FLL Ontario Resources and Training
Some of the training available to Ontario teams will be provided through an online format and sometimes the training can be a face-to-face session in a particular region. Please check back often as this page will be updated with information throughout the season.
The official FIRST LEGO League Team Resources page has lots of goodies on it and is a great place to start. You can check it out here: http://firstlegoleague.org/challenge/teamresources
