Teams

The competition is made for teams. Every team has up to 6 students.
The students will pick a name and a flag design that would represent their team in the competition.

Teamwork makes the dream work! Work with a team of six students.
Build unity and a sense of identity by developing a name and a flag
to represent your core values that will carry you to victory!

Teams will be divided into regions based on geographic location.
All teams in a region will face off each other in different games through multiple stages.

Challenges

Missions & Challenges

Make your way

To the final challenge

Each division will have three games broken down into missions.
The last mission is your challenge.

Start early and persevere, for the challenges will not be
revealed until two weeks after the league begins.
Junior and Pro divisions will have a chance to advance
to the FINAL CHALLENGE at week four.

Training Camp

Training Camp

All the pro’s train so they can dominate. Same rules go here! Head to your division’s Training Camp to learn about the platform through a series of activities that will prepare you for the league. No points are awarded but the hours you log here will POWER UP your coding for the challenges you will face.

Training Camps open on October 1st.
Be ready!

Preliminaries

Preliminaries

First Stage

In the first stage, known as the preliminaries, the teams will complete a series of missions and challenges. In every mission,
each student can win up to 100 points. Want more points? Make sure all your team members complete all the missions.

After 2 Weeks

After 2 weeks, the three Challenges are OPEN.
The challenges will test all the concepts that the students have learned so far. There is one challenge for each game.
Unlike the regular missions, only the highest scoring student will count toward victory for their team.

After 4 Weeks

After 4 weeks into the competition, the fourth and final challenge will be added to the Junior and Pro division - BasketBot for Junior and ToppleBot for Pro.
This challenge is structured like all the others, but is MUCH harder. At the end of the preliminaries, bonus points are awarded to teams depending on their
position on the previous challenge’s leaderboard. These points will be added to the points they earned for missions, and all points together will be called the
“overall score” for the preliminaries. Long story short, the more you practice, the better you score, the more chance your team has of GOING FOR THE GOLD!

Group Stage

Group Stage

For the group stage, the highest scoring Junior and Pro divisions teams from each region will move on.

During this stage, you will be divided into groups of 4 teams each.
You will be pitted AGAINST the CoderZ AI: The Ultimate Robot, in an amped up version of the final challenge.
The top two teams in each group advance to the playoffs.
