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.
