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 8th 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

Under strict rules and limited time and resources, teams of high school students are challenged to build industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game in alliance with other teams, while also fundraising to meet their goals, designing a team “brand,” and advancing respect and appreciation for STEM within the local community. In Michigan there are over 500 teams yearly building and competing their robot to make it to the Worlds Competition in Detroit.

First also provided over 80 million in scholarships in 2020 to students who took part in the program.

POWER THE FUTURE

That ONE Team is excited to start their 8th season playing FIRST Robotics Competition, INFINITE RECHARGE! Starting in January, we will be re-deploying our trusty droid to help defend FIRST City from the approaching asteroids caused by a distant space skirmish. Collaborating with other teams, we will race to collect and score Power Cells in order to energize our Shield Generator. Interested in helping protect our city? Visit firstinspires.org to learn more!!

This upcoming season is going to be an update from last season after it got cut short due to the pandemic. We look forward to updating and adding even more to our robot to make a charge at another Worlds showing come 2021!

In INFINITE RECHARGE, two alliances work to protect FIRST City from approaching asteroids caused by a distant space skirmish. Each Alliance, along with their trusty droids, race to collect and score Power Cells in order to energize their Shield Generator for maximum protection. To activate stages of the Shield Generator, droids manipulate their Control Panels after scoring a specific number of Power Cells. Near the end of the match, droids race to their Rendezvous Point to get their Shield Generator operational in order to protect the city!
