The timeline/schedule to prepare for an official FLL Qualifying Tournament varies from team to team based on their team's goals.  The frequency and time period of a team meeting also depends on the availability of team coaches and student team members.  If you'd like specific advice about this topic relating to your team, please send me a separate email at [log in to unmask]

The Coaches' Handbook has great ideas and a timeline.

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] Suggested timelines?

I'm new to coaching this year and I'm trying to get a feel for how to plan our season. Are there guidelines or suggested timelines for how to prepare for the competition? I'd like to set some targets for where we need to be by when to make sure that we aren't cramming too much in the last week. Thanks for any advice.
