Our team was a rookie team last year. They spent a lot of time on their research project, and as competition time neared in November, we felt so unprepared for the robot competition, that we almost decided to not compete in that part, if possible.

But during the last week or so, the team worked very hard at programming and practicing with their robot, meeting several times a week, and they were able to compete and successfully complete a few missions. That felt like a real win to them!

They did great with the research project, and received a special judges’ award. It was a great rookie experience!

Do your best and have fun!

I think a number of the experienced coaches will agree that you often never feel like you're ready but the kids are!  The kids will learn a ton in the process leading up to the event as well as at the event and have a lot of fun.  And we have a LOT of rookie teams each year so you won't be alone!
