A Beginner's Guide To FTC

Training Materials

Ctrl-Y has spent the past three years building a library of training workshops for use within their team including programming (Java) and CAD with Fusion 360.

These workshops consist of instruction documents in Google Drive available at the link below that walk students through every step to successful robot construction and programming.

Game Structure

Each year, the game is split into 3 distict parts:

  • Autonomous

  • TeleOp (Driver Controlled)

  • End game.

During each section, teams score points and once endgame is over, the match ends and the team with the most points wins.

Judging and Awards

In FTC competitions, it is important to not forget about the awards available because when looking at advancement, the awards are often more secure than having a good robot.
