Rookie All Star Award

  • All throughout March 14th - March 17th the team showed outstanding enthusiasm and effort and got to experience the results of six weeks of hard work during build season. 
  • We made it through all our qualifier matches  with our rank averaging between 15-20.
  • Once qualifiers were done with, we were chosen for an alliance by one of the top 8 teams which allowed us to proceed to the Quarter-Finals.
  • The team tried it's best during these intense matches but we ultimately lost. This was the end of one of our chances to go to the Championships.
  • But there was still hope. At each regional competition, there are only five slots available for teams to move on to the next round of competition which is the Championships in Houston, Texas.
  • The three teams in the winning alliance took three of those five positions moving on to the next round. 
  • The fourth spot went to the team that won the Chairman's Award; an award that the Coding Academy Python Robotics team was ineligible of winning due to their rookie status. 
  • The fifth and final spot was awarded to the recipients of the Rookie All-Star Award.  This award was granted to the rookie team that best exemplified what the FIRST Robotics Competition stands for and has a working robot that met the goals of the competition.  The Phoenix Coding Academy Python Robotics Team 6833 won the Rookie All-Star Award and clinched the final spot for the Championships in Houston.
