Make sure you receive emails about event registration! Sign into your account at www.firstinspires.org and make sure all of your coaches have been added to the team. NYC FIRST emails will only go to the coaches and administrator listed on your account.
Event Registration Process
Event registration is only open to teams who have paid their team registration and received their equipment. The coaches and administrator on each team account will receive emails leading up to the event registration date. Event registration is done through Google Forms and links and registration times will be distributed to each administrator and coach.
Coaches and organizations with 4 or more teams will receive communications about pre-registering their teams. Pre-registration allows you to assign your teams to qualifiers before registration opens for the rest of the community. For organizations with more than 4 teams, we will ask you to split your teams up into multiple qualifiers in order to make sure there are enough slots for everyone.
Open Registration happens on a first-come, first-serve basis. Information about dates and locations will be published beforehand and we recommend that you keep a first, second, and third choice in mind. If your preferred event is full and you would like to be placed on a waitlist, please email Lisa at email@example.com.
Event Payment Policy
NEW for the 2021-22 season
After you submit your Google Form, you will receive an invoice from NYC FIRST for the Event Registration Fee. This is a local fee to help cover the cost of running each event.
Event Registration Fees must be paid within 4 weeks of receiving your invoice. Any teams with unpaid invoices after 4 weeks will forfeit their slot at the event and teams on the waitlist will be notified of open slots.
Teams will be charged for each event they attend, including qualifiers, semifinals, and championships.
