FIRST Tech Challenge West – Super-Regional Championship

March 20, 2014 - March 22, 2014

website

Beginning in the 2013-2014 season, FTC teams in the United States will advance from state or regional-level Championship Tournaments to one of four Super-Regional Championship Tournaments before advancing to the FTC World Championship.

Thanks to the efforts of FIRST volunteers, FTC has seen strong program growth and a new level of competition is needed to give the growing number of teams more opportunities to participate.  The introduction of a new advancement tier allows FTC to maintain a sustainable event structure, continue offering merit-based advancement and increase the level of competition.

The four Super-Regional Championship Tournaments will be hosted in Northern California, Texas, Iowa and Pennsylvania.  These locations were selected based on timing, accessibility, safety, local support, and resources to execute a strong event.

Super-Regional Championships are FIRST-endorsed events and are expected to expand outside of the U.S. in the future.  Please refer to the FAQ section below for more information.

What is a Super-Regional Championship Tournament?

A Super-Regional Championship Tournament is a new tier for FTC events. It is an event to which Regional Championships advance teams, and then teams advance from the Super-Regionals to the World Championship. There are four FTC regions in the United States with additional regions to be determined internationally as the program grows. Each US region will host one Super-Regional.
