if all the events are filled.

Registration deadlines are coming fast! If your team has not completed registration by the deadline below, then we will do our best to assign your team to an event based on your preferences specified in the team survey and event availability. If, by the 25th, you have not completed your team survey and event preference we will assume your team is not participating in a Qualifier event - so please do the survey if you want to participate! Even if you are assigned, we'll still be asking for team volunteers.

Later events generally fill up first. Just because the deadline is later does not mean you have more time. Do not wait!
