First fare 2013 district model overview 2014

  1. 1. Getting to St. Louis AN OVERVIEW OF THE WASHINGTON/OREGON DISTRICT MODEL
  2. 2. Be careful hanging out under arch
  3. 3. District Model    The district model turns control of the FRC events to local organizing committees The goal is to reduce the costs for teams while at the same time increase the number of plays for teams. Costs are reduced by  Play FRC events in smaller venues (large high schools and colleges) closer to home  Eliminating the cost for a second play  Reducing the ‘professional’ overhead by running our own equipment with our own volunteers
  4. 4. How Common is District Model?  Michigan has been doing this for 5 years, Mid-Atlantic for 2 years, PNW and New England in 2014  Ultimate goal is to provide high quality experiences to every school in our district   Reduce the amount of time at each venue for the teams   Allow each team to play more times for their money Ability to bring more non-FIRST students to live events As the FRC program continues to grow, we are running low on resources for large events    Commercial venues are difficult to reserve and expensive Regional event expenses are funded locally USFIRST is doing this across the country by 2017  Better to be in the leading group
  5. 5. Language  District Competition – held locally  District Championship – One in each District, advance to Championship  Regional – still exist in areas where the District model is not implemented  Championship – St. Louis world championship  GP – Gracious Professionalism
  6. 6. 2014 FRC Competition Season • • • • • Build season Jan 5th thru Feb 18th. District Level Events during FRC weeks 1 thru 6, PNW District Championship week 7 (April 9-12, 2014) World Championships expected to be April 23-26 This plan estimates the number of FRC teams at 185-200 teams.

  10. 10. Notes on District Events  Smaller venues. Seating is typically in the 1200-1800 range    40 teams x 30 people = 1200 Expect some parking and elbow-room challenges – GP required. Smaller venues may require smaller pits   Proximity to services will be different   Might need to consider this in your pit layout as we might drop to 9’x9’ pits We are aware that teams will be traveling. Our venues are generally not too far from services. However, some are in suburban areas. You can bring your own food and water  This is a huge budget item for many teams. Yay!  Generally, all venues will also have concessions available.
  11. 11. Stretching FRC Dollars  Standard FIRST registration fees  $5,000 for veterans, $6,000 for rookies  Each team plays twice for the usual fee!  We will offer 3rd plays if space available  Likely  No  to cost an extra $1,000 points District Championship  Registration is $4,000
  12. 12. Scoring Overview  FRC Teams will accumulate points at the first two District events they attend in chronological order, as well as at the District Championship.  Teams will not earn any points at third or subsequent District events, nor at any Regional events they attend during the 2014 season.  Points earned at District Championships will be multiplied by three and then added to points earned at District events to determine the final season points total for the Team.
  13. 13. Scoring at Competitions Scoring Category Points Win a match Lose a match Tie a match 2 0 1 Alliance Captain (top 8) (performance) 17 minus the ranking (16 for 1st, 8 for 8th) Draft Order Acceptance (peers) 17 minus the selection order (12 for 5th) Elimination Round Performance 5 points for each match won in which a Team’s robot participated, ONLY for the Alliance that wins the series Judged Team Awards 10 for Chairman’s Award 8 for Rookie All-Star Award 8 for Engineering Inspiration Award 5 for all other awards Team Age 10 points for each Rookie team 5 points for each Veteran (awarded once per season)
  14. 14. Notes  District Teams will only be able to win FRC’s most prestigious awards – Chairman’s Award, Engineering Inspiration Award, and Rookie All Star Award – once per season at the District level. This supports the broader distribution of those awards.  District Teams do not earn points for their actions at any Regionals they may attend, but are still eligible for Team awards at those events, and any benefits that may go along with winning those awards, such as earning their way to the FIRST Championship. However, if a District Team does earn a slot at the FIRST Championship while attending a Regional event, that slot does count against the total Championship allocation the District is receiving for the season.
  15. 15. District Championship    A total of 64 teams will be invited to the District Championship in Portland 10 of those teams will be there by winning the Chairman’s Award at a District event, 54 will be there based on their points There could be teams present who don’t compete with their robot. Those who won Rookie All-Star or Engineering Inspiration in a District competition but did not score enough points to be one of the 64 robots competing would be there competing for District Championship Award of same category.
  16. 16. Advancing to St Louis  24 teams advance from the PNW to World Championship  The exact breakdown is not yet complete  Chairman’s  Rookie  The Award winners (probably 3) All-Star and Engineering Inspiration rest by points ranking
  17. 17. Example: Team 9995  At Glacier Peak District   Chosen by second seeded Alliance (15 points)  Alliance wins quarter finals (10 points)  Alliance wins semi finals (another 10 points)   Seeded 8th after Qualification Matches   Wins 10, loses 3, ties 1 (21 points) Team wins Imagery Award (5 points) Team accumulates 61 points NOTE: Alliance points are calculated at the END of Alliance selection
  18. 18. Example: Team 9995  At Wilsonville District   Seeded 1st after Qualification Matches (16 points)  Alliance wins quarter finals (10 points)  Alliance wins semi finals (another 10 points)  Alliance wins the finals (another 10 points)   Wins 15, loses 0, ties 0 (30 points) Team wins Engineering Inspiration Award (8 points) Team accumulates 84 points
  19. 19. Example: Team 9995  Their point total after 2 Districts  61 + 84 + 5 points (veteran team) = 150 points  They would be invited to District Championship to compete on Engineering Inspiration  They MIGHT be invited to bring their robot to compete based on points.  Winning the finals at a District does not guarantee an invitation to District Championship
  20. 20. Example: Team 9995  At District Championship  Win 7, lose 4, tie 1 = 15 points  Finish seeded 9th Chosen  Moved into 8th seed in Alliance Selection process, and ends up Alliance Captain of 8th = 9 points  Win quarterfinals, and semifinals, and lose in finals (20 points)  Their score for consideration to be one of the 24 teams to worlds:  (44 X 3) + 159 = 132 + 159 = 291
