Tournament Information

 If you have questions, please send them to ftc.events@pennfirst.org.



Anti-static Treatment

The competition and practice fields will be treated with TECHSPRAY 1726 Zero Charge Anti-Stat Coating in an effort to reduce static electricity. Applying any coating to the field mats can alter its characteristics and increase the friction coefficient.  

Although we are taking steps to reduce static electricity build-up, robots locking up due to static electricity will not be cause for match replay.

Safety Glasses
Safety Glasses are required in the Pits and on the Competition Fields.  No exceptions.
