Second Regional Event Registration Opens Today at 12 pm (noon) ET in TIMS: Beginning at 12 noon ET, teams in the regional model will be able to register for their second regional event in TIMS: https://my.usfirst.org/frc/tims/site.lasso. District teams who have registered for both of their district events will be able to register for a regional event at this time.
During this enrollment period, FRC teams will immediately go onto a waitlist for the FIRST Championship.
This is a change from prior seasons, when some teams were able to get slots immediately for Championship during this period.
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 waitlisted 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, or earn a wild card slot) are being accommodated.
