How to Start a JrFLL Team

 
WHAT MAKES A TEAM?

FLL Jr. captures the interest of our youngest learners. Start your team today!

  • 2 adult coaches
  • 2-6 participants between the ages of 6-9 (approximately Kindergarten – 3rd grade)
  • Teams may be of mixed age and gender
  • Teams DO NOT need to be formed by a school or organization. It can be just a group of friends!
REGISTERING A TEAM 

 Registration is a two step process: National Registration AND MN Registration 

  • National Registration with FIRST® opens yearly in August.
  • MN Registration with High Tech Kids opens yearly mid October. Teams must be registered nationally before they can register locally.
