2022-2023 Season Team Registration Pricing (U.S. & 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.
