TeamUp App: Does your team need an extra student? Do you know a student who wants to join a team? We have a new tool to help individuals find each other to form a team! It is called TeamUP and it is being launched for the first time this month. If your robotics team would like to mentor another team this season, please consider adding your team to TeamUp. You will be able to find teams in search of mentoring this season.

Each team needs to complete a signed Consent Release form for each student, coach and volunteer attending. The National consent is the only consent needed this season. NO EXCEPTIONS – Participation is contingent on having a completed consent form before the opening ceremonies for each individual.
FIRST Inspires National program (parents/guardians register themselves and then sign digital consent for their child)
Coaches are responsible for ensuring all consents are complete for the students on their team.
Do we still have to collect 2 consents for each participant, including coaches?
⚠️ No, this season only the National consent is required for each participant.
