This page contains important forms and information that you need to register for the 2021 Junior Robotics League Competition. There is a lot of very important information on this page. Please read all of it before registering.


Participants can form their own teams of 2 to 6 students and register as a team, or can register as an individual and be placed on a team with other individual registrants. Remember, before registering as an individual, check with classmates, friends, and neighbors to see if you can form a team instead.

Registration Types

There are three registration types for the 2021 season:

  • New teams that need a new VEX Cortex robot starter kit.
  • Teams that have participated in JRL previously and already have a VEX Cortex robot kit can use their kit from the previous year.
  • Individual registrations allow students to sign  up as individuals and be placed with 3 or 4 other individuals to form a team. We do our best to group students on teams of similar grade levels or similar schools where possible. Each team formed will receive 1 Vex Cortex robot kit.  Once teams are formed, these parents will work together to determine who will serve as the coach for the team.

(NOTE: While the school district is currently allowing us to accept individual registration this year, it is highly recommended that people form teams with people that they know. This is due to the ongoing COVID pandemic and because your student will be placed on a team with other individuals that you do not know. You only need a couple of friends to form a team and you do not have to have any previous experience. We will help you through the process.

How to Register

    1. Fill out the online form.

    2. Mail in your check with a copy of the completed online registration, pay online via Paypal or bring your payment to the registration event at the Team Driven Shop on September 11th.


Registering online helps guarantee you won't get left out of important communications and helps us better track your registration, but your payment must be received before the deadline to finalize your registration.

    Refund Policy for 2021 JRL Season

    If the competition event is fully cancelled at any time due to school district, city or county mandates related to COVID, we will issue refunds where possible. The amount of any refund will be based on the type of registration as outlined below. We are not able to issue refunds to teams if the school district, city or county require us to utilize our back up event plans. We are not able to issue refunds for teams or individual participants that request to withdraw their registration for any reason after September 13th. Refunds will only apply if the event is fully cancelled and not able to be rescheduled for a later date.

    Returning teams that do not receive a new robot kit
    · A refund of the registration cost minus $20 to cover payment processing fees will be returned to the main contact for a given team.

    New teams, individual registrations or teams that receive a new robot kit
    · A partial refund will be issued based on the amount of the registration fee minus the cost of the robot kit ($549). The team will be able to use the robot kit in future JRL seasons.

Payment Information

  • Checks should be made out to the "LSHS Team Driven Booster Club" and mailed to the address on the registration form or in your confirmation email.
  • You do have the option to pay the registration fees via Paypal or credit/debit card. Once your registration is received noting you want to use this option, we will send you an email invoice to allow you to pay online.  Invoices will be be sent to teams beginning around September 1st. It can take 2-3 days for the invoice to be generated and received as this is a manual process. 

    All proceeds from the Junior Robotics League program are used to support the Lee's Summit High School Robotics Program, Team Driven.  All revenue generated supports our year round activities.  Each year, we not only compete in the annual FIRST Robotics Competition Season, we put on summer camps, this junior robotics league and participate in a number of other community outreach programs to help spread the message about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) related activities.
