Match Load Protections


Colin Smith (Event Partner)

If a robot is touching their match load zone or match load bar, will there be any protections while a match load is being placed on the robot (per <SG6> point 2)? As an Event Partner I am worried about hands in the field + robots playing defense.

Thank you for your question. There are no rules directly related to protections while a Match Load is being placed onto a Robot, other than standard overarching rules that apply to all interactions, e.g. <S1>, <G1>, <G13>, and <G14>.
