Welcome to the Allendale Robotics 2022-23 Signup Form. We are excited to be offering programs for our K-12 students.
In 2022 we modified our programs from the past to provide a better experience for you and your students. With this, we transitioned our K-8 students to the VEX Robotics programs provided through the RECF (Robot Education and Competition Foundation) and our 9-12 students will continue with the TriSonics, our FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team provided through FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). For the 2022-23 and beyond we will be keeping this model of programs since we found it has provided a great experience for our students and allows the programs to be flexible.
This year we have a single form for all programs. Based off our the students grade the form will bring you to the required program.
Our programs are all run through a volunteer network made up from industry professionals, parents, alumni, etc. This past season we had 28 that helped us to make our programs possible. We are always looking for more help to keep making these programs possible. In our K-8 programs we do ask for parents to help coach due to the amount of teams and volunteers needed and we do not have dedicated coaching. For our 9-12th Grade program we also need volunteer help in many areas, both technical and non-technical. If you are able to help in any of the programs please let us know. If we don't get enough volunteers then we will need to limit the number for teams we have.
For more specific information on the teams please visit our website at http://www.allendalerobotics.com
Please note that some of our team fees are increasing (after many years of no changes) due to the increased costs we are seeing in the programs. These will be re-evaluated at the time of the program starts.
