FLL teams are required to attend two 1.5 hr meetings each week, starting in September and concluding in December/January (depending on when the state championship is hosted this year). Some teams may elect to meet over the summer to prepare for the season.
Applicants must be able to attend BOTH meeting days each week in order to register.
Teams are small so each student has a great impact on the success of the team.
Just as a sports team would require, we expect our students to make FIRST LEGO League a priority during the challenge season.
Please refer to our website for each code of conduct before submitting this application - a signed copy will be required to be placed on a team. http://fsarobotics.com/2018-enrollment/fsa-robotics-codes-of-conduct/
Students will be placed on teams in the order of:1. Coaches & Program Admin2. Mentors3. Program Supporters
If we do not have enough coaches to form teams, we will contact our mentor and program supporters to consider upgrading to a coach. Otherwise, remaining #2 and #3 level families will be placed on a waiting list until we find enough coaches. We encourage all parents that can commit to coaching apply to the position to ensure placement.
Each FLL team will require at least 2 coaches and 2 mentors to be considered a team. This means that our coaches have fellow parents to help support them at each meeting.
We require all of our coaches to attend a training workshop. Check our website for details on dates and times of workshops. Registration is required to attend.
If your child is placed on a team, be sure to respond to your email promptly so you do not risk your child being placed on a waiting list - there will be a deadline listed on your email.
We ask that each family confirm their placement promptly. Once we receive your confirmation, you will need to send your payment and signed forms in within 7 days. Your email will contain instructions on how to do so.
Please note, once payment is received the fee is non-refundable unless we're able to find someone to replace your child.
All waiting list families will receive an email by June 1 with their status.
