As a parent or guardian, there are several ways you can get your child involved in a FIRST® LEGO® League Explore program near you. Teams are structured in a variety of ways; like clubs or after-school programs that meet year-round, while others are formed by parents, community organizers, or youth groups.

There are a number of ways to find a team or locate others in your area ready to start a team. Find out more HERE. Many times the easiest way to find a team is to start a team *coming soon*! For other frequently asked questions from parents, check out out Parent FAQ page.

Once your child has found a team, you will need to receive an email from your team’s coach. From there, you can register your child through the FIRST® Team Dashboard! Every year your child decides to participate, you will need to complete the short registration process.

*For privacy reasons, we are not able to share team contact information. VA+DC FIRST® LEGO® League does not match individual children with pre-existing teams.
