Each FLL team can only attend one qualifier for a chance to advance to the 12/8/12 State Championship. However, each team can select up to 3 preferred locations on a first-come, first-serve basis.
To register for a qualifying event, go to https://gofll.usfirst.org/ to login to your team page. First thing to do is to make sure that your team profile is completed in every single field and the team registration is noted as PAID. Otherwise, your registration for the qualifier will be delayed.
This is a multi-parts process. See this video and below for step-by-step instructions.
Part 1. Apply to Event Group
Click on “Events” on the blue bar near the top of the screen.
Select “New Jersey” as the search region.
Click on “New Jersey FLL Event Group” as the event group you would like to apply for.
You will see various events listed in addition to the NJ State FLL Championship (which you can’t apply for until your team has won the qualifying event).
- Montclair/Clifton (24 teams), 11/17/12
- Steinert/Hamilton (24 teams), 11/17/12
- Hillsborough (24 teams), 11/17/12
- Bergen/Montvale (24 teams), 11/17/12
- Bridgewater (12 teams), 12/1/12
- Sparta/Lafayette (12 teams), 12/1/12
- Liberty Science Center (12 teams), 12/1/12
Do NOT click on the individual qualifying event “Info” to apply.
Instead, click on the green “Apply Now” button on the top.
If you have multiple teams, select the team name from the dropdown menu that you want to apply for that event, and click “Apply This Team“.
Select your top 3 choices for qualifiers in the 3 dropdown menus at the bottom of the screen. Each choice should be different in the order of your first, second and third choice.
Click “Proceed” and you will see:
A. A message indicates that your application has been submitted; or
B. A message telling you that there is information missing from your team profile. You must go to the team profile and complete the necessary information for the coaches’ personal profile and return to the application process.
Now if you click on the “Event” blue tab on the top, you will see the “Pending” or “Approved”, and list your Event Group and team #.
Logout when done.
Part 2. Register for the Event
Once you have completed the application process, you will receive a confirming email from FLL Team Registration that your team has been assigned to a particular event, and another email to notify you that the event coordinator will be reviewing your application and will be in contact.
You then receive emails from the tournament organizer updating you on your status when the organizer reviews your application and assigns your team to an event.
Log back into the team page to confirm your event selection to be added to the event roster. These steps include:
Register for the Event – Click on the embedded link in the email to complete your application for that event.
On the “Register for [Event Name]” screen, select your team and click “Next Step.”
If there are Event Specific Questions, please answer the questions.
Click “Apply” button to apply for the event.
If you have successfully applied to the event, you will receive a message on the screen: “Team successfully registered. You will be notified when the event coordinator accepts your application.”
Application Review – Application to the event does not guarantee acceptance into the event. The FLL Operational Partner or Event Coordinator will review your application and either approve or deny your team into the event. The team will be notified via email of the Event Coordinator’s decision. If you have any questions about the decision, please contact the Event Contact.
Part 3. Checking Status & Follow Up
The status of your team’s application for the event will display on the “Teams” tab, when you click on the individual team. It will also display when you click on the “Events” tab.
After the event registration is closed (Oct. 15,2012), the individual event organizer will contact you with more information and where to pay the event registration fee.
(Please note that if you want to attend the Rowen University Qualifier, you will not be able to register for any of the NJ FLL qualifying event or attend the NJ FLL State Championship. Registration for the Rowen Qualifier will need to be done manually through contacting http://www.firststatefll.org/. Qualified teams will advance to the Delaware FLL State Championship).
