YOUTH PROTECTION PROGRAMS
FIRST and FIRST in Texas work together to provide impactful resources to coaches of teams to help safeguard and create boundaries with students.
Please take time to review the FIRST in Texas Youth Protection Resource page and adopt safeguards in the lab, during meetings and at our events.
Safety & Security is a TEAM EFFORT!Youth Protection
FIRST in Texas has a general set of safety rules for all of the teams in Texas while at events or even working locally. We ask that all of our teams enforce these basic rules on and off the field and in all programs.
For the FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Competition program, there are additional safety rules and regulations for teams on and off the field. While these are standing guidelines from FIRST in Texas, teams are free to impose additional equitable safety rules as necessary with our complete support.
