General Info

We are so excited to once again host The Chaminade Showdown Vex tournament on our campus! The event will be held in the Bob Hope Center on Chaminade's West Hills campus. We are working diligently to ensure that all health and safety guidelines are being met. Things will be a little different this year, of course. Most notably, we must require the main team contact / coach to provide a signed statement that they have confirmed each student attending is either vaccinated against COVID-19 or has tested negative for the disease within 72 hours of the event. We will be posting and emailing a document with this statement to make it easy for everyone.

Other differences of note this year include:

  • Pits will be outdoors, under a large tent.
  • Masks will be required at all times, both indoors and outdoors.
  • Lunch will not be provided. We will give you a list of nearby food options and you will have to provide lunch to your teams.
  • We will not have concessions for sale this year. Please plan on bringing your own snacks and drinks. 
  • There will be very limited seating in front of the field. We intend to provide a video feed to the pit area so that teams and supporters can enjoy match viewing in a safe setting.

We will be providing a document outlining all health and safety protocols observed at this event. Keep an eye on your email for more information to follow.

Thanks again for being a part of our community and for working with us through these challenging times. We can't wait to see you all in person with robots ready to play in The Chaminade Showdown!

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

As this event is partially held outdoors, we are keeping an eye on the weather. However, only in extreme circumstances will we cancel due to inclement weather. The pits will be outdoors under a tent or a building overhang. There will be a short, open-air walk between the pits and the building, however, so you are encouraged to prepare by having rain protection for yourself and your robot.

This event is subject to cancellation for major emergency events or any reason that would present an unacceptable risk to our community.

Refund Policy

Payment must be made no later than October 20th. If that is not practical, please contact as soon as possible to discuss arrangements. Refunds will only be offered in the event of tournament cancellation and will arrive approximately 30 days after the event date.

Health and Safety Policies

Please download, print and sign the Chaminade Code of conduct and health and safety protocols document. A representative from each team must sign this document attesting that all students he/she/they supervise are compliant. You can find the document in the documents section or download it here.


You can see the livestream of the event here.


















Please download and complete this form before checking in at The Chaminade Showdown. We are operating on an honor system with regard to vaccination/testing status. We ask that a representative from each school provide this document stating that:

- Everyone attending from your school is either vaccinated or has tested negative for Coronavirus within the past 72 hours.

- Everyone attending from your school has been screened before attending, and none have demonstrated symptoms.

Thank you for your cooperation.
