General Info

Welcome to the Butter Nexus League. This league is for high school VRC teams in the Erie, Longmont, and surrounding areas. The idea of this league is to have the ability to stay close to home and have some great competition among our teams.*

*This event is open to all High School VRC teams in Colorado

The events will happen in Erie, CO, either at the Erie Community Library or Erie High School. We will run meets every other week, skipping holiday breaks, and finishing in January. Please see the agenda for more information.

The league has to have 16 teams minimum, but each session does not. 

  • Students that participate at least 60% of the total Matches available will be ranked above Teams that participate in less than 60% of the total Matches available (e.g., if the league offers 3 ranking sessions with 4 Qualification Matches per Team, teams that participate in 8 or more Matches will be ranked higher than Teams who participate in 7 or fewer Matches). 
  • A best practice is to create a schedule for which teams are attending which Ranking Session - ask teams to sit out a session in order to keep the Ranking Session numbers down. Smaller Rankings sessions = more matches for teams, less time needed to run those matches, and fewer fields and volunteers needed.

We know there is bad weather during the winter months, but we will keep and eye on the current conditions each week and keep teams updated.
