FTC Qualifying Tournaments in 2020-2021
As many of you already know, FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) has arrived in Ontario!  In this, our first year, we will be hosting a single official event - the FTC Provincial Championship on Sunday, January 12, 2020 at Durham College.  All are welcome to come check out that event!  

FIRST Canada has been planning ahead to the following season of 2020-21 and we will be selecting a few FRC teams to host a small number of official FTC Qualifying Tournaments which will feed into our Provincial Championship.  Are you interested in being an FTC Qualifying Tournament Host next season?  If so, please review this application with your team/coaches and submit the form by the deadline of November 29th, 2019.
