Welcome to FTC Team 9773!

We are a friend-based FIRST Tech Challenge robotics team in Northern Westchester, NY. We were founded in 2015 by FLL veterans who wanted to continue having fun in FIRST after FLL. We had a successful rookie year in the 2015-16 FIRST Res-Q season, and then made it to the World Championship in the 2016-17 Velocity Vortex season. We were Hudson Valley Champions for the 2017-2018 Relic Recovery season! We are off to a good start this 2018-2019 Rover Ruckus, meeting the working robot in 36hrs challenge, and winning the Inspire award and our robot making it to the finals at our first Red Hook FTC Qualifier! Stay tuned...

As a team, we are much more than building a winning competitive robot. We also strive to foster STEM in our neighboring community, especially underserved school districts, so that kids like us of all backgrounds can also enjoy the rewarding experience that FIRST and other STEM activities brings.
