NEW STUDENTS
We are a year round Robotics Clubs with different FIRST Programs. The best time to join in is during the summer time (beginning July 18th).  This is due to the different competitions schedules of all FIRST Programs.  Joining during the summer will help make time for everyone to meet and work on off season events, prepare for the new season’s challenge, enjoy off-season events, community service and robotic demonstrations.  The new FRC season starts at Kickoff on the 1st Saturday in January, build season last for 6 weeks and competitions can run through the end of April.

Jr. FLL (6-8 yrs old), FLL (9-14 yrs old), and FTC (7-12 grades) seasons tend to start in the end of August/beginning of September.

Please note that each teams requires an Adult, 4-H Approved Volunteer as a Coach.  If we do not have volunteers to Coach, we do not have the ability to have all the programs under FIRST Robotics.

MEETING SCHEDULE
Our meeting schedule is posted on our forum.  Meetings are held year around, most Mondays and Wednesday at our build space.  Build and competition seasons meet more often.
