Our community recently had an FTC boom, and after a bunch of teams started popping out we decided to start an FRC team. In Norcal we were super grateful to have a bunch of super supportive local teams, that helped us get started. 5419, 7419, 5026 ,649, and 841 all have us tours of their shop and helped us get the materials we needed in the offseason, so we could start messing around with a kit chassis. We also attended Spartan series in person in October 2019, which was a huge help! We spent a lot of time getting our team up to speed on CAD, specifically Solidworks, and using it to make parts on our CNC, was a lot of fun. Thank you so much, and hopefully this answers your question.
