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.
