Kendrick Castillo Memorial Tournament (KCMT)

Join us on October 8-9 for two days of competition in Colorful Colorado. This event is dedicated to Kendrick Castillo from FRC Team #4418 of Highlands Ranch, CO. Kendrick permanently impacted his community through his commitment to FIRST Core Values. His passion for robotics and giving back to his community is a bar every FRC student should strive to meet. This event celebrates his life and spreads awareness of FIRST Core Values. The event will feature scrimmages and workshops for additional levels of FIRST programs.

We want at least 24 teams to get this event up and running, so sign up today.

This event will have an official field with an integrated FMS (and an FTA) and automated scoring. Several FRC teams in Colorado and Colorado FIRST will be planning this event and run it as close to a “Regional Event” atmosphere as possible. We hope to plan FTC and FLL workshops and scrimmages during this event and promote all levels of FIRST. More information will be coming soon so check back on the event website.

Nice to see this tournament happening again.
One of my friends from Hawaii, who relocated there, whose kids attend the school, posted this pic a few years ago. It was near the entrance of the school.


That’s a great picture! We hope this year it will be the best yet and become a annual event!

I can’t even imagine how much time and effort was necessary to make this event happen. Thanks everyone for a wonderful time! (And especially to 1339 for hosting!)


We had a great time! It was great to see such amazing teams from 3 different states and some old and new faces! Cant wait to see what these teams do in 2023! We are uploading our livestream to Colorado FIRST. Our day 1 is still uploading. We hope to make this an annual event with more teams, more opportunities (scrimmages/workshops and more ice cream and cookies :slight_smile: .

Thank you to all those who helped with this ammonizing event, and with load out. I didn’t think it was possible to tear down a field, box it up and get it ready to load into the truck in less than 1 hour! Thank you to our amazing FIRST community!

And congratulations to 4499, 1619 and 3807 (9997) for their win! And thank you to all the teams who came out competed, had fun and supported the event. Hope to see more teams next year!


It was a blast, can’t wait until next year. So much energy from the teams that were there!
