PLAYMAKERS Coach Email Volume 2- 10/27/20 Season Info!
Greetings Coaches! Welcome to PLAYMAKERS!
If you are new to this email this is the place where you will find all of the Washington specific FIRST LEGO League Explore information. Coaches and team administrators in the FIRST system for the PLAYMAKERS season will be added weekly. Starting this season, every email from me will be numbered. That number lets you know which update it is, if you miss an update you can find it on our website.
I have 3 items for you today:
- Season Information
- Additional Information from FIRST
We will be holding events this season. Events this season will be remote only, and will use FIRST‘s Remote Event Hub for teams to interact with volunteers and upload information and videos. I do not yet know exactly how this will work for the Explore Festivals, but as soon as I have that information I will pass it on to you.
We are shifting our traditional season of events to start at the end of January, and will be hosting one Festival event per month. Registration for these Festivals will open in December. Reviewing sessions will be done over Zoom or another platform. Teams may attend one event only. All youth and adult team members must be registered online and added to the teams roster to participate.
FIRST Washington Fees
The fee for participating this season with FIRST Washington will be $50. Teams will be invoiced when they register for a remote event.
Additional Information from FIRST
FIRST has added additional information around the remote event hub that we will be using this season for our remote events, and access to FIRST@Home. There is a very helpful document available on this page around season guidance for COVID interruptions. Both links are provided below.
Teams are allowed to purchase one additional Explore set this season from their dashboard when they register, or after they have registered while supplies last!
