FQA – Frequent Questions Answered

Here are some frequent questions answered:

  • How do I order trading pins for the state competition?

Go to the ‘State’ menu and click on the ‘Pin Trading’ page for complete instruction.

  • Why have I not received my teams State pin order in the mail yet?

State pin orders are NOT sent to teams.  The orders are picked up close to the information booth at the State Competition by a coach.

  • When will the state tournament schedule be posted?

The state of California has 10 different regions which have their regional tournaments on several different weekends.  All regional tournaments need to be completed and much planning needs to happen for such a large state.  The state tournament schedule will be posted a week prior to tournament and you will be notified of its posting.

  • How do I register a judge for the state competition?

Contact your regional director with the judges information so that the director can complete the advancement of the judge to the state level.

  • Can I request a special time to perform a long-term problem solution?

Coaches can make scheduling requests using the “special requests” section on the team registration form when registering.  Scheduling requests can only be related to timing conflicts for students competing on multiple teams, coaches coaching multiple teams, or exceptional circumstances as approved by the state director for the state tournament.   We make every effort to honor requests of this nature but due to the size of the tournament it is not always possible.

  • How do I sign-up my parent volunteer?

Each team needs to have one parent volunteer for a 2-2.5 shift on the day of the State tournament.  Click on the link and choose the time slot and job that your parent volunteer would like to volunteer for.   Parent Volunteer Sign-Up Genius

  1. Hello, Our team recently made it to the state finals and I’m not sure my daughter can make it to the event. Will her team need to forfeit if they don’t have the minimum number of 5 team members? Thank you.

  2. hello,
    How do I register my daughter as a Volunteer for the State tournament?
    She already volunteered at the regionals

    1. Thank you for contacting us about volunteering.

      There are two ways to help at the State tournament. If your daughter volunteered at the regional tournament you should contact your regional director to sign up. The other way to sign up to help is to go to this link and pick how she would like to help: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b4ca9ae2ea7ff2-2018.
