January 5 is the kickoff for the 2013 FIRST Robotics Competition and once again Gates will be providing belts and sprockets in the kit of parts. We encourage teams to gain experience with belt drives before the build season which is why Gates is currently accepting preseason orders. After the FRC kickoff Gates will be offering several belts and sprockets as part of our in-season ordering. Then, after the season is over scholarships will be available to Seniors whose robots contained at least one Gates belt.

Please email for more information about preseason orders. If you need help selecting parts or want to find more information about Gates and FIRST go to You can also go here to watch the Gates presentation shown at FRC Kickoff Workshops last year.
