Parent and Student Start of Season Step by Step

Step 1 - School Application and Forms (Parents and Students)

These forms must be completed each year and turned into Coach Roberts in the AutoTech lab.

Step 2 - Register with FIRST (Parents and Students)

Each student must register and apply to join our FRC team via the FIRST website. Parents must also complete an online registration and sign a participation waiver.
FIRST Register / Login to Dashboard

Why this step is very important

  • Students that haven't had this completed will not be allowed to participate in FIRST Competition Events.
  • It is the only means for a student to be on the teams FRC Roster
  • Eligibility for Scholarships depends on records of FIRST registration and participation.

Step 3 - FIRST in Michigan Waiver

(This step will be done for each Event - we will send a link before the events)
Similar to FIRST Robotics Team Application and Waiver, FIRST in Michigan requires online waiver forms to be completed. The two (minimum) District Competitions we will participate in are coordinated and run by FIRST of Michigan. This is the reason FIRST of Michigan also requires a waiver form to be completed by all participants.

Step 4 - SP/2 Safety Training (Students)

(Skip this step for now - We will notify students when training is ready)
The Brighton Robotics team also requires all team members to complete the SP/2 safety training before they will be allowed to handle tools or work in the labs or shops we use. This is for the students' safety. The on-line class is a valuable training tool and utilized in industry.

Important note:

  • No Worries early on - Students will be instructed on this training as the pre-season progresses
  • Students will be given a pair of Safety Glasses at the beginning of pre-season. They are expected to bring them to all robotics training, build and competitive events as their personal protective wear.
