Team Blast August 3, 2023

Hi , 


Program Updates, Deadlines, & Reminders

Joining us this season? We’re already counting down to event preferencing this September – if your team isn’t able to join us this season or needs some help to register, let us know through this short form.

Drive Base & Black Tote Opt Out available now: By default, all Kickoff Kits include a Drive Base kit & Black Tote, but veteran teams who are “event ready" can opt to receive vouchers instead of the Drive Base kit and/or the Black Tote by selecting “Drive Base Opt Out” or “Black Tote Opt Out” from the “Team Options” under the “Parts and Products” drop down. Your team’s Drive Base and Black Tote selection closes at 12:00 p.m. noon ET, October 19, 2023. A team is “event ready” if there are two (2) Youth Protection Program screened (U.S. and Canada) mentors and no outstanding tasks on your dashboard.


FIRST® Updates

It’s showtime! This week, we launched the 2023-2024 FIRST® LEGO® League MASTERPIECESM season, part of FIRST® IN SHOWSM presented by Qualcomm. Participants ages 4-16 from around the world (ages vary by country) will inspire students to imagine and innovate new ways to create and communicate art across the globe in a one-of-a-kind, art-inspired robotics season. Celebrate the new season with MASTERPIECE-themed wallpapers, social graphics, and posters. You can find all this info and more on the FIRST LEGO League Game & Season page.

Youth Protection Screening Renewal Reminder: A current Youth Protection Screening is required to volunteer, access your team’s roster, opt out of the Drive Base & Black Tote (veteran teams), and other important tasks throughout the season. Screenings expire every four (4) years, and you can check your screening status in the FIRST Dashboard. If your screening is expired, order your renewal screening now! For assistance, please contact Team Support Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. ET via email, calling (603) 666-3906, or live chat
