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

The 2014 season is Team Dave’s fourth year of competition. So far this year we have won the Excellence in Engineering Award, the Creativity Award, and have qualified for the 2014 FRC World Championship in St. Louis, Missouri.
