CoderZ League 2023
How it works
Practice makes perfect and that couldn’t be truer for CoderZ League.
Like any pro, your training camp is critical to your success in the competition. Participate in a series of activities that will prepare you for what to expect when it matters most. While players won’t receive points for the training camp, it will power up your skills so you can put your best foot forward in the upcoming competition!
Training Camp open on August 29, 2023. Be ready!
Teamwork makes the dream work! In the training camp stage, the option of creating a teams is available! Build your team of up to six students and pick both a name and flag that will represent your team and carry you to victory.
Teams will be divided into regions based on geographic location, and will face off in different games through multiple stages
All Teams are divided into regions based on geographic location. Teams can access to three games which include various missions*. In the missions, students learn and practice the mechanics which they will later use to complete the challenges. Missions allow students to earn points that will be added to their team's totals.
After 3 Weeks
After 3 weeks, the three Challenges* are OPEN.
The challenges will test all the concepts that the students have learned so far. There is one challenge for each game.
Unlike the regular missions, only the highest scoring student will count toward victory for their team.
After 5 Weeks
After 5 weeks into the competition, the final challenge will be added to the Junior and Pro division - BasketBot for Junior and ToppleBot for Pro. This challenge is structured like all the others but is MUCH harder. At the end of the preliminaries, bonus points are awarded to teams depending on their position on the previous challenge’s leaderboard. These points will be added to the points they earned for missions, and all points together will be called the “overall score” for the preliminaries. Long story short, the more you practice, the better you score, the more chance your team has of GOING FOR THE GOLD!
