And EVERYONE is in exactly the same boat.  

I coached for 4-5 years and NEVER felt ready – but nobody really gets an early start.  Nobody get’s to work on this challenge before the end of August so nobody is significantly ahead.  If you decide not to compete you change your whole approach.  The push to compete drives innovation, creativity, and ultimately – a sense of accomplishment.

Consider the new high school in your area.  They never fielded a football team before.  The team starts practicing – everyone is a rookie – and I can guarantee you they don’t feel ready for the first game.  But can you even IMAGINE them considering NOT competing?  You’ll see -  you’re as ready as everyone else.

Best of luck – we all hope to see you at a tournament this season.

Kathy,
The Virginia state tournament is always the first weekend in December because that is when the sponsoring university, JMU, is available.
Therefore, all the regional tournaments must be completed before the first weekend in December.
I know it is difficult for rookie teams, this is my 4th season coaching, and it is tough for my team, too!
But everyone has the same time constraint, so there is an equity to it.
Your team can always use the remainder of December to polish their project in preparation for entering the USPTO contest.
And, you can eat your turkey without stressing over FLL!

We are s rookie team (and coach/parents), is November our only first round option?   We don't feel we will be ready for a November competition.   Just wondering if December will be another option for our first official tournament.  
Thanks!
