Document Library

One of the key components of FIRST is the collaboration between teams to share knowledge. Unlike traditional sports, in which one only cares about his or her own team, FIRST stresses gracious professionalism among teams. In order to help other FIRST teams, our students and mentors have written several articles and white papers to assist other teams. In addition to the white papers that were written by our team, we have included links to a few "must-read" white papers that encompass everything from people's experiences in FIRST to digital copies of newspaper articles that have featured our team. Finally, we have also included many older archived FIRST documents here as well.

Note: FIRST has granted our team permission to post official FIRST media here as digital archived materials in our Document Library pages. All official FIRST documents, brochures, and materials are copyright by FIRST. All rights reserved.

In what has been called the quintessential or perfect FIRST game by many in the FIRST community, FIRST Frenzy was an amazing game that was divided up into many tasks, including scoring small balls, multiplying the score of these with 2x multiplier balls, and hanging robots off the bar for bonus points.

FIRST Game Sounds

To anyone who's visited a FIRST competition of any kind, these sounds effects - used every year - are used during the matches to signify the beginning of the match, the end of autonomous, the end of the match, if an error occurred, and when the five point balls are released.
