Staple additional FIRST® Consent and Release Forms to the Team Roster for any team member or coach who does not have an electronic consent form on file. A FIRST Consent form is required for every team member, coach, and mentor who will be with the team during the competition day. Your team will receive the following at Team Registration:

Wristbands: Wristbands will be provided for each team member and two coaches. Team members must wear wristbands at all times. Your team will need to decide what two adults will be spending the day with the students. NOTE: At least one adult coach is required to supervise the team at all times during the tournament.

Schedule of Events: Your team will be provided information about the tournament day, including a competition schedule.

Coaches’ Meeting
The Coaches’ Meeting will be held in the Competition Area at 8:15 AM. At least one team coach should attend this meeting. Make sure that another coach or mentor is assisting the team to set up their pit area during this time. At this meeting, your team’s coach will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet the Tournament Director
  • Meet the Head Referee
  • Understand the flow pattern through the competition area
  • Ask Robot Game questions
  • Ask any other tournament-related question
The Pit is where your team will spend most of the time. This is where you will work on your
robot and programming. This is also the area where you can enjoy downtime with your team,
get to know other teams, see their robots, and find out about their Innovations Projects. There
will be long periods of downtime – bring some small games that the team can play when things

are slow and some snacks and beverages. Your team will have access to:

  • One standard-sized table
  • At least two (2) chairs
Robot Games

Your team will participate four times at the Tournament Tables – the robot game will begin with

a practice round. Your robot performance score is the highest score your team achieves out of

the three official rounds.


The following awards will be presented at this tournament:

  • Champion’s Award
  • Core Values Award
