Welcome to the new FIRST Illinois Website!
Kickoff is the first event of the FTC season, occurring in September each year. It offers the opportunity to see the game reveal, network with other FTC teams and strategize about the new season. There is an international broadcast of the game reveal, as well as local events that can be attended for local networking as well as the opportunity to see a field and field elements up close. A local Kickoff event can also feature roundtable discussions and workshops for building skills. Check this page for information about the Illinois Kickoff events around August of each year.
