About

The Minnesota FIRST Regional Competitions are being held at Wiliiams and Mariucci Arenas on the U of MN campus from April 6 to April 8, 2017. There will be 123 high school teams (about 3000 students) competing in a round robin format for 8 matches followed by a playoff. Thursday is for practice rounds and robot safety inspections. Competition starts Friday morning and runs to noon on Saturday. The playoffs and awards take place from 1:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday. There are about 250 volunteers required to run the event. Positions vary from technical to adminstrative to crowd control to officiating. Some of the positions require you to be present all three days, but many are on a day-by-day basis. Please see the volunteer page on the MN Regional website (http://www.mnfirst.org/content/volunteers). If you are interested, follow the link to the FIRST volunteer registration system at ( https://my.usfirst.org/FIRSTPortal/Login/VIMS_Login.aspx) and sign up for the Minnesota North Star or 10,000 Lakes Regionals.
