About Virginia/DC FLL

PHOTO: RobotVirginia/DC FIRST LEGO League (VA/DC FLL) is a separate locally managed affiliate under the global FIRST LEGO League organization. In 1999, the first FLL team formed in Virginia had traveled to Alabama to participate in an FLL tournament. The next year, Virginia FLL started with 50 teams and one state tournament. Since then FLL participation has grown rapidly to more then 4,800 participants in more than 600 teams. In 2007 the teams in the District of Columbia joined the Virginia FLL teams and VA/DC FLL was born. This year FLL teams will participate in more than 20 regional qualifying tournaments in November and the most successful teams will meet at James Madison University in December for championship competitions.
