Competition Preparation

All teams should come prepared for competition. Here are a few steps that every team should take to ensure that they are prepared.

Review all game information: Current Game Webpage

  1. Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time for adjustments. Robots must use VEX V5 parts. Please self inspect before arriving at the tournament using the V5 Robot Inspection Checklist
  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
    • Power strip and extension cord
    • Laptop computer
    • Programming cable
    • Engineering notebook (Required for judged awards)
    • Banners and other decorations for your team pit table
    • Giveaways if you have them
  5. Be sure to read 101 Things You Should Know Before Your First VEX Tournament.
  6. Review the descriptions and criteria for the awards that are being given during the tournament.
  7. Prep for your interviews with the judges and read the Judge's Guide. Check the awards tab to see what awards will be given during the tournament.
  8. Remember that safety comes first, please don't bring tools that pose a safety risk to your team, or others nearby, as teams are close to each other in the venue pit area.
