Pre-season (October 1st – Jan 7th)
During pre-season, it is our intention to meet approximately once a week for training. These training sessions will target specific skills and may or may not pertain to your goals for the team however they will be open to everyone.
In addition, each student is expected to raise funds by talking to companies, local businesses, and friends and family. FIRST is entirely non-profit and the entire organization is supported by our community.
Students are also expected to assist and mentor fellow FRC, FTC, FLL, and FLLjr teams. This involves a few after school or weekend sessions throughout the fall pre-season.
Lastly, we will on occasion have demos, sponsor events, and other activities for which participation is expected. These will usually happen 2-3 times in the fall and will not overlap holidays.
