Do I need to know Robotics to join FRC team?
Or will they teach us the basics of building Robots and stuff?

When I did FRC in high school we had a corporate sponsor to teach us some of the basics of robotics. We did have some team members who also knew a bit about programming, but most of us came in without much knowledge and they started us out on stuff like "How to safely machine aluminum."
Most teams accept all knowledge levels, but if you have a highly competitive team then it may be worth discussing your background with the team coach to see if it will be an issue.

Ask the people sponsoring. Probably they will want some eager learners who are willing to follow orders to get the hands on skut work done (drilling, bending, bolting, screwing)
