General Info

Thank you for your interest in the South-Eastern Michigan VEX league, for VRC teams of all ages.  This is a Saturday afternoon league for teams in the vicinity of Oakland County.    There will be two regular (qualification) sessions and then a final session.  The regular sessions would be short with only 3 or 4 matches per team and no judging.  The final event will have 3 or 4 more qualification matches per team, alliance selection, elimination rounds, judging, and awards.   

Leagues are an ideal training ground for new teams.  Experienced teams can use the league sessions to try out new ideas and work out issues in real matches but in a less competitive environment.
