Registration is a two step process:
National Registration: All FIRST teams must be nationally registered before they can apply to participate in local tournaments. You can register here to start a new team. Oregon is part of the Pacific Northwest District with Washington and Alaska. All teams compete in two district tournaments as part of their registration fee. If your team qualifies for the PNW district championship there is not an additional fee for participation. FIRST Washington has the fiduciary responsibility for the district. This means you will pay your registration fees to them, not FIRST headquarters.
Once you have registered nationally you can apply for the FIRST Washington grant to help pay down registration fees. The grant application form for 2018-19 season is now open. All grants come from national or Oregon sponsors.
