About FIRST Robotics Competition

Since 2001, Cavalier Robotics has participated in the FIRST Robotics Competition as FRC Team 619. Every year, the FRC build season begins at “kick-off” in early January and runs for six weeks. During this intense period, we have to design and construct a roughly 130-lb robot to complete in the season’s challenge. After build season, we attend regional competitions throughout the Spring. In our over 20-year history, we have gone to competitions in Richmond, Atlanta, Washington D.C., Myrtle Beach and even the FRC Worlds Championship in Detroit.

FIRST Robotics is a “Global robotics community preparing young people for the future.” Robotics competition teams design, program ad build a robot starting with a standard kit of parts and common set of rules to play in a themed head-to-head challenge. Teams also build a brand develop community partnerships for support, and work to promote STEM in their local community.
