Greetings 2018 FIRST® Championship Teams:

We are looking forward to seeing all of you at the FIRST Championship in Detroit at the end of the month! 

To start, we encourage you to visit the 2018 FIRST Championship website for important event details, including an Event A-Z Guide. This website is updated often, so check back periodically for new posts. We also recommend that teams use the FIRST Championship app to stay up to date with Championship specific information.

Please keep the following points in mind as you Plan your Visit.

Travel Discounts: We’re only weeks away - now is the time to book your FIRST Championship travel and get the best picks before they’re gone!  Book your discounted hotel, car rental, ground transportation and airfare with FIRST®. When you book through FIRST, you’ll be booking secure and safe travel that’s been vetted by us at the best price.  For more information, check out Championship Travel Discount webpage here.  Don’t delay!

You’re invited! Join teams from around the world to tour the LIFT and IACMI Innovation Facility during the International and Long-Distance Students Reception. RSVP by April 15. Details here
 
Shipping your Robot to Championship: All competing teams MUST ship their robot to the Championship event, using the FedEx donation. ALL shipments must arrive prior to April 20. Teams who qualify at Regional Events will receive electronic shipping documents via email. All teams should make sure to keep an eye out for communication from frclogistics@firstinspires.org concerning shipping your robot. More information about the shipping process, as well as a crate construction guide, can be found on the Robot Transportation page.
 
Stream matches right in your Pit! Bring a TV or Monitor to hook up to the provided RF Cable Drop and view feeds from each sub-division live feed, as well as the sub-division standings. Please reference the Pit cable specifications ahead of the event.
 
Attendee Registration: Make sure to pre-register your team members ahead of time, so that you won’t have to wait on site. All attendees must be badged for the FIRST Championship. Pre-registration makes the check-in and badging process easier for you and shortens your wait time in line. A shorter wait time means more time for your team to enjoy the event! Attendee registration will remain open through the week of the event. 

Reference the Hotels and Badging page for more information and to pre-register.
