Volunteer

The West TN Events and the local FLL teams do NOT function without volunteers. If you have any questions about volunteering for FLL in the West TN Region please do not hesitate to email us at memphisfirstteams@gmail.com!


Due to COVID,
there will be no qualifiers this year!

There will be 2 events for FLL Challenge 2020-2021 Season

2021 Scrimmage (Happening Soon!)

We are looking for JUDGES who can judge at least for a whole day (see dates and times below). If you are not able to judge a whole day you may still register, and we will place you on a waiting list! All of our events this year are virtual. Judging has changed to “Consolidated Judging”. Teams are now judged in a single 45-minute session for Innovation Project, Robot Design, and Core Values. If you have volunteered in the past, please know that the rubrics have changed and that we recommend that you complete the training provided by FIRST.

  • Judge Training/Meeting Thursday March 4th 6:00PM-7:00PM
  • Friday March 5th from 1:00PM-5:00PM
  • Saturday March 6th from 9:00AM-5:00PM

Currently all Judging will be done using Zoom Meetings! We will contact you if we have to make a change to the platform we are utilizing!

If you would like to volunteer for the Scrimmage, you must register with FIRST, create a FIRST Inspires Dashboard Account, complete a YPP Background Check, Digitally sign your T&C Forms, and select the event(s) you wish to volunteer at.

When you select the Scrimmage, please select the day(s) you can Judge and also please select the role of “Judge”. Judges will judge all 3 areas together starting this year!

When your account has been verified and has passed the YPP screening, you will receive an email stating that you have been assigned the position of Judge. In this email you will also find links that we recommend you follow to complete the basic Judge training. The Head Judge will have Judge training/Meeting the night before Judging begins to go over any questions and to provide additional information.
