Power Play Coach Email Volume 12: 11-4-22 – It is time for events! Go even if you are not ready!!!
Greetings Coaches & Mentors!
If you are new to this email this is the place where you will find all of the Washington specific FIRST Tech Challenge information. Coaches in the FIRST system for the Power Play season will be added weekly. Every email from me will be numbered and that number lets you know which update it is, if you miss an update you can find it on our website.
Here is what I have for you today:
- Events are upon us!!!
Events are this weekend!!!
I am sure many of you are not feeling prepared for this weekend. You are not alone!!!
In fact MOST teams are probably not feeling prepared for this weekend.
Even if your robot is in pieces, go to your event, there is help for you at your event!!! You will find so many teams (both students and coaches) willing to help you and my guess is that your robot will be on the field before the event ends so don’t give up just because you are feeling not ready.
You will want to check the emails from your League Coordinators and be sure to bring anything they requested (an example is an extension cord and power strip, most LC’s ask you to bring that to tie into power at your pit table)
Also, make sure to print off your roster and be prepared to turn it in at every event. If you have students on your team that are not listed on your dashboard, you will need a paper consent form. You can find a copy of that form here: https://firstwa.org/first-tech-challenge/
Good luck this weekend everyone and most importantly, have fun!!
Have a fantastic week everyone!
