Coaches and team administrators in the FIRST system for the RePLAY season will be added weekly.

Our next Coaches Meeting will be on 3/4 at 7pm. I am hoping to have both our Head Referee and Head Judge Advisor on for questions. I will be going over the event timeline and documents for teams. This will also be posted on our website soon under

Mini Challenge Raffle!
All teams that participated in the mini challenges should have received an email from me yesterday. I will be doing the raffle on Friday, and will be notifying the teams that participated of the winners! It will also be posted on our website here- https://firstwa.org/first-lego-league-challenge/challenges/mini-mission-challenges/
Invoices were emailed out on 2/17 to either your team admin’s email (if listed) or your main coach’s email address. If you are expecting an invoice and have not received one, check your spam/junk mail folder, often times we find they end up there.
If you did not receive an invoice, you can send an email with your team number in the subject line to email@example.com and Rob’n T can forward you a copy of your invoice. Note: Rob’n T is new and still learning the ropes. If you do not include your team number, she will not try to track down who you are, she will forward the email to me and your invoice will not get re-sent until I have time to look into it.
- All teams registered with FIRST as of 2/8 were sent an invoice. If your team registered with FIRST but is not participating this season, please let me know and we will make a note of it.
PS Timing constraints made it difficult to create single invoices with multiple team information. For that I apologize. However, I have gathered the invoices in groups by their “purchaser”. Those of you responsible for multiple team payments, will have those invoices. Thank you in advance for understanding!
The first event will start on March 14th.To see the event schedule- https://firstwa.org/first-lego-league-challenge/challenges/event-schedule/
*Teams will be added to the Remote Event Hub for their individual events after teams are placed in events.
If you have not registered for an event, please do so asap.
Event Registration Link- https://bit.ly/2021FLLEventRegistration
Teams will be placed in events when they have registered with FIRST, filled out the event registration, and paid their FIRST Washington invoice. Teams will be placed by the end of February.
*So far only 53 teams have paid! You wont be placed in an event until you pay! I will be placing paid teams this weekend, so if you haven’t registered for an event and paid, do so asap!
