Start a Team

Congratulations on your decision to start a WRO robotics team! Whether you are a teacher, parent, coach, or an after-school club leader, you’ll find lots of support as you move through this process.

If you are a student wanting to participate in our tournament, all you need is a coach who’s at least 18 years of age. That person can be your parent or teacher.

As a coach, normally you need 2-3 students to start a team, but for the 2020 WRO-USA National Invitational Tournament, you also have the option to start a team with just 1 student.

If you have questions about how to start a WRO team, please contact Alex Crooks at ac@wro-foundation.org
