There is a great resource for first-time FIRST LEGO League coaches called FIRST Steps. It walks a new coach through a season, with suggestions for how to approach different things. It can also be helpful for coaches who have coached previously, though. You can request access to it here:
This is a great resource for anyone thinking about starting a team. Good luck!

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] Suggested timelines?
I'm new to coaching this year and I'm trying to get a feel for how to plan our season. Are there guidelines or suggested timelines for how to prepare for the competition? I'd like to set some targets for where we need to be by when to make sure that we aren't cramming too much in the last week. Thanks for any advice.
