Students will be grouped by desired events

Build vs. Test Events

Is there an event that you may want to coach?

Please consider it even if you are not 100% comfortable. We are not looking for an expert, just someone willing to give their time to the students.

Without volunteer coaches the team will not do as well since teachers can not possibly coach all the events.
