First Lego League

Today is the official start of Summer Vacation! Which means we have successfully finished our first year of homeschooling! (Give me a minute to pat myself on the back.)

And now I am looking ahead to what next year may bring. My son is part of an online school called My Tech High. He is very excited for next year as one of his courses is a Lego Mindstorm Robotics course. Which has brought me to researching the First Lego League where students form groups and compete in Robotics tournaments all over the world. My predicament is whether I should try and find an exsisting league, or create my own league?

Has anyone ever participated in First Lego League and can give me some insight?
