Thank you for your interest in joining FRC Team 2502 Talon Robotics! We are glad to have you as a member. You are welcome to join us for a visit at any time but to be eligible for travel, lettering and recognition you must be a valid team member. To become a valid team member, please complete the following 3 steps.
Step 1: Team Registration & Email Communication
Our team uses a contact management software called NeonCRM to keep track of our members and sponsors, communicate with team members and promote events. Each student MUST be registered in NeonCRM and we strongly encourage parents to be registered as well so they will get our mailings and team communications.
New Members & Friends
If you were already registered, go to the team website at www.team2502.com and click on “Member Login” under “Get Involved”. Once logged in use the drop down menu to find “View Talon Robotics Events”. You will see Team Registration 2017/18 and can click on “Register”.
Step 2: Community Education Registration
Our team is organized through Eden Prairie Community Education. They manage our accounting, background checks, lettering and other administrative tasks. All payments are made through community education. The yearly robotics fee is $200 and a $100 discount is provided to parents who become a mentor and volunteer a minimum of 3 hours a week for the 6 week build season.
Registration through Eden Prairie Community Education will be available in the fall. Register on the Eden Prairie Community Education website and then click on “Register Online” and then search for “Robotics”.
Step 3: FIRST Registration
The FIRST organization requires that all students be registered and have a valid consent and release form completed each year. This requires that all students under 18 years old get parent permission to participate on our team. Students will need to login to the Student Team Member Information System (STIMS) and apply to Team2502 and THEN parents need to approve their application.
Go to https://www.firstinspires.org/ and click on login to create your account. An adult will also need to create an account and then add their student’s information and finally apply to Team 2502.
Go to https://www.firstinspires.org/ and enter the email and password that you used last year to login to your account. If you are under 18 your parent will need to login and then go to you (the student) and “apply” to Team 2502.
