FTC Kickoff Events

The new season will kickoff on Saturday, Sept 6th, at 12 noon.  The game will be revealed online at  Game Manual Part 2 and the game animation will be available by link on the FIRST FTC site at that point.  Game Manual Part I has already been posted.

Local kickoff events are a great way to learn the new game and network with area teams.  There are 3 kickoff events occurring on Sept. 6th and each will feature a game reveal.  Teams must sign up to attend.  Thank you to the hosts!
