Kansas City Region FLL Head Referee

This site contains information from the Kansas City's Regional Head Referee about this year's FLL Robot Game. It is intended as an aid for regional coaches and teams and will be updated throughout the season. No updates will be made after 5pm on the Friday before any regional tournament.


Site contents:


NOTE: Due to the decentralized structure of FLL anything on this page may be different in another region, at Worlds, or in any after-season competition. Everything here holds for any official KC Region FLL tournament and at pre-season tournaments where the refs are provided by KCFIRST. As of 9/8/2017 the tournaments where the site applies are:

  • Trailridge Elementary rumble on 10/21
  • CowTown ThrowDown rumble on 10/28
  • Olathe NW HS Qualifying Tournament on 11/11
  • Summit Lakes MS Qualifying Tournament on 11/18
  • Bingham MS Qualifying Tournament on 12/2
  • Wyandottte HS Qualifying Tournament on 12/9
  • Lawrence KS Qualifying Tournament on 12/16
  • Kansas City Regional Championship Tournament on 1/20/2018

This site may be considered authoritative in the precedence order from this year's GP5 rule:

  1. Current Robot Game Updates
  2. Missions and Field Setup
  3. Rules
  4. Local Head Ref

I'll be updating the page throughout the season as I answer questions from coaches & teams, as rules updates are released, or when I get other information that I feel may be of use to teams. If you have a question that isn't answered here you may email me at kcFLLref@gmail.com.
