Team Dave is FRC Team 3683 – the FIRST Robotics Team at St. David CSS in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

The 2017 season is Team Dave’s seventh year of competition. This year Ontario is moving to a District Model for the 2017 season. As a team we will have to adapt to the new challenges ahead of us.

Dave knows that most people have never built a robot before, so Dave welcomes students from all grades and all levels of experience with open arms.
