From FIRST Inspires:

This year, Off-Season Events for all programs begin July 1, including FIRST Robotics Competition. To help the FIRST community with planning, and especially so with respect to public health, we are developing cross-program guidance and resources for Off-Season Events, defined as a gathering organized by a Host Organization that utilizes FIRST program content for which there is a participation fee or sponsorship funding. The Host Organization will need to complete an event notice for all Off-Season Events and an updated agreement if borrowing FIRST Robotics Competition equipment from FIRST HQ.

For more information on Off-Season Events, read our FAQ. More guidance and details to assist in the planning of Off-Season Events will be available on or before May 28 in the FIRST Resource Library.
