Register students for FRC Team 4931

It’s that time of year again. We’re less than 4 weeks from the kickoff of the 2015 FRC season!

Each student team member needs to register with Edwardsville Robotics Club and with FIRST.  Only those students that are registered with both will be allowed to attend the kickoff event on January 3.

The whole process can be a bit confusing, so below you’ll find the steps that describe the whole process. Since the process is a bit different for returning students versus new student members, we’ve covered each separately.

Returning Students

If you were a member of the team for the 2014 season, then the steps are fairly straightforward:

Parents of returning students

Step 1: Register your student at the Edwardsville Robotics Club website.
Step 2: Log into the STIMS system with the same email address and password you used last year.
Step 3: Verify/correct your information via the “Edit/View” button near the top of the page.
Step 4: Complete the youth profile for your student. Make sure you check the “2015-2016 TBD (FRC)” in the red box at the bottom of the page.
Step 5: Complete the school information for your student(s).
Step 6: Sign the consent form
Step 7: Click on the “Apply to FRC Team” and enter the team number “4931”
Step 8: You are done when the “User Profile”, “School”, and “Consent Form Status” says “Complete” for each student.
