Welcome to FTC

FTC is a FIRST Robotics program for 6th-8th graders. “FIRST Tech Challenge students learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, and code robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. Robots are built from a reusable platform, powered by Android technology, and can be coded using a variety of levels of Java-based programming.”

Bloomfield Hills has multiple FTC teams across the district and teams are formed at our two middle schools: North Hills and South Hills. It is important for any robotics family (new or returning) to join our email list. We send monthly newsletters, information on how to register for the robotics season, summer camp and more. Be sure to subscribe if you haven’t already and share this page with any BHSD family interested in FTC. Contact us at info@bloomfieldrobotics.com


Team registration is limited. You don’t want to miss the registration window this spring to ensure you have a spot on a team. Our monthly newsletter will have up-to-date information about registration, so please subscribe above. When registration opens in late April, you will also find the link here!


FTC Coaches should check the Coaches Corner below regularly. All coaches should receive an email in July with a password to access the resources and training.

  • February 2023 – FTC

    As our district shifts from 3 middle schools to 2, we will be forming teams at both North Hills and South Hills Middle Schools. Our established highly rated teams will stay in place and students will have options to stay on their previous FTC team. While we will make all the efforts to ensure every interested student will be placed with their friends, we cannot guarantee this will happen in all circumstances. One thing we are sure of is that EVERY student interested in joining the robotics will have a spot on an FTC team.

    As a parent, the most important fact you need to know is that even if you are new to the FIRST program or if you are an incoming FTC member, you will be asked to help your child’s team. From helping with building robots, strategy, program management, and programming, to providing snacks, making travel arrangements, organizing spirit wear, and much more, there is a place for everyone in the program! Volunteering in FIRST is one of the most meaningful ways of connecting with our children and their friends, and it can foster long-term friendships with other families. Email us at info@bloomfieldrobotics.com if you can help!
