COVID-19 Updates – 2021-2022 Season

We are continuing to develop plans on how to best support FIRST events across all programs for the 2021 – 2022 Season. This includes the ability to implement modifications such as the use of masks, health screening, event scaling, social distancing, event formatting, and other precautions as determined by local conditions and regulations.

We will continue to offer program and event modifications that include traditional (in-person), remote, or hybrid format options. The event format will be based on local conditions and regulations. 

For the latest information about FIRST events in your region in California, contact your local Program Delivery Partner.

Providing opportunities for hands-on learning and recognizing our teams’ incredible accomplishments are key elements to the lasting impact of FIRST. Unfortunately, the pandemic continues to disrupt many aspects of our lives, including the ability in some cases to gather in-person. So while we’re looking forward to seeing in-person competition and celebration, we are ready to adjust plans if needed. We remain committed to deliver our programs to as many students as possible, as safely as possible.

We thank you for your continued support for our mission as we navigate the season together!
