Ashburn Robotics hosts the Ashburn FLL Qualifier Tournament, the only qualifier in Loudoun County, as a way of giving back to the community that gave us such wonderful experiences and to give other children a chance to get involved in STEM. This tournament would be nothing without all our volunteers. In order to succeed, we need judges, referees, pit managers, queuers and a host of other volunteers.
On behalf of all of FIRST Lego League, we would like to thank all of you who have volunteered, giving up your time to get this event off the ground. Whether you’ve done this before, or are a new recruit, we’re glad to have you.
The tournament schedule can be found here.
What to Expect
Volunteering with FIRST is a great experience. As a volunteer, you’ll get to meet a bunch of amazing kids and see the creative ways they solved the FIRST Lego League Challenge. Volunteer check-in begins at 7:30 in the volunteer room, where coffee, snacks and volunteer shirts will be provided. All volunteers will also receive their assignments and any additional training they require. From about 9-12 volunteers will man their posts. Around noon, lunch will be provided and all volunteers will get a short break. After all judged sessions and robot runs have been completed, judges will deliberate and then all volunteers will convene in the Main Gym for the Awards Ceremony. After the conclusion of the event, we ask that the volunteers stay to assist in the break down of the tournament and clean up.
All volunteers will receive some form of instruction or training. No one will be assigned something they don’t know how to do. Judges, referees and table setters will all need to attend more in depth training.
Thank you so much for volunteering for the Ashburn Regional Qualifier Tournament. We’re very excited to have you. To access the volunteer assignments and training materials, please log in here. If you don’t know the volunteer login, you can contact the tournament Director, Mark Vanderlyn.
Volunteering is an amazing opportunity to give back to your community. As an FLL Volunteer, you’ll get to meet awesome people, get free food, a free shirt and support some of the scientists and engineers of tomorrow. The Ashburn Qualifier is an all day, high-energy, exciting event that lets you enjoy the new and exciting solutions kids from around Northern Virginia have come up with to solve this year’s FLL challenge.
