How It Works

In Michigan, we have adopted a qualifying event system. All officially registered FTC teams will have the opportunity to participate in a qualifying event (see "FTC Events" for a list of events). Qualified teams will advance to a state championship event.

Practice events are a way for teams to get event experience before qualifying events begin and provides the opportunity for "on the job" training for volunteers.

Teams are also encouraged to participate in a variety of off season activities. These activities serve the dual purpose of promoting the program in a fun and exciting way plus providing opportunities for teams to interact with the community and each other.

Event hosts and volunteers are important to the success of the program. Visit "Get Involved" to learn how to become a part of this exciting program!
