FRC Blog Volume 9 – Make sure you are registered for a kickoff

Make sure you are registered for a kickoff

Every team needs to select a kickoff to attend or your team will be marked as a my site. 

If your team is marked as a my site it means

  • You kit will not ship to you until after kickoff (so it may take a week or longer until you receive it)
  • You will be charged shipping by firstinspires

You can register for your kickoff on your firstinspires dashboard

You are not required to attend the kickoff, you can send someone to pick up your kit during the kit pick up window.

The recording from our last coaches chat is posted


I apologize for the confusion.  I thought all of the zoom meeting links had been removed but there was a zoom link still on our calendar so I know many of you were trying to attend the meeting but couldn’t find the correct link.

As I said in the last blog, we are switching over to teams for these meetings so be sure to check that the link you are using is a teams link.
