Good Evening FIRST LEGO League Teams! 

We hope you are getting geared up and preparing for the 2016 Animal Allies Season!  

Please keep in mind that while you are able to view the tournament schedule you will NOT be able to register for a tournament until October 1st.  You will be able to find the tournament schedule here.  

A few things to consider when reviewing the tournament schedule:
  1. You must complete your registration with FIRST before registering with VA/DC FIRST LEGO League.
  2. Once you have registered with FIRST make sure you have completed the VA/DC FIRST LEGO League registration process and provide all up to date information.  If you have not completed this step you will need either create, or log into your team manager account and provide your teams updated information.  
  3. Once you have created your team management account with VA/DC FIRST LEGO League you will need to decide method of payment for the VA/DC FIRST LEGO League registration fee.  If you choose to pay with credit card, you can pay here.
Keep in mind will NOT be able to register or compete in a tournament until all the above steps are completed.  If you have any questions please email the [log in to unmask] or call (540) 568-2216.

b. Pay by check: Send a check for $125 to the address below. Be sure to include your team number on the check so that it can be correctly credited. Multiple payments may be included in the same check, but each team numbers must be indicated.

c. Pay by purchase order: Purchase orders are acceptable from any VA or DC school system. Send your purchase order to the address below.

3. Enter team member information (team member name, date of birth, etc.). Date of birth determines the team’s VA-DC FLL division – please be accurate and complete 

4. Regional Qualifying Tournament Preference Selection (pick 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice). This final step (selection of tournaments) will not be available until October 1st.  Assignments are based on a first-come, first-serve basis based on tournament selection so starting registration now will not guarantee your preference but does give you ample time to collect team member information ahead of time.

You will be able to come back and make updates/changes as needed until the end of the registration period on October 10th.  We will send out reminders when we get close to the opening of the regional tournament selection portion.

Best of luck teams!
