Q: How do I sign/register up my child? A: If sign up is open, the link to registration form will be provided on the main home page. Registration for the season opens in June-July and closes in November.
Q: How do I sign up for a particular challenge (e.g. Engineering)? A: You don’t. Most teams choose their challenge as a group, so your child may not get his/her first choice. That said, if you manage a team and form it around a particular challenge, you will have more control.
Q: Can non-Lexington residents participate? A: Yes!
Q: What is the fee structure? Registration fee is $100. An additional $25 per child would be collected by the team manages for the material. This material cost is one time for the season. This brings the estimated total cost to $125 per child.
Q: Are there any other fees? A: On rare occasions, the teams may use up lots of materials and need another $25. We do not recall the last time that happened.
Q: How do I pay? A: LexDI registration form contains the link to pay the registration fee ($100) online and place your child's name in the Order Note. Payment is collected and processed by Lexington Community Recreation (LCE) center. You will receive an automatic confirmation email from LCE with order #. You will be required to enter the order number in the registration form before submitting the form.
Q: When are the team meetings? A: This is decided by the team members, team managers and team parents at a convenient time that works for all the kids. This could be Sat AM, Sat PM, Sun AM, Sun PM or any of the weekday evenings. Suggested duration is a two hour meetings at least once a week. Due to Covid19 in 2020, the meetings could be held virtually.
Q: About how many kids do this in Lexington? A: We had about ~150 kids participate in the 2019-2020 season.
