"Team Clueless and Furious Falcon have taught Summer camps at All Star Academy last year successfully which some of your teams have helped out. They are expanding the program this year including Team Inspiration. I can vow how successful their programs are. Some of the Inspiration team members had taken the class last year, and it really helped Inspiration team to perform this season.
Coach Olivia has multiple FLL Southern California championship teams in her coaching credit. Under her and Shilin's coaching team, they went to the FIRST World Championship twice by being the champions at Legoland and is also heading over to European championship this year. You already know that they are very competitive FTC teams also.
Inspiration team had successfully guided six Meadowbrook Middle School FLL teams and their coaches. The six Meadowbrook FLL teams won four first places and two championship titles in their respective qualified tournaments during the 2016-2017 seasons. Two also placed in Southern California championships. We are pretty happy about our first FTC experience also and will share our journey.
Please help to spread words of this Summer FIRST training program. It is also part of our FTC/FLL teams fundraising activities and spreading the news of FIRST.
Thank you for the consideration."
-- Alex Szeto, Coach Team Inspiration
