Youth Team Member Registration
The season is in full swing! One key step to remember is to have the Parents/Legal Guardians apply for their students to join your team. We offer some simple instructions in the Youth Team Member Registration Guide that you can share along with your team members and with your community.
Speaking of team registration... your team cannot receive grant funding until you have completed the team registration process. You need to have two screened adult members, they must agree to our Youth Protection Policies, and they must have a completed consent and release form before the funds will be released to your account. Check your team's status in our FIRST registration system. If you have questions about your team's registration status please contact email@example.com or call 1-800-871-8326.
There is a lot of guidance available to help your team get off to a great start!
