We are looking for new coaches!

Anyone who coaches will have a spot for their student on their team.  The spots that we can offer will depend on the number of coaches we have.  No experience is necessary to coach an FLL team.  We have experienced coaches to support you as well as an incredibly supportive FLL community.  Coaches have many resources available.   Come be a part of this rewarding experience!
