General Info

  • Welcome to FAMU Full Volume ES&MS VEX IQ Regional Scrimmages!  

  • In order to participate, your team(s) must also be registered  for the FAMU Full Volume Regional Finale.

  • Please register for EACH scrimmage in which your team(s) will participate.

  • Please See Travel Information for exact location. The location alternates between Fairview and FAMU DRS!
  • We are excited to have your team participate in one or more of these scrimmages.



Only 20 teams will be accepted for each scrimmage.    40 teams can compete in the Finale Tournament in January.

 If more than 20 register for the same date, the Event Partners reserve  the discretion to select the teams that will participate. Most likely it will be decided by first come, first served.  But the EP's would like to ensure that teams that have not yet participated in a scrimmage have the opportunity to do so.


NO OUTSIDE FOOD MAY BE BROUGHT ON CAMPUS as per principals.  Food or snacks will be available at a modest price at a concession stand or by pre-ordering.  For more information, contact the event sponsor of that specific event.


Why do you have free scrimmages but must pay for the Finale?

The fee for the scrimmages is included in the fee for the finale. A team may register for a scrimmage, but must register and pay the fees, not only to the VEX foundation for each team, but also for the FAMU Finale before participating in a scrimmage.  The registration for the Finale is at  A team may not participate in scrimmages without registering and paying for the Finale.

WHY? The Event Partners would like to allow teams to register for only one or more scrimmages because the VIQRC is relatively new in this area, and because many teams  may not have a robot ready until later in the year.  Some teams might participate only in scrimmages or only in the Finale. This is an unusual situation. Each team must ensure that the team is registered and has paid for the Finals so that we can keep the scrimmages 'free' - or included in the price of the Finale. 


More Information:

Each scrimmage begins with Team Check-in and Robot Inspection. Teams need to check in by 5:45 PM and robots need to pass inspection by 6:45 PM to be included in the  match schedule. See Agenda.

Before the first scrimmage, participants are expected to complete the participant release form . (also available in Spanish)  Once per season covers all events.

At Team Check-in for the first scrimmage, teams verify that they have uploaded release forms for all team members and signed up to provide one volunteer for at least one scrimmage.

At each scrimmage, each team will be scheduled for three  Qualifying Matches.

We will have two competition fields and one practice fields at each scrimmage if it is required by the number of teams competing.

The team's coach who is officially listed in robotevents as the primary contact receives all team emails, so read the email titles and content carefully.
