Helpful hints for REGISTERING A TEAM:

  • Each team is required to have TWO SCREENED adult coaches. Coach screening (Youth Protection Program) is done through the FIRSTInspires registration process (at no cost).
  • Ordering robot kits and field set up kits can happen as soon as you have two coaches registered in the system and pay the team registration fee. (*If you are a LEGO Foundation team, Do Not Order Your Product Yet – wait for confirmation from ACADIA ROBOTICS.)
  • Once both coaches are screened you can then invite team members to join your team.

PAYMENT: Please use this information as a guide.
