All FRC Teams must submit a Team Roster to be considered registered and eligible to receive the KOP. This team roster must list all students and mentors. It also must state whether the students and mentors have submitted the FIRST 2013 Consent and Release Form online or are submitting paper consent forms. If the consent forms are submitted online, the names will appear on the team roster. However, if students and mentors are submitting paper forms, team leaders must write in the names of those students and mentors onto the printed team roster. Please staple all paper forms to the Team Roster.
Team leaders: Ahead of Kickoff, please log into TIMS and print out your team’s roster. Check that all of your mentors and students are listed and write in the names of all students and mentors that did not file a consent form online. Write your Team Number on the roster! Attach paper consent forms to the printed roster for those mentors and students that did not file their consent form online.
If you need paper copies of the FIRST Consent & Release form, click here.
After turning in all Consent Forms and the Team Roster, the designated team leader will be given a Kit of Parts (KOP) receipt. Do not fill out the KOP receipt until after you have received all of the KOP boxes. This receipt must be reviewed and turned in before you leave the Kickoff site with your KOP. The Kit of Parts will be given out only after the broadcast concludes.
Kit of Parts
If you are properly signed up for the Kickoff, your Kit of Parts will be shipped to this location for you to pick up after the kickoff broadcast is complete. No Kit of Parts will be distributed before the end of the broadcast.
If your team is signed up but not able to attend Kickoff, please arrange for a surrogate team to handle your Kit of Parts pickup. You must contact FIRST Headquarters before (December 30th). We cannot and will not release any Kit of Parts without proper authorization from FIRST.
The Kit of Parts includes several heavy containers, totes and other materials. We highly recommend a hand truck or cart to stack the totes and other materials.
