Joining Firestorm

Firestorm is a community team. We usually meet at least 2x a week. Membership dues, meeting schedules and other requirements are reviewed at the beginning of each season.

As a mentor-guided, student-led team, we

encourage parents to volunteer and participate in the success of the team.

Annual Expenses

These are some of the team’s expenses for each season. They are prorated based on the number of students on the team. Sponsorships and fundraisers help offset these costs to the families and that’s why it’s important for parents to be involved in the team’s activities.

  • $3,600 – Makerspace Fees
  • $5,000 – FIRST District Competition Fee
  • $5,000 – Competition Robot Parts
  • $4,000 – FIRST Worlds Competition Fee

Board and Lodging: Expect to stay 2 nights in a hotel for each of 2 district competitions. Depending on how the team does, add 3 nights for the state championship and 4 nights for the world championship.
