Pricing and Payment

Registration is open for the 2020-2021 season. Season team registration for North American teams is $275. International team registration varies by location. All costs for individual team members are assumed by the team as a group.
 

For the best 2020-2021 season participation experience, we recommend teams register by April 30, 2021. More information about the 2021-2022 season will be available soon.


We’re adding new opportunities for teams to get in the game this season and have a quality, flexible program experience, including teams who are in a fully remote environment. Your season team registration includes:

  • Official FIRST Tech Challenge team number
  • Ability to register and compete in official remote or in-person FIRST Tech Challenge events (varies by region)
  • Access to the FIRST storefront for discounted control system components and robot kit of parts
  • Eligibility to participate in the FIRST Innovation Challenge presented by Qualcomm
    • Teams will identify a real-world problem or opportunity related to our season theme and design a solution, build a business model, and deliver a remote pitch to compete for advancement
  • Access to resources for team management and career readiness
  • Ability to compete for team awards and FIRST Tech Challenge Dean’s List Award
  • Team member access to FIRST Scholarship program (eligibility requirements)

Team Registration fee does not include shipping and handling, robot control system hardware, robot built kits, registration to FIRST Tech Challenge events, nor guarantees that events are available in your area. FIRST Program Delivery Partners run FIRST Tech Challenge events which may include physical, remote, or a combination of physical and remote elements. Partners may charge an additional fee to participate in their events, and those fees are set and collected by the Partner.

Registered teams also receive complimentary access to FIRST fundraising tools and resources to help teams create their own opportunities. Needs-based grants and sponsorships for teams may also be available provided locally, regionally, and nationally by many corporations.

Kit of Parts Options

Teams can order their robot supplies in the FIRST Tech Challenge Storefront. This will combine the registration payment and kit of parts fees together, requiring only one bill and automatically deducting any awarded grants from the final total. If you are waiting for a Rookie Grant, please do not proceed through the payment section.

In the Storefront, teams will have several options for purchase, including either a REV or TETRIX Competition set. The options are outlined in the Kit of Parts Options document below. You can also find more information about the two kits in our REV and TETRIX Bill of Materials. Teams will also be able to select an Electronics Modules and Sensors Set and a Control Communications Set.
