Información general

Welcome to our R5 Blended VRC League, 

For our Blended HS/MS League, we are trying to limit to 4 HS teams/3 MS teams on our Registered Teams List, with other teams going to the wait list and moving to a competing team if spots are available after registration closes. This is to make sure that every school/organization has a chance to sign up.   

1.  Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time for adjustments. The inspection checklist can be found here. 

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. 

  • Goggles/Safety Glasses 

  • Spare parts & tools 

  • Batteries and chargers 

  • Programming cable 

  • Power strip 

  • Laptop computer 

  • Engineering notebook (if you have one, helpful for Judges, Design and Excellence Awards ) 

  • Banners and other decorations for your team pit 

  • Giveaways if you have them 

5. Be sure to read 101 Things You Should Know Before Your First VEX Tournament.  

6. Remember that safety comes first, please don't bring tools that pose a safety risk to your team, or others nearby as the venue is a very tight fit. Also, remember no grinding or other actions that create sparks. 

7. Understand how the game will be played. VEX participants are more than welcome to watch the referee training videos before they attend a tournament. 

8. Read through the Robot troubleshooting guide.
