Many parents are looking for an existing team for their child. We cannot match children to existing teams due to FIRST’s privacy policy. We encourage parents looking for a team to contact your local schools, libraries, or youth organizations which may have a team in place, or interest in starting one.

Here are some questions parents often have:
What is the age range for FLL Challenge?
FLL Challenge is for ages 9-14.  In the U.S. and Canada, FIRST LEGO League Challenge participants must not be younger than 9 years old or older than 14 as of January 1 of the year the Challenge is released. For more details, please refer to the Participation Rules.
Where can I find a team for my child?
Please note WI FLL does not match children to existing teams due to FIRST’s privacy policy. We encourage parents looking for a team to contact their local schools, libraries, or youth organizations which may have a team in place, or interest in starting one.
What organizations have teams?
Many schools have teams, also Scouts, 4-H, Boys and Girls Clubs, and homeschool groups. Or start your own team!
What is the cost to have my child on a team?
Each team has different fees to join a team. Please ask the coach.
What accommodations are made for my special needs child?
You should work with the team coach to manage any accommodations during meetings. If your child needs accommodations at a tournament, the coach should let the tournament director know in advance what is needed.
How do I register my child?
Registration instructions are detailed on the FIRST website.
May I stay at team meetings and watch?
Each team has different policies on this. Please contact the coach.
How might I help the team/coach?
Each team has different needs for additional help. Please ask the coach. Some common ways parents can help are: Snack coordinator, transportation to field trips, supervising online research during meetings, monitoring students with the robot and computer, treasurer, listening and giving feedback for team presentation preparation, and parent mentor.
