Four weeks until the grand reveal of the Rover Ruckus FTC game and I am pleased to announce that we will have five kick-off events located throughout Florida to ensure all teams are able to attend a local event. Your team can decide to attend any of the five events. This is your opportunity to learn about the new game rules, meet other teams, and learn about the Florida FTC program. I encourage all teams to attend one of the kick-off events.

You can start learning about this year’s FTC game rules by reviewing Part 1 of the Game Manual located on the following website: https://www.firstinspires.org/resource-library/ftc/game-and-season-info.
