Florida FTC teams are assigned to groups of teams, called Leagues. Teams will compete at several of their own League Meets and their League Championship. The team’s win-loss-tie record, judging scores, and a judged team-created video determines each team’s state ranking.
The twenty-four top ranked teams that submitted a team-created video for judging,
and attended one or more Meets and a League Championship earn invitations to the Florida Championship.
The Florida FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) program piloted a League Play tournament system for FIRST during the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 seasons with leagues being comprised of 8 to 16 teams each.
FIRST Tech Challenge has seen significant growth in Florida resulting in more leagues and an increased league size. This, 2015-2016, is the forth year of the League Play format. For the 2015-2016 season, the goal is to have 7-8 leagues with 18-28 teams each.
