FLL Team Resources

FIRST and many other organizations, including other teams, provide a variety of resources and training for both veteran and rookie FIRST teams. This page contains links to manuals, documents and other resources that will increase your knowledge of FIRST and its various components.

Be sure to join the NC FLL Coach Listserve.  This is a great way to ask questions of veteran coaches, to share resources and ideas, and to practice teamwork at the coach level.
