About Qualifier Registration
This year's regional qualifier fee is $145.00 per team. Registration is not complete until payment is made. Payment must be received by Nov. 6th.
All qualifier fees are non-refundable.
Qualifier locations are first come, first serve. Teams may cannot change their qualifier site after registration. Teams may only register for one qualifier.
To register for a Qualifier, teams must already be registered with FIRST. Qualifier registration will be handled through the Perot Museum of Nature and Science teams do not need to register for qualifiers on their FIRST dashboard.
If paying by credit card, teams may register online. Payment by credit card is strongly recommended and the best way to ensure your spot is held.
If paying by check or purchase order, teams must call Reservations at 214.428.5555 (press 8) to register with payment ready to be made. After giving your payment details, team number and coaches contact information to Reservations, you must mail in your check or purchase order within 7 days. You may mail your check in early but this does not reserve your spot; you must call Reservations to complete your registration.
Include your team's name and number as well as the coach's name on your check.

In order to make the North Texas Regional FIRST LEGO League Tournament a success, we will need more than 100 volunteers to help with a myriad of essential tasks. Included below is a breakdown of volunteer types along with the approximate number of hours of commitment, most of which take place on at the Championship. Some positions require training but most do not.
The first step to volunteer to register for free through FIRST. Click on Event Volunteers and then on the next page click on Volunteer Registration in the gray box to the right. Once you move through the process, you can sign up for specific events and roles. If you need additional information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteering for FLL events is an extremely fun and rewarding way to see the hard work, dedication, and humor that teams put into their robots, projects, and Core Values over the last several months. Events are fast-paced, exciting, and lively with a role for just about anyone!
Qualifier events need volunteers, too!
Fifteen qualifying tournaments will be held on Saturday's in November and December. These events are smaller than the Championship but require similar volunteer roles. If you are interested in volunteering for a Qualifier, you can also sign up for those in the same steps outlined above.
Frequently Asked Questions
