How does your school categorized your FIRST team?

This is a question for the school associated teams. How does the school categorize your team? For example, our school categorizes our team as an extracurricular club as it relates to school district policy.

I am interested in learning what other teams are being categorized as by their school districts. Is your team a club, a sports team, or something else I haven't thought of? If you are something else I may be interested in learning more about your school policies on that categorization.

Thanks!

Mine is a extracurricular club. It puts a lot of pressure on our teacher advisors (only 2) because at least one always has to be there but they also do a host of other clubs.

Re: How does your school categorized your FIRST team?

Extracurricular activity. However, there's a few differences from other extracurricular activities.

We have a non-faculty head coach, one non-faculty assistant coach, and one faculty assistant coach. I believe we pay the two non-faculty coaches while the faculty coach is paid by the activities department. We also successfully lobbied for Varsity lettering which started last school year (2017-18, so letters were awarded at the end of the 2018 FRC season).

Re: How does your school categorized your FIRST team?

We are described officially as a club by the district; however, that isn't quite the whole story. We very much consider ourselves a team, our student body knows us as a team (were actually one of the most successful groups at our school and bigger than most sports and all clubs.) Furthermore, through all the teams in our districts petitioning the school board, our lead mentor/teacher is now being paid nearly as much a football coaches based on hours. Its half hourly pay for up to 350 hours. That was a huge win for the team as we no longer had to spend money for stipend.

Hope this helps!

It has a special policy that gives it more rights and protection than an extra-curricular, because it is an extension of regular class instruction.
For instance, if a drastic budget cut was forced, all extra-curriculars (including sports) would immediately disappear, but not co-curriculars.

Re: How does your school categorized your FIRST team?

Our team is listed as an extracurricular activity, but we are treated differently from all other activities, clubs, and teams.

Re: How does your school categorized your FIRST team?

We are a full-on sport at my school. It's more a function of the fact that our school is so small (private NorCal school), so it wasn't too difficult to get our administration on board.

We currently only have two mentors, who are both faculty (chem teacher and IT). We're in the process of getting more mentors, who will need to be fully ID'd/fingerprinted through the school before they can stand in to chaperone anything by themselves.

Re: How does your school categorized your FIRST team?

Officially an extracurricular club, supported by the district's Career and Technology Education office. I receive a stipend from them, and they pay for our local regional entry fee. At the school level, we are treated like a sport, meaning: athletic eligibility requirements apply for participation in competitions; we get the same treatment at pep rallies as sports teams; and, kids can receive a varsity letter.
