Hello, Teams! This is a super-short blog today just to let you know that initial registration fees have been published for the 2022 season on the Cost and Registration page.
There’s probably good news and bad news here. The bad news is fees are going back up to what they have been in ordinary years, $6,000 for Rookies and $5,000 for Veterans. The good news is we are planning for an ordinary year! This means regular in-person events, in-person FIRST Championship, and a Kit of Parts that is much more like what you saw in 2020 than what you saw in 2021. While we can’t absolutely guarantee these things right now, given the uncertainties associated with COVID, it certainly is what we are planning for!
You will see some TBDs on the registration fee list for things like additional plays and FIRST Championship. Those items are still being finalized, but we wanted to let you know about initial registration fees as soon as possible so you can start making plans for what is going to be a spectacular 2022!
$4,000 if you haven’t used your 2020 voucher yet
While this was what I’d assumed and hoped for, it’s so nice to see it in writing.
Here’s to hoping things continue in a direction where they can make good on it!
