Also, can you change the wording for this rule to age specific VIQC open to 7 yrs to 11 yrs Elementary and 11 yrs to 14 Middle School.

Answered by committee

The Q&A platform is intended to be a communication channel for questions such as "is this interpretation of a rule legal?" not a discussion forum to post questions such as "I disagree with this rule, can it be changed?"

The definition of Student in Section 2 of the Spin Up Game Manual outlines the age requirements for participation in VRC, based on the Student's birth date and age at the time of the VEX World Championship. If a Student meets this criteria, they are eligible to compete.
