Can I join the team?
To join the team there is a basic requirement that you are within driving distance of the shop. Any student grades 8th – 12th in the Preble County area are welcome to attend any of our meetings and see what we’re about!
How often does the team meet?
In the off-season (May – December), we meet once a month, typically the first Saturday of the month. If it happens to fall on a holiday, we will meet the next Saturday.
Once we’re in season (January – April), you can find mentors and students at the shop nearly all hours of the day.
What is the time commitment needed for a regular team member?
“It’s not the hours you put in your work that counts, it’s the work you put in the hours.” – Sam Ewing
The more time you put in to it, the more knowledge and experience you will get out of it. This is true for almost anything. As a team member, you only need to put as much time as you feel you’re needed. We have had students rarely show up for build, and still come to competition. We have also had students practically live in the build shop, and had mentors sleep over night during crunch time. It’s all about what you want to get out of your time on the team.
