What is the time commitment for FIRST® Tech Challenge coaches, volunteers, and team members?
In general, as a coach, volunteer, or team member you should meet with your team at least once per week during the build and competition season (September – April). Many mature teams also meet throughout the school year, and some compete in off-season events during the summer. You and your family can decide together how much time you can devote to the program. Like any sport or club, the time you invest in helping your team will add to your team’s success.
