  • Ages and numbers on a team

    Hello all! This is my first season mentoring a team and i have a question about how firm the number of kids and their ages are. We have 7 kids that want to be on the team (maybe 8), and one of them is 10yo. Is it okay to have 7 on a team, or should I look to recruit more and have two teams?

    No, you cannot have 7 on a team. There is a limits of 6 kids on an FLL Jr. team.
    See your students grow and shine through FIRST® LEGO® League. Starting with Discover, children ages 4-6 are introduced to the fundamentals of STEM while working together to solve fun challenges and building models using LEGO® bricks. As participants progress into Explore (ages 6-10), children will take their background knowledge of STEM and put it into practice as they work in teams to design and build robots using LEGO Education SPIKETM Essential.

    I suggest that you start with just one team. If there are two other parents that want to coach, then create the 2nd team and let the other parents guide that team.
    Running two teams takes a lot of time and the team may not get the benefit of your full attention.
    Good Luck.
