"Speed is very important, don't use timing for auton unless you have to. Don't be afraid to ask for help.
I have learned a lot of lessons through FRC. I have learned leadership skills, how to work as a team, and have acquired many new talents and skills through it as well. The advice I would give a rookie team is to keep trying and to be innovative and creative. I would say that even the craziest ideas can work if you put enough work into it.
I learned a lot of things about myself, mainly new interests, such as enjoying scouting and designing t-shirts. I also learned a bit about electricity and wiring, so that was pretty cool. The main advice I would give a rookie team is don't be afraid to ask for help. People in FRC are extremely nice and very willing to help anyone in need."
