New Parents

Welcome to Swerve Robotics. You and your student have just joined a family of sorts. We support and encourage discovery and growth through exploration, experimentation, and stretching to meet goals – both with students and parents. We consider your family a partner in our adventures as we seek to prepare the next generation of World Leaders.

You must have many questions. Don’t worry, we have answers. You are welcome to ask as many questions as you like. Our Executive Director is available to you, as are your student’s coaches and mentors.

  1. The most important item in the beginning of the season is to complete the Swerve and FIRST registration, and pay your dues prior to kickoff on September 9, 2017.
  2. Next you should review each of the FIRST overview pages for your specific program. A description of each and the links are below. This will provide you great information on the WHAT, WHO, WHEN, HOW, WHY, and WHERE for the FIRST season.
  3. Review each of the Parent Resource pages in this website in both the FIRST and Swerve headings.

Once you have completed all of the above you are ready to thoroughly enjoy the season ahead with all the information you need.
