Cost & Registration

What does it cost to participate? Costs for fielding a FIRST LEGO League team vary depending on what level of participation.

Here are some basic cost parameters for a single team:

  • There are never any “per student” fees; all costs for individual team members are assumed by the team as a group.
  • New teams can expect to pay approximately $900 for team registration, a robot kit of parts, and a Challenge Set (formerly known as the Field Setup Kit). Additional costs for event participation, travel, food, team shirts and other optional items will vary. Veteran teams will pay less since the robot set can be used year after year. Team registration must be purchased every season.
  • FIRST offers many fundraising ideas and teams are encouraged to create their own. Grants are also available, as well as sponsorships provided locally, regionally and nationally by many corporations.
  • FIRST believes that no team that wants to participate should have to bow out due to lack of resources. We will do everything possible to make funds available to all teams who need extra help. 

New! Coming in August - Season Pass Registration!

Why stop at one team when the impact is so outstanding? Reach a greater number of students in a manageable way with a Season Pass. This registration option allows you the ability to involve more students and create 1 competitive team of up to 10 children to participate in an official event within your region.

There are two Season Pass options:

  • Small Season Pass – This registration option will allow you to run multiple groups of students through the program. You may run a total of 50 students through the season. Only 1 team may participate at an official event within your region.

  • Large Season Pass – This registration option will also allow you to run multiple groups of students through the program. You may run a total of 100 students through the season. Only 1 team may participate at an official event within your region.
