General Info

Welcome to the Showdown in the Southeast!

This event will bring together some of the best VEX Robotics teams throughout the southeast and beyond for a two-day event. 

Showcase events provide an opportunity for teams to play in-person tournaments with multiple organizations. Teams will compete with their robots and present their efforts to in-person judges so that they might experience an end-of-season event to showcase their accomplishments.

The Excellence Award will qualify teams to compete at VEX Worlds 2022 in Dallas, TX. 

Note: This is a date change from the originally scheduled date.  This event will be held on Friday, June 11th.

Registration Limits

Only 2 teams per organization may register for each Showcase event. Each individual team may select only 1 Showcase event to attend.

Registration will open without organizational limits 4 weeks prior to the event start date to fill any remaining capacity. The same team may place itself on multiple waitlists, but if that team gets invited to multiple events, that team may only choose one of those events to attend even if there is open capacity at a second event.


Note: This agenda may change if a significant number of teams register. All times are in Eastern Daylight Time.

11:30 AM Doors Open

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

We will continue to assess COVID-19 targets as we get closer to the event date. 

Refund Policy

Teams who wish to remove themselves from the event will receieve a full refund if they notify the Event Partner 4-weeks prior to the event.

Teams who have registered but have not paid or submitted a PO 4-weeks prior to the event will be removed from the event unless special arrangement has been made with the Event Partner.

If the event is cancelled, a full event registration refund will be given to all paid teams. Teams are responsible for their own transportation and hotel costs. 

Health and Safety Policies

As we get closer to the event, we will continually assess whether hosting an in-person tournament is safe. We are committed to creating a safe and exciting event for all!  We appreciate your cooperation during this unprecedented time and ask that you visit the CDC website for the latest information. 

1. All participants will be required to wear a mask and face shield at all times while they are inside the venue. An appropriate face-covering must cover your nose and mouth and be secured under your chin, fit snugly against the sides of your face, and be secured with ear loops or secured around your head. A neck gaiter does not meet these criteria.

2. Each team will be permitted to bring 3 drive team members. Each organization will be permitted to bring a single adult mentor. Spectators will not be permitted inside the venue. 

3. Temperature checks will be required to enter the venue. Individuals with temperatures over 100.4 degrees will not be admitted.
