Alliance selections begin 10 minutes after the end of Qualification rounds
Elimination rounds will begin 10 minutes after the Alliance selections
Awards will take place immediately following the final elimination match.

Please be aware that the event will move with the matches. This means that your match may take place earlier than it is written on the schedule!!! Please keep track of matches and be sure you are at the queuing tables before your match is called to the field! Teams who are not present at the field at the match start time will be disqualified from that match. "Present" means that at least one person from the team is at the queuing table to represent the team, with or without a robot and other team members. Matches will be started when the head referee arrives at the field, and will not be held for teams to get their robots to the field from the pit area. The head referee may, at his or her discretion, wait to begin a match if teams with robots on the field need a few extra seconds to ensure their robot is turned on and positioned correctly; however, this is not guaranteed and it is expected that teams will be ready to begin the match when the head referee arrives at the field.

* Each team will be offered exactly three attempts at Robot Skills Challenge and three attempts at Programming Skills Challenge. Missed runs cannot be made up. The skills line will close promptly at 2:30 PM in order to allow judges time to deliberate on awards. Teams not in line by 2:30 PM will lose any remaining skills runs.
