Season Event Calendar

Pennsylvania FIRST Tech Challenge Events

Pennsylvania FIRST Tech Challenge calendar of events for the 2021-2022 season are listed in the table below. Unless identified otherwise on the event webpage, these events are managed by Pennsylvania FIRST Robotics. Events marked Team Powered are hosted and managed by a Pennsylvania FTC team.

Due limitations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, this season Pennsylvania FTC events listed below are limited to Pennsylvania FTC teams and specially invited out-of-state teams (e.g. Puerto Rico and West Virginia). These invited out-of-state teams will be considered like in-state teams during event registration request processing.

Advance registration using our Event Registration System is required to participate in the Workshops, Traditional (in-person) Scrimmages, League events, Qualifiers, and Championship.

  • Registration for Kickoffs and Coaches Calls is not required.
  • Registration for Workshops is required and closes 1 week before the event date.
  • Registration for Traditional (in-person) Scrimmages is required and closes 1 week before the event date. Open Traditional Scrimmage slots are offered to Waitlist teams starting 3 weeks before the event date.
  • Registration for Remote Scrimmages is not required. All Pennsylvania FTC Teams fully registered with FIRST (FIRST season registration fee paid and two YPP-screened coaches) at least 1 week before the event date will be automatically registered for the Remote Scrimmage.
  • Registration for Remote League play (League Meets and League Tournament) is required and closes 2 weeks before the next to the last Remote League Meet date. Teams must compete in at least two Remote League Meets to be eligible to compete in the Remote League Tournament.
  • Registration for Qualifiers is required and closes 2 weeks before the event date. Open Qualifier slots are offered to Waitlist teams starting 6 weeks before the event date.
  • The registration deadline for Championship is 1 week after your team’s qualifying date.

Minors attending or participating in any of these events must by accompanied by a parent, guardian, or team coach.
