Attending an Event

We are only guaranteed two events per season, so we invite everyone to come and see the culmination of the team’s work. This includes parents, friends, and supporters.

We know the order of when each team is supposed to go, but not the specific time as competitions tend to run long or short.

Team Member Expectations

All team members are expected to treat everyone with respect not only because we represent our team, but also because we represent Community High School.

You should be at the right place at the right time doing the right thing. What does that mean for the competitions? It means members may only be:

ONE: In the pit.

TWO: In the stands.

THREE: At the team table in the cafeteria.

All students are expected to attend the competitions unless there is a pressing reason for them not to. No student will be left out of the fun, and all will be given an opportunity to support the team.

Volunteering at Competitions

Parents are encouraged to attend all the events too! Personal experience is required to truly understand the feeling of a FIRST robotics competition. We also need their help with team transportation, meals, and corralling. There will be a signup with food needs for the events.  We need parents to donate at least part of the food for meals at the events.
