- Head to the FIRST Dashboard at https://my.firstinspires.org/Dashboard/
- Create an account, or login to an existing account. The email address is important, you will want to use the same email address in the national system, and our local system MyCVR.
- Teams should reuse any existing team numbers if possible. In MyCVR, coaches and contacts will be able to see all team results and rubrics for the history of teams.
- Follow the steps under an existing team to renew it for the existing season, and use the Team Contacts page to adjust coaches as needed.
- To create a new team, click the Create New Team button (or click the "I want to..." button on mobile). From there, select FIRST LEGO League Jr, enter your team information and location.
- Be sure to pick Central California for the region, otherwise you will not show up in our system!
- All teams must pay the national registration fee before they can order any additional products. The national registration fee includes a set of items as indicated above. Click the Pay For Team(s) button and follow the steps on screen. FIRST supports a variety of payment options and you can bulk pay for multiple teams at once.
- Once your team has met all FIRST payment obligations, you can click the "Payment and Product" link to be taken to the LEGO Education storefront to purchase WeDo kit or any other LEGO accessories. Separate payments may be required when purchasing from LEGO.
- Finally, MyCVR monitors the national registration database and will send out invites to the main contacts once it sees that your team has paid the national registration fee.
Types of Registrations
FIRST has a couple of registration opens and there are some important considerations for each type:
- Team Registration: this is the traditional team registration type. Every registration gets a team access to CVR's qualifiers and other events. A school can have multiple team registrations.
- Class / School Packs: this option allows for classrooms and schools to purchase supplies in bulk. Regardless of the pack size, the packs do not grant participation in the official CVR event structure. Learn more here.
Season Pass Registration has been retired as of the 2019 season. The Class and School Packs have replaced it.
