4. Tips from "Ref" Rich

The FTC Team Resources site is a great place to focus throughout the season.
Visit or click on the “Team Resources Quick Link” often as you prepare for the “Cascade”!

From the Ref’s perspective, field communication is vital to the tournament, so make sure to check out the “Wi-Fi Resources” and “The Field Control System” sections of the Team Resources site for important documents and guides to ensure good FCS connectivity! 

Submit Ref questions to and Rich will answer all he can in the weekly ARIZONA FTC BLAST

5. Donation Destination
