Quick Start Guide

2️⃣ Register Your Competition Teams with the RECF

Team registration is required every year for new and returning teams. Be sure to register your team early in the season so you may register for events

3️⃣  Plan your schedule!

In order for your team to be effective, develop a schedule that meets your team’s availability, needs, objectives, and resources and stick to it! 

Teams benefit from the program proportionally to the effort they put into the program. As events approach, your team may decide to meet more frequently in order to better prepare for their participation in the competitions. 

TIP: Check out the RobotEvents.com Page to see the schedule of events, then plan your meeting schedule around these dates.
