General Info

Welcome to the 4th. Annual Spartan Championship-Middle School.  We are excited to bring together some of Southern California's finest teams and battle for a chance to go to the state championships.  If this event is full please place yourself on the wait list.

Teams that have not checked in 45 minutes prior to the beginning of the qualifying matches will be dropped from the roster so that the match list may be run. Teams that are running late must contact the event partner prior to this cut off if they do not wish to be dropped. 

Teams must be paid three weeks prior to the event. Teams not paid at this time may be dropped at the event partner's discretion to allow teams in from the wait list.

Match Lists will be generated as scheduled and cannot be re-run.

Note: This event is planned to be in person and will follow all LA County Health guidelines.

Competition Preparation

This event is sure to be a fast-paced and exciting event. All teams should come prepared for competition. Here are a few steps that every team should take to ensure that they are prepared.

*Masks are required for all individuals while indoors.

1. Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time for adjustments. Please make sure to keep in mind at all times.

2. Check the official VEX forums for rule updates and changes.

3. Carefully read all of the information contained in the tournament posting on RobotEvents.com

4. Pack for the event the day before the day of departure. Here are a few items that you don't want to forget.
