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

The 2017 season was Team Dave’s 7th year of competition and we finished as the Tesla division champions at the FIRST Robotics Championships in St. Louis, MO.

Dave knows that most people have never built a robot before, so Dave welcomes students from grades 7-12 and all levels of experience with open arms.
