Best Practices After Kickoff

**Written by FIRST Staff, 2015 Dec 14

We’re using today’s blog to let you know that GameSense’s next “Behind the Lines” episode is this Wednesday, 9:00pm EST, 12/16/2015.

Their guest is Ken Stafford from FRC190, an original and sustaining team. The show will focus on a great way to maximize your team’s effectiveness in the first few days after Kickoff. Ken will cover game and strategic analysis, brainstorming, and the creative process.
