    Questions & Answers

    • Does Iowa offer qualifier events?
      The FTC program in Iowa has implemented the league format for the past decade. Teams need to compete in meets (between 3-5) and accumulate scores which are then used at the League Tournament.
    • My team is not from Iowa (or Eastern Nebraska). Can we attend your events?
      Unfortunately, the FTC program in Iowa has "closed" borders, so only teams from Iowa and Eastern Nebraska are able to participate.
