LightSaders Rookie Invitational

A Student-Hosted Event

In the beginning of the season, we noticed that many rookie teams only compete for one season.  We organized our Rookie Invitational to give first and second year programs the opportunity to compete in a tournament tailored to their needs.  Our goal was to boost engagement in FIRST and inspire these inexperienced teams to continue their FIRST journey.

On March 4, 2023, the LightSaders hosted their 1st Annual Rookie Invitational, featuring alliance selection, elimination matches, judged awards, and a volunteer staff made up of veteran FTC team members.

We are looking for teams for this year’s event!
