Reminder:  All participants in VirginiaFIRST / FIRST Chesapeake competitions, including teams (students, coaches and/or mentors) and volunteers, must fill out the 2016-17 season VirginiaFIRST Consent and release form before attending/participating in events.

This includes both the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) and FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) programs.

We are happy to tell you that the form is now available online for your convenience. And as an added bonus, as each student submits the form, his/her coach will receive an automated confirmation of that student's form completion, so long as the student put the coach's email address on the form.

Coaches: please share this form link with your team members, and please make sure they all know your email address.

Paper forms will be available at events, but we strongly urge participants to complete the online form ahead of time or print and bring a paper copy.

*Please note- whether online or paper, minors' forms require the signature of a parent or guardian.*
