Hi Friend,

Are your lead mentors screened? Just a friendly reminder that FIRST® requires teams to have two screened lead mentors to be eligible to register for official FIRST events. Don’t delay and risk your team missing out on the fun!

To order your background screening visit our www.firstinspires.org website to log into your FIRST Dashboard; select the white triangle next to “Hello, (your name)” in the upper right-hand corner, and select Youth Protection Screening from the list.  Ordering takes less than 5 minutes, your Social Security Number is not required, and the cost is covered by FIRST. For more information, including step-by-step guides, please visit our Youth Protection Policy page. If you have questions or need assistance, please email safetyfirst@firstinspires.org.

Season Deadlines:  It’s never too early to check out the Season Calendar to see upcoming deadlines for event registration, award submissions, Kit & Kickoff registration, and more! We are still adding dates, so keep checking often.

2020 Events: Events for the 2020 season are continuously being posted on our Team & Event page. Take a look at the events we have posted so far, and talk to your team ahead of the first round of Event Preference Selection opening on September 19 at noon ET.

As always, we are here to help. Please contact our Customer Support Team with any questions.
