Student/parent completes the FIRST consent form in the Youth Registration System for the FTC program (your youth's Lead Coach/Mentor will send you an email invitation with the registration link), or in STIMS (https://www.firstinspires.org/resource-library/youth-team-member-consent-and-release-form) for the FRC program. Only the students who filled out the electronic consent form will be on the coach's electronic roster. The coach needs to print out that roster and turn it in to Team Check-in at the FTC qualifier / FRC event. Students not on the electronic roster will need a hard copy of the consent form. The coach will write that student’s name on the printable roster. At team check in, the printed electronic roster and any hard copies of the consent form will need to be stapled together.
All students, coaches, and mentors are required to fill out the FIRST Chesapeake Consent and Release form online before the team's first FTC qualifier / FRC event. Coaches / mentors / students / volunteers need to fill out the form before their first event. Coaches are encouraged to bring a list of their students who have done the online consent form.
If a person participates in both the FTC and FRC programs, they will need to fill out the FIRST Chesapeake Consent and Release form online before participating in either program.
Volunteer/parent or guardian of volunteer will first complete the FIRST consent form in VIMS as part of the volunteer registration process.
Volunteer/parent or guardian of volunteer is required to fill out the FIRST Chesapeake Consent and Release form online before you volunteer at your first FTC qualifier / FRC event. Volunteers need to fill out the form before their first event. On the form where it says "team number, " just type in NA.
