2022 FIN Town Hall Meeting

We want to hear from you!  Join us for a cross-program, virtual Town Hall Meeting.  We will discuss events, resources, advocacy, board membership, committees and much more!

FIN Consent & Release

As you begin registering team members, please make them aware that they must fill out both the national consent & release at www.firstinspires.org, and the local consent & release form.

Good News!  The new & improved FIN consent and release form will allow coaches access to their team’s information so they can see who is ready to compete, and who still has forms to complete.  Our team is busy putting the finishing touches on this new system, and we will send the link in a separate email as soon as it is ready.
