Refund Policy

FIRST is not responsible for any Event cancellations or the inability of a team to travel due to weather, threat of terrorism, Act of God and other events beyond the control of FIRST.

The $5,000.00 Veteran fee for Regional, FiM, MAR, NE or PNW Registration payment cannot be refunded after a team receives the Kit of Parts.

The $6,000 Rookie fee for Regional, FiM, MAR, NE or PNW Registration payment cannot be refunded after a  team receives the Kit of Parts.

A team may withdraw, without financial penalty, from additional Regional or District Registration, or the FIRST Championship Registration prior to the payment deadline of January 24, 2014 if a team has paid prior to this date.  Once this deadline has passed, FIRST cannot refund additional Regional or District Registration, or the FIRST Championship Registration payments unless a team withdraws before the event, and the event is full at the published capacity on the date of the scheduled event. Full capacity would not include the withdrawing team.

Teams do not have the option of transferring registration payments between events after the payment deadline of January 24, 2014. For example, if a team qualifies at a Regional for the FIRST Championship - they cannot drop a Regional and request that the Regional Registration payment be applied to the Fee for the FIRST Championship.
