News and Announcements


We are excited to present the 2022 SBPLI FIRST® Robotics Competition Long Island Regionals!
Long Island Regional #1 is March 21-23, 2022
Long Island Regional #2 is March 24-26, 2022

While we would have preferred an event such as the ones we had prior to the pandemic, we believe our COVID restrictions of no spectators, limited team size, use of masks, hand sanitizer stations, cleaning, and spacing where possible provide the best environment to have a safe and rewarding event.
