FIRST Robotics Competition Calendar

It’s said to be the best kept secret in FRC.* The FIRST Robotics Competition Season Calendar has all the key dates you need to know for the season. You can look at the dates in a list or on a calendar. You can also filter by the types of dates you are looking for. We also just put a button on each event that will let you add the event to your personal calendar. Up your calendar game now!

Season Resources

Did you miss the FIRST Game Designers show Saturday on FIRSTtv?? (Rats!). Hey, we recorded it and you can check it out here (Yay!) (Twitch link swapped for YouTube link, Jan. 19, 2021). You will also find other resources put together by our Suppliers and volunteers to help teams this season on the FRC YouTube Channel. Be sure to check them out!

Also, on January 30th at Noon Eastern time, we’re hosting a webinar about FRC Judging. Sign up to participate! More details here on one of those calendar entries I can’t shut up about already.


*By me. So, someone did say it. True fact.
