New to racing? So are we!
August of 2019 will mark the start of the LEADR League. Though some of our pilots will start the season with experience, many will be brand new!
Many of the schools and pilots joining the league are doing so for the first time. Many young pilots have never raced before, or have barely even learned how to take the controls. Not to worry - this is a learning league as much as it is a competitive racing league.
Part of the design of the racing teams is to use whatever drone you have access to - or borrow one of ours - and learn as you go! We want this league to be great fun for everyone, and a wonderful learning environment.
Our experienced pilots will work with new pilots to make them feel comfortable in the arena while providing support, education, and technology as needed. We hope to build the league's strength through education and experience!
This league is for everyone...almost.
We designed this league with students and teachers in mind. We want this league to be educational and fun, but to also be a way for schools to connect and showcase what they are doing with drones in education.
If you are a drone club or school that just wants to race and win, this isn't the spot for you. We love a good competition, but we want to make it fun for students of all experience levels. So, if you are a high-end pilot or racing team, be ready to share your experience with others to help everyone grow!
The league is aimed at middle school and high school students - from all over northern Ohio from Cleveland to Sandusky and beyond. We hope to offer a series of events throughout the school year, in locations where only a very small travel budget is required.
We hope to be able to secure enough timing equipment, racing equipment and technology to not make hosting an event cost-prohibitive. Stay tuned for more on designing and hosting an event at your school.
