FIRST Championship Houston Subdivision Assignments – Fresh Baked Bread

Apr 12, 2019 Written by Frank Merrick.



Delicious baking bread

You know that enticing aroma you experience when you walk into a bakery or are making bread from scratch at home? There’s something about it that makes you feel good and draws a smile.


We’re hoping you have the same experience when you see these subdivision assignments and preliminary match schedules.


It’s important to recognize that ‘preliminary’ means just that. We may have unexpected changes that lead to us rerunning match schedules. While usually the preliminary schedules and the final schedules are the same, they aren’t always the same, and you should be prepared for change.


New this year! We’re including pit locations on the schedule. This should help you more easily coordinate with other teams on your alliances if you are so inclined (and I hope you are so inclined).


To find your subdivision, you can put your team number in the search box at the top of this page and click ‘Jump.’ That will take you to the details for your team and you’ll be able to see where your team is assigned. We also added an interactive Pit Map! Quickly find any team by entering their number in the Search box on this page!


And here are links to the preliminary match schedules.


If you are traveling to Houston, I may see you there!

Thank you for posting the interactive pit map. Can you share a pit map that shows the inspection stations and pits in relation to B loading dock, so we can get an orientation?

Hello Carol!

Please find the full Pit Map in the Championship App (available for free to both iPhones and Android in their respective stores) or in the most recent blog here:
