2022-2023 Season Team Registration Pricing (US & Canada) 
We are making needed adjustments to our 2022-2023
season registration fees – the first ever increase for
FIRST® Tech Challenge teams – so we can continue to create and deliver high-impact programs and events while investing in
our community’s future. Effective May 15, 2022, the
FIRST Tech Challenge team registration fee for teams in the U.S. and Canada (those who register through the FIRST® Dashboard) will be $295 for all teams, which is an increase
of $20. Additionally, costs for some products purchased through the
FIRST Dashboard will increase, though will still retain substantial discounts for registered teams. Read our pricing announcement for more details about these changes.

Did Your Team See “More Than Robots”? 
“More Than Robots,” an original documentary capturing
the excitement, heart, and hope of the
FIRST experience, began streaming Friday, March 18, on Disney+. If your team has Disney+ access, be sure to experience all the FIRST feels with your #omgrobots crew! On the FIRST Community blog, we shared seven tips for hosting the ultimate “More Than Robots” watch party, including movie bingo, robot snacks, and virtual screening opportunities.  


FIRST Signing Day 
FIRST Signing Day is Coming! In May we’ll be virtually celebrating and recognizing the graduating class of 2022 and sharing resources for how you can celebrate locally with your teams in-person.
