International Game Pieces and Kit and Kickoff Registration

Nov 07, 2017 Written by Frank Merrick.


International Game Pieces

As we said in this blog, teams outside the United States have the option of receiving an extra set of game pieces in their Kickoff kits in exchange for 20% of their FIRST Choice credits. This option closes this Thursday, November 9, 2017, at Noon Eastern Time. See the blog for more details. If you want to exercise this option, please be sure to do so by the deadline!


Kit and Kickoff Registration

Kit and Kickoff Registration closes on Monday, November 20, 2017, at Noon Eastern Time. Make sure you have selected your preferences by then! Sign up through your team dashboard. If you don’t sign up to pick up your kit at a specific kickoff location, you will default to being a ‘My Site’ team, which means your kit will be shipped to you. This would mean both additional shipping expense for you and a delay in getting your kit. If you want to avoid those things, please sign up for a kickoff location before the deadline, if one is in driving range! Space is limited at Kickoffs, so pick early for the best options.

Remember, you have the additional option of having another team pick up your kit for you. Details on this Surrogate Kit Pick Up option may be found here.


Any questions on any kickoff-related information, please contact for help.
