FIRST ROBOTICS COMPETITION TEAM – GRADES 9-12

ALL ABOUT OUR TEAM

THAT ONE TEAM is a community-based high school robotics team located in Belmont, MI.

That ONE Team is now in our 9th year of FRC. We started as LEGO® in Paradise in 2006 as a FIRST® LEGO® League team, and were successful right from the beginning – we won tournaments and had an impact in our community by starting other FLL teams. Those teams led to the creation of Paradise Teams, the organization that sponsors That ONE Team. We retired from FLL in 2013 after attending the World Festival with two different teams in the two preceding years. However, in 2013 while attending the FIRST® Championship as spectators, we decided that we needed to start an FRC team. Since we had some experienced FIRST® members and there were no other FRC teams in our area, it was a good fit.

And thus, Team 4967 was born, created to produce Our Next Engineers.

ABOUT FIRST and the ROBOTICS COMPETITION PROGRAM

The Ultimate Sport for the Mind

We call FIRST Robotics Competition the ultimate Sport for the Mind. High-school student participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.”

Under strict rules, limited time, and resources, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Each season ends with an exciting there are over 500 teams yearly building and competing their robot to make it to the Worlds Competition in Houston Texas.

First also provided over 80 million in scholarships in 2022 to students who took part in the program.
