Competition Preparation

All teams should come prepared for competition. Here are a few steps that every team should take to ensure that they are prepared.

 

Review all game information: Current Game Webpage

  1. Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time for adjustments. Robots must use VEX V5 parts. Please self inspect before arriving at the tournament using the V5 Robot Inspection Checklist

  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

  8. Remember that safety comes first, please don't bring tools that pose a safety risk to your team, or others nearby, as teams are close to each other in the venue pit area. Also, remember no grinding or other actions that create sparks, ask the tournament director for a safe location if grinding is needed.

Health and Safety Policies

COVID Information

Face Coverings
Face coverings will be optional for everyone, everywhere throughout the tournament, in the stands, pits, and at the fields.

Concessions 
Concessions will be available.

Spectators
Spectators are allowed at this time, if that changes the team coaches will be notified.

Team Health
Please monitor the health of your team. We trust that everyone keeps their teams informed of their health as related to COVID infection. Anyone with potential COVID symptoms or possible COVID exposure should not attend the tournament.

Pit Tables
We will provide extra space between tables in the pit area and the walking areas from the pits to the competition field. We prefer multiple teams from the same organization so that organizations can have pit tables in social groupings. We will provide enough space so that there is proper spacing between team tables and a larger spacing between organizations. Individual teams will be grouped together at one table.

Competition Fields
We will be using two competition fields, one skills field, and one practice field. Robots and drivers will need to arrive ready to compete. 

Changing Conditions
We might need to make adjustments to our event due to local and state COVID guidelines.  The team coaches will be notified of any changes as we get closer to the event.
