In Michigan, we have adopted a qualifying tournament system. All officially registered FLL teams will have the opportunity to participate in ONE qualifying tournament (see "FLL Events" for a list of tournaments). Each qualifying tournament will advance a certain percentage of the teams to one of our two Championship Tournaments.
Q: Can you place my child on a team?
A: Michigan FLL does not place kids on FLL teams although we get this request all the time. Teams typically form on their own. See "Start a Team" under "Get Involved".
Q: How do I know if we are an officially registered FLL team?
A: This simply means you went through the registration process via the main FLL site. If your team is listed on the Michigan FLL Team List found under "Michigan FLL", you're all set!
Q: How do I register for a Qualifying Tournament in Michigan?
A: Registration for all qualifying tournaments will take place on the same site where you registered your team. For more information, see "Tournament Registration Process" above.
Q: Why can't we "officially" participate at more than one qualifying tournament?
A: This is our way of ensuring that each team has an equally fair chance of winning awards at the qualifying level and advancing to a Championship Tournament. If a tournament host has room and allows a team to participate as the team's second qualifying tournament, the team is ineligible to receive any awards and cannot use that tournament to advance to a Championship Tournament.
Q: Can we participate in both Championship Tournaments?
A: Absolutely not.
