Top 20 CA FRC Teams: Pre-Season Poll

Pre-Season Poll

In mainstream sports, the media compiles a list of the top 25 ranking teams. In the Associated Press Poll, rankings are compiled by polling sportswriters across the nation. This poll is similar, in that a qualified panel of experienced and reputable members of the California FRC community vote on who they think the top 20 California Teams are for the 2013 FRC Season.

Voters have picked teams based upon robot success shown at competitions in the past, consistency of the team, and build season information about the team’s 2013 robot design and function.  Results will be shared weekly.

This poll is clearly an opinion poll of our panel of FRC experts.  Now we’d like to know your opinion.

Are they missing a team? Post you comments, supporting video links and/or photo links showing your ideas for the Top 20 CA FRC Teams.

      Could be tricky with 1,153 FLL Teams in CA (WOW!!!) . . . but you know we are always up for a challenge! Let’s talk about it.

    Congratulations to all of these teams! FIRST is quite an endeavor–mentally, physically, and psychologically–to all involved. We are proud to be a supporter of the event, and keep the updates coming! 🙂

      Thank you. We are so very grateful for Bishop-Wisecarver’s support! And yes indeed – quite an endeavor. Can you believe that some teams who competed at the Central Valley Regional are turning right around and will be at the San Diego Regional in a few days! We are continually amazed by all the energy and enthusiasm displayed.
