FRC Update: 2013 Championship Registration, 2013 FRC Season Dates, Ask an Expert

Greetings Teams:

2013 Championship Registration: Championship Registration for Pre-Qualifying Teams opens on 10/11/12 at noon EST in TIMS: Pre-Qualifying teams are as follows:

  • ·         Hall of Fame teams
  • ·         Original and Sustaining teams
  • ·         2012 Championship Engineering Inspiration Award winner
  • ·         2012 Einstein teams

New this season: Open Championship registration has changed to open Championship wait list registration. During this enrollment period, FRC teams will immediately go onto a wait list for the FIRST Championship.

As the number of FRC teams and events continue to grow, the number of merit-based qualifying teams also grows. We can’t predict the exact number of slots that will be available to veteran teams through an open registration process, but the number is likely to be small.

We will release FIRST Championship slots to wait listed teams as the season progresses and we become comfortable that all merit-based qualifying teams (teams winning awards at 2013 events that qualify them to go to Championship) are being accommodated.

For more information on Championship registration, including information on wait list registration dates, please visit:

As a reminder, initial regional and initial qualifying event registration opens on Thursday, 9/27/12 at noon EST.
