Westwood Robotics Varsity

Student and Parent Form

Dear Parents and Students,

We are looking forward to a great year competing in the FIRST Robotics Competition. Our goal is to get the Westwood FRC team into the top 10 teams in the state, but it will take a few things to accomplish that, as we are competing in one of the most competitive leagues in the world. In order for us to meet our goal we need:

  1. Dedication
  2. Hard Work
  3. Support of Parents and Mentors

Expectations

It is expected that members of an FRC team are willing and able to attend 2 meetings a week, as well as be available during tournament weekends.

Event Dates/Locations

3/7 : FLL (Westwood)

3/12 - 3/14 : Meet 1 (Fort Worth)

3/19 - 3/21 :  Meet 2 (Austin)

        It is also expected that members all volunteer at the FIRST Lego League event our school is hosting (shown above). We need all the help we can get.

If your student is accepted onto the team, please note that there will be a due of $175 which will be used to pay for items such as Team Registration and materials necessary for the team to function. For the Fort Worth competition, note that there may be additional fees for travel and board announced at a later date.

If you cannot afford the dues, then talk to Mr. Wilmot to get on the sponsorship program. This may allow you to be a part of our team regardless of your financial circumstances.

        We also strongly recommend learning more about FIRST, FRC and our team, as well as watch past year’s competitions and challenges. Information for that and more can be found on our website, team2583.org.

Please turn in the Student and Parent Acknowledgement Form along with the Student Application to be added to the Team.
