PlusOne's team, The Global Defenders, did not do very well. The groups have 2 minutes and 30 seconds to complete as many challenges as they can. Their were too many programs in the robot so PlusOne's teammate had to search for the program he wanted, wasting valuable time. After the second match, they had 5 points and were 17th out of 18. The high scores were 150 - 170 per match!
Mom knows about teamwork. When she went for her black belt, she was the team leader, but they were a TEAM! Everyone worked together for the goal. Mom felt the goals weren't spelled out, that one kid decided what was going to be done and that was it, but he wasn't the leader. The coach would "comment" on something, or "talk" to them about something, but mom didn't feel that they listened. If they were a team, why didn't they decide as a group what to do about the too many programs in the robot? Arrrrggggg. Sorry, mom needed to vent.
Mom is not sure if she will let PlusOne join next year.
