The success of Jenison Robotics is made possible by enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers. Each season, every participating student is expected to have a family member volunteer at least 3 hours for 4-6th grade students (VEX IQ program) and 8 hours for 7-12th grade students (VEX EDR program). Extra fees will be levied to students that don't meet this requirement.
Every team needs a parent volunteer "coach". If we don't have enough volunteers to help coach, we will have to limit the number of students we can enroll.
However, this is by far the most fun and rewarding role! The coach's job is to just encourage the students, and keep an eye on them.
We can't stress one thing enough:
Every league and tournament competition requires volunteers to make it run smoothly. We need the parents to step up and help in the following roles at these events.
