Ignition Team


With our "Ignition Team" we aim to start or restart more FRC teams in our area. With the benefits are overwhelming, the work required is likewise to have team. We hope to help this burden by providing mentoring in every area. We have developed a library of manual on technical skills to guide rookies through the build process. Having achieved financial stability ourselves, we want to spread our knowledge and contacts to those needing it, insuring that money is not a barrier to any team. Our how-to guide will impart what is required to run and team and the skills necessary. In addition to providing this handbook on our website and at events like our Jumpstart build, we are willing to personal visit teams to give more hands-on advice. The goal of our "Ignition Team" is to create a community of strong and stable FRC teams.
