Scrimmages 

In 2016, CRUSH hosted our first ever FLL scrimmage. This event was

attended by 5 teams. 12 CRUSH members volunteered at this event,

investing nearly 50 hours. This event provided valuable experience

to local rookie teams & increased FIRST accessibility in Southern AZ.

helps prepare coaches for the season, making their teams more

successful. The Coaches Training also helps make Arizona FIRST

Tournaments 

In 2015, CRUSH ran and hosted our first FTC Qualifier, the only one in Southern Arizona, and only the second time Southern Arizona has ever had an FTC event. Our tournament in 2016 was even international, with 2 teams from Mexico. This tournament is open to the public and includes 14 teams from around the state, 75 volunteers, and more than 175 students. Twenty CRUSH members dedicated 300 hours to this event in 2016. 

 

Scrimmages 

With the notable increase of FTC teams in Arizona, CRUSH

recognized the necessity for scrimmage that would prepare

rookie teams. In 2016, CRUSH hosted our first ever FTC

scrimmage. This event was attended by ten teams.

Nineteen CRUSH members volunteered at this event,

investing over 170 hours. 

Growth 

The number of FTC teams in Tucson has doubled since

CRUSH bean hosting the Tucson FTC Qualifier. The event

facilitated this growth by increasing FIRST accessibility in 

Southern Arizona.
