Strike Zone Robotics was founded in 2015. The team had a break-out success year, winning all rookie awards, and competing at the World Championship in St. Louis, MO. After realizing that the team could compete with world class teams, the team was driven to grow, build, and learn to become competitive among the other world class teams.
In the 2016 season, 5460 made a name for its' self by nearly winning the state championship and ending the season as ranked 3rd out of 411 teams in the state of Michigan. In 2017, the team began to acquire resources and more sponsors, leading to our first every event win at the Troy District event. 2018 was another good year, while competing against some of the harder teams in Michigan.
Strike Zone, who started in a small closets of 1684's room has grown to become a prominent team in the Lapeer community but also in North America. We strive to grow student's into future leaders by giving students opportunity's during their tenure on the team to lead their peers in many ways. Our alumni have been very successful in their next stages if life. Many have received scholarships from their universities. And have done great things.
We work to be the best and that starts with our foundation. Strike Zone Robotics mentors many kindergarten to fifth grade Lego League Teams. These young minds are working hard to kickstart their engineering brains at such a young age.
Those students then move into our VEX robotics teams when in Jr. High, where they can continue to grow and learn more about the engineering process as well as other aspects like Awards and Management.
To this date, Strike Zone strives and works hard to become one of the best teams in FRC.
