How to find volunteers/league discussion
The purpose of this event is to equip FTC Teams from across the state with the knowledge and resources they will need during the offseason to prepare for the upcoming robotics season.
ASTRO is a program which exists to increase robotics knowledge as well as the competitive level in the regions in which ASTRO is currently working. One of ASTRO’s goals is helping teams in our respective regions- examples include hosting workshops, having mid-season and off-season check-ins, hosting summer camps, and hosting practices and scrimmages for teams to compete in before the competition season begins. The regions include the Panhandle/New Mexico Region – run by Chris Kallas, the West Texas/Del Rio Region – run by 4063 TriKzR4Kidz, and the Alamo Region – run by Rylee Lippenholz.
