Register for Off-Season Events

We’ve got an exciting calendar of FRC off-season events this year. Don’t wait to register your team! 

As a reminder, off-season events are hosted and run by FRC teams, not FIRST Washington. This means each events participation requirement, fees, and timelines may vary. 

All events will utilize the previous season’s game, CRESCENDO.

We will continue to share registration details for events as they become available.

Interested in Bunny Bots? Let us Know!

BunnyBots was developed by Team 1540 Flaming Chickens mentors and alumni and provides a way for FRC teams and new FRC members to gain vital skills before the build season.

For many students, this is their first experience making an FRC-quality robot. Bunny Bots is a light-hearted 1 day contest, focused on team and skill development.  The BunnyBots program aims to develop the technical foundation of rookie members and teach veteran members leadership and project management skills. This program addresses the problem of insufficient rookie training, allowing them to learn machining procedures and design basics to succeed in the intense build season. The game is released in early September, and teams sign up on a first-come, first-served basis. As a training tool, the game rules are loosely based on FRC rules. 

Details: 

  • Washington Bunny Bots: Either Sat Dec 14th or Sun Dec 15th (depending on interest level) 
  • Oregon Bunny Bots: Dec: 14th 
  • Cost: TBA 
  • Rules will be posted on or around September 1st, as will finalized costs and registration.

Thank you to all who marched in the Seattle Prdie Parade!
