Below is some helpful info on CoderZ League and how it all works.
CoderZ League Format what is important to know before registration:
We don’t typically offer demos for the League as we try not to give a competitive advantage; however, you can learn more through the CoderZ Fall League – How It Works, and the user guide published per competition.
Please note that CoderZ Spring League and CoderZ League in a Box – are shorter versions which include the training camp and the competition phase. The competition includes 3 games with missions and challenges.
Each division has a different robot:
· The Novice Division – Zappy (CoderZ Virtual Robot)
· The Junior Division – EV3
· The Pro Division – Ruby (CoderZ Virtual Robot)
The Novice and Junior are block based (Blockly), while the Pro Division provides challenges available in Blockly and Python
We do have options for conducting your own League with endless possibilities by hosting your very own league at your school, after school, summer program and more!
Absolutely! CoderZ was designed to provide accessible learning experiences to students and teachers from all over the world. The web-based environment requires internet access and computer.
Novice Division: 4th-6th grade and Junior Division: 6th 9th grade. Students may participate in higher divisions, but not in lower divisions (example: students from the Novice division may participate in Junior, but Junior division students are not allowed to participate in the Novice division as that would be unfair to the younger students).
How the Registration Works?
Our recommendation is to have 6 students per team. A team can participate with less than 6 students with a minimum of 3 students. Smaller teams are at a disadvantage for generating points is easier with more people on the team.

CoderZ League Requirements
The short answer is no!
Novice Division is suggested for students in 4th – 6th grade. No background knowledge is required and teachers from any discipline can lead their students in this journey.
Junior Division is suggested for students in 6th – 9th grade with experience in Cyber Robotics 101 or are robotics competition alumni.
Pro Division is suggested for students in 7th – 12th grade with experience in Cyber Robotics 102 or are Upper middle school & high school robotics competition alumni
This depends on you and your students. Students can spend as little as 1 hour per week participating. Students who allocate more time to the competition will have the opportunity to improve their knowledge, skills, results, and scores anytime and anywhere they have access to a computer and the Internet.
· Foster student motivation and curiosity during each competition phase.
· Help your team/class define a strategy.
· Monitor students’ involvement and progress levels.
· Encourage and empower everyone to contribute to their team/class success.
· Ask questions and help your students get their own answers.

About CoderZ League
CoderZ League (formerly CRCC – Cyber Robotics Coding Competition) is an exciting, engaging, and entertaining virtual robotics competition for students of all levels to participate and learn about STEM, robotics, and coding and to ignite their technology career paths. CoderZ League is cloud-based, can be accessed from any computer, and uses simulation of virtual 3D Robots that perform complex tasks and missions. Using strategizing, collaboration, and acquired programming techniques, students will compete within their team, class, school, district, and state to win stages and progress to the finals.
The major difference is the difficulty level of the challenge. CoderZ league Junior is a beginner to intermediate level of coding and is great for students with little or no coding background or with basic experience in coding and/or robotics. CoderZ league Pro requires an intermediate to advanced level of coding knowledge.
CoderZ League is our new brand for CRCC. But besides our new branding, CoderZ League presents two different challenges for different skill levels, while the game, goals, and environment are more exciting and engaging!
CoderZ League Junior is ideal for beginning coders, schools new to CoderZ League, and for students between 5th and 8th grade*.
CoderZ League Pro is ideal for students between 7th and 12th grade *.
*Students in any grade level can participate in either League. However, the best fit is for the grades mentioned.
CoderZ League is available for teams across the globe, from a small group of up to 5 students to an entire school.
Students work together and earn points as a team based on their achievements.
Register and secure your participation.
