Purpose of this site:

This is the public web site for Hudson Valley FIRSTR LEGOR League. We will provide information about FLL in the Hudson Valley, and our tournaments.

It does not replace or supersede the information available on the FIRST website (http://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/fll and http://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/flljr). Rather it is intended to provide information specific to the program in the Hudson Valley region of New York.

It is our hope that the information here will be instructive, and assist in creating a successful season for youth from the Hudson Valley.

Please help us to keep this site a place for the professional exchange of information. Everyone involved at HVFLL is a  volunteer, donating a significant amount of personal time to provide this valuable program to all.

Qualifier Tournaments for Hydro Dynamics and Aqua Adventure are still in the planning stages, but here is the likely schedule for this season:

Note: The numbers in the columns indicate the planned number of teams of each type we will support. We may adjust the number of FLL Jr teams based upon registrations.

And occasionally we do things just for fun...  At our 2013 championship tournament an FTC team doing a demo challenged the Cadets from the United States Military Academy (West Point) with their military robot to a competition at the FTC Ring It Up!
