The 2019 FFCC Martha Stark Memorial Scholarship Application is now available to all high school seniors and eligible independent performers! Please visit the application to learn more and apply! Applications are due no later than March 1, 2019.
At our 2018 Advisory Board Meeting this summer, there was a large interest in having a preseason director education day. We have been working hard to make this happen for you this season, and are pleased to recognize our season sponsors, Digital Performance Gear, for their support in making this event possible!
SUNDAY, November 4th is your chance!
Some of the greatest designers in our area will be available to support your early season brainstorming and help you develop ideas to get off to a great start with your 2019 shows. Randy Nelson, Michael James, Jill Moser, Stephen Porter, and Ryan Marsh will be on hand to offer our guard, winds, and percussion groups a place to share show ideas, music, costumes, flags, floors, and more to set you up for success as you begin your design process.
Please register this week, as space is limited. This is a free 30 minute consultation in Orlando. When you register, you will have the opportunity to select a block of time most convenient for you. After registration closes, you will receive an appointment time.
Registration closes on Monday, October 22nd at 11:59pm or when full.
We look forward to offering you this early season help with your teams as we continue to develop our annual education initiatives.
If you have any questions, please email Jamie@ffcc.org

Registration is now open for the 2019 FFCC Season! We’re excited to welcome our new and returning teams to the FFCC for our largest season yet, and our 35th annual FFCC Championships in Daytona Beach. Please read this update thoroughly for a hassle-free registration experience.
All teams, including returning members, need to register for the 2019 season before proceeding with online payment. There’s a handy how-to guide at the bottom of this post to help you.
New this year! You can purchase professional development courses at registration! Our partnership with E-Adjudicate allows you to purchase training courses for your staff as part of your registration. If your booster organization or school wants to purchase these for you, just add them to your cart! You can also pay separately at any time.
Super & Mega Pass Add-Ons
Don’t forget you can only purchase Super & Mega Pass additions to your registration with your initial registration.
Super Pass: 5 additional staff/chaperone passes for Premiere, Focus (perc/winds) & Championships events (not regular season events)
Mega Pass: 10 additional staff/chaperone passes for Premiere, Focus (perc/winds) & Championships events (not regular season events)
Here are some important deadlines to note:
The Initial Membership Meeting takes place on Sunday, September 16th in the Orlando area (details TBA). At this meeting, you are able to select shows if you have completed and paid for registration, and have a representative present. Teams attending this meeting will also receive valuable information for starting the 2019 season. While attendance at the meeting is not required, it is the only way to guarantee that, providing you are registered and paid, you will get into the shows you want, and be included in the first draw for show seeding. Teams not in attendance may still register and pay, but will be in a later draw depending on the date of registration, and will be added to the waiting list to any shows that have already reached capacity. Your representative at this meeting does not have to be a voting delegate, and you may represent more than one team, but you are responsible for getting information to the teams you are representing.
Registration fees increase.
All rosters and insurance information must be uploaded to your team profile by this date, or you lose your priority seeding, and are withdrawn from any contests. Once this is rectified, you are added back based on availability, meaning you may be placed on a waiting list if shows are at capacity. Rosters & insurance documents protect you as instructors, your schools, and the FFCC. It is vital that these documents are uploaded on time. Changes can be made throughout the season when necessary, but your initial document must be uploaded by December 15th.
Independent Teams: Roster (list of names) and Insurance Verification
Scholastic Teams: Scholastic Eligibility Form (ours or WGI’s) signed by your principal. If you have students from multiple schools, you must complete the Scholastic Eligibility Form AND the FFCC Multiple Schools Form.
December 15th is the last day to pre-order Senior Medals online.
In an effort to streamline the senior medal ordering process, senior medals may be purchased with your registration, or ordered anytime online, with a check or credit card, between now and December 15th. After 12/15, the only time to purchase senior medals will be at Will Call at Championships, while supplies last. Entering your number of seniors at registration is not the same as paying for senior medals. Everyone enters their number as an estimate for us, but you have to pay via the invoice generator/check or credit card for them to actually be ordered and guaranteed for you.
To order, go to your team profile!
Director’s How To Guides
