Welcome to the website of FIRST Team 862 of Canton, MI! Our team is made up of students from Salem, Canton, and Plymouth High Schools, and competes annually in the FIRST Robotics Competition. FRC, as it is often shortened to, is a worldwide competition with over 2000 teams from all 50 states and a number of countries. Feel free to browse around - you might want to check out this year's competition, look at our awesome sponsors, or maybe visit the FIRST website.

Our team has been around for over 12 seasons, and in that time has become very well-established, both in our school and in our community. Originally numbered Team 465 with so few students you could count them on your fingers, Team 862 has grown to include over 60 students, 15 mentors, and several great sponsors. Our team engages in a number of outreach activities - in addition to numerous small demonstrations throughout Plymouth and Canton, we raise funds for cancer at Relay for Life and demonstrate at the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival.

 This website provides not only information about FIRST our team, but resources for other teams as well. We have some great training presentations available for any team to use, and provide the Lightning Robotics Match Results Retrieval System, software that allows teams' websites to display their match results automatically.
