FIRST® Tech Challenge ULTIMATE GOAL
FIRST Tech Challenge Oregon Tournament Fee Information/ Online sign up for events
- This year, when you pay your Oregon team registration fee you will be paying for your team’s participation in the 2020-2021 season*. The fee has been reduced from what your team paid last year for participation in league or qualifying events. What does this fee include? It allows one team to participate in any workshops, training and league meets; including all league and qualifying meets regardless of if events are held remotely, hybrid or in-person format. We have always offered our workshops and training at no extra cost to teams but it does cost us money to create and host them.The refund policy has changed as well. We will no longer be able to refund your season participation fee once it has been paid.
