Getting Started

How to start:

If you are interested in joining or starting a competitive robotics team, or if you’d like to learn more about the ins and outs of robotics, then you are in the right place! Read the Administration Guide and Rookie Coaches Guide to get a full picture of a season-long robotics team commitment and what steps to take to start a team!


Commitment at a glance:

By joining or starting a team, either as a student or a mentor, you commit to meeting with your team on a regular basis. Robotics events require a commitment to teamwork, communication, and professionalism; to this end, we encourage you to spend time learning collectively with your team, building friendships and leadership skills while dedicating yourselves to advancing your  understanding of robotics and engineering. Robotics teams also need collective support and engagement from school administration, parents and volunteers from their community. You will learn a lot and go far throughout a robotics season, and with a fully committed team, you will learn even more and have a great time!
