Wearing my (ex-)coach's hat, I'd also support calling it a "team sharing
event" instead of a scrimmage. The FLL experience is not so much competition
against other teams but against your own robot. Focusing on "beating" the
other teams feels like it's kind of missing the point, and calling it a
"scrimmage" sounds like there's winning involved. Trust me, the kids will
think about winning enough already.

In order to be true to the core value of "sharing our experiences with
others", you may want to have a team sharing event instead of a scrimmage.
This could be an opportunity for teams to meet and share what they have
learned and discovered so far about their research and their robot. The
teams could have informal research sharing and practice robot rounds. 

It would be great practice AND meet the requirements of the team sharing
what they learned with others.

Good morning all!

 

My name is Leah Stone and I am a new coach of both a FLL and a Jr FLL team. 

 

We have three FLL teams out of our school in Fairfax and we are interested
in conducting and possibly even hosting some scrimmage matches. We are all
new at this but are very excited to get going!!! If possible, we would would
even like to get our PTA involved to help make snacks available and what
not. 

 

Since we have some much excitement for these matches (practice makes
perfect, right?!) I recommend we create an online forum (or use one already
in existence) for further coordination.  I will investigate this and send a
group notice for where we can collaborate, unless someone already has a site
set up...

 

Happy Friday everyone!!!

 

V/R

I'm a rookie coach, also. I don't know whether scrimmages have been done
before, but that doesn't mean we can't start. We are in Falls Church City.
Is anyone interested, if so, when and where are you? I'm willing to
coordinate something, if we can come up with a date soon.

As a first time coach, I wonder if anyone plans to set up scrimmages with
other teams.  Is that done in this region?
