Thank you for your interest in volunteering your time and energy at a FIRST® Lego League event. Without volunteers like yourself, we would be unable to provide a high quality robotics program to students. Please review the positions below and then volunteer for the Roanoke-Blacksburg FLL Tournament.

All event volunteers are required to fill out and sign the Consent and Release Form. Please bring your completed, signed form to the volunteer check in table. Completing this form ahead of time makes the check in process easier and quicker for everyone. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

If interested in any of these, please email isabellemarchand@netzero.com, (Tournament Director) for more information.


If you have been a FIRST judge, coach, or mentor before, please consider being a judge for either the Project, Robot Design, or Core Value.  We do provide judge training the night before the tournament, so no worries! We even feed you dinner!

Judges’ Assistant
The Judges' Assistant manages teams waiting to enter the Judging room and keeps Judging sessions on schedule.

Field Reset
These volunteers assist with field reset and moving teams and their robots quickly on and off the competition playing fields.

It is important to have volunteers on hand for use as extra coverage in registration or traffic control areas or as runners for the Judge Advisor, team queuer, and referees. These volunteers can also be reassigned if another volunteer does not show up, or needs to leave due to an emergency or illness.
