Registration for all FRC Teams, and for all FRC Events other than some off-season events, are regulated by FIRST® headquarters, not FIRST® in Texas Foundation. In order to register as a FRC Team, the team’s coach and/or coordinator must Register with FIRST®, creating an individual profile and creating a team. If you are a veteran FRC Team, the system changed in 2016, so make sure to take some time to get acquainted with the new system.
After the team’s Lead Coach/Mentor has created a team, they will need to invite a 2nd Lead Coach/Mentor/Contact for the team. Both coaches must be screened through FIRST®‘s Youth Protection Program. The Lead Coach/Mentor also needs to invite each team member’s parent/guardian to register their child for the team. The purpose of this registration process is to ensure that all the necessary paperwork has been completed and is received byFIRST®.
