Registration 2013

Another season is upon us.
Registration begins September 27 and teams are debating their competition schedules.

Just something to start with, here are a couple of geographical time lapse looks at team growth each year since 1992.
They're in the form of a 21 year slide show.
Colors change to signify each event structure change, e.g., 1995: added a second event called Nationals, 2009:added the District system.
By the last slide Red is Championship, Blue are Regionals, Yellow are Districts, Green are District Championships, Purple are Teams.
Click through the slides or download and it should run automatically.If anyone wants to do a version featuring their own local area, all the maps are linked at the top of this page: http://www.team358.org/files/frc_records/index.php
For instance, I have one zoomed in to just show the development of local Long Island teams.

This is so great! Thanks for posting.

Re: Registration 2013

2:54pm hit 1000 registered teams.
That took a day and a half last season.
We're 50% over last year at this same time.

The next set of events now approaching initial capacity are:
  • (3 left) WPI Regional
  • (4) SBPLI Regional
  • (7) Waterloo Regional
  • (7) Silicon Valley Regional

Re: Registration 2013

Also, I have had trouble finding the open registration date... any help?

All times are at noon
Sept 27: Initial Registration
Oct 1: KOP option opens
Oct 4: Local Kickoff Registration begins
Oct 11: Second District Registration begins
Oct 11: CMP Registration for Pre-Qualified Teams begins
Oct 18: KOP Option closes
Oct 25: CMP Waitlist opens for non-2012 CMP-attending veterans
Oct 25: 2nd Regional Registration begins
Nov. 1: Open Event Registration period begins
Dec 6: All event registration closes
Dec 7: Initial payment due

Re: Registration 2013

The date you're probably looking for is on the Season Calendar: http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/calendar/


Initial capacity usually leaves at least 10 slots, sometimes more if big area growth is anticipated, for rookies who haven't registered yet.
If the rookies don't show, then waitlisted teams can get them. Sometimes not enough slots are reserved for rookies and the Regional asks for veteran team to voluntarily transfer elsewhere.
