Junior Division FPS
KAAC sponsors FPS Junior Division for students in grades 4-6. The Junior Division is offered as a separate competition and is not part of Governor’s Cup Competition.
A team of four students in grades 4-6 may participate in the Junior Division of FPS. Please be aware that students may not take part in both the State Competition of Junior Division FPS and Middle Grades State Finals FPS, because the events are held simultaneously. Sixth grade students may not participate in the Elementary division of Governor’s Cup.
- Qualifying Competition: December 8
- State Competition: March 11, 2017 at the Governor’s Cup State Finals.
A school pays a Junior Division registration fee of $50 for the first team and $25 for each additional team it registers
- The Qualifying Competition topic is the Regional Governor’s Cup FPS Topic.
- The State Competition is the State Governor’s Cup FPS Topic.
Volunteer to host the Junior Division qualifying competition on the sign-up form. While the competition date may not be changed, all teams participating at a particular site may choose their own start time. As soon as the registration date closes, host sites will be determined. An email notification will be sent to all coaches telling who will be hosting their respective competition.
The Junior Division state competition is held at the same time the Middle Grades and High School Governor’s Cup FPS State Finals are held on the Saturday of the Governor’s Cup State Finals.
Register before November 3 at the link below.
Substitutions may be made for any of the four players up until the time the competition begins. Remember–four students are required to participate for each team.
The qualifying booklets are evaluated after the original booklets are returned to KAAC. Booklets are recoded and emailed to the coaches to be scored by your local school’s evaluators. All completed score sheets and ranks are due by January 4. Notification of advancement to state will be announced three weeks following the the return of rankings (anticipated date will be January 26). The top teams are invited to the state finals. State team booklets are evaluated on-site by FPS trainers.
