General Info

Doors will open at 7:30 for sign in and set-up of your pits table. Please make sure your coach/mentor has all of the required documents for each team member. And, don’t forget your safety glasses.

We want to make our annual event, one to remember for the students, teachers, mentors, and parents. Bring your A game as the competition will be fierce, but only on the field. Our hope is that all teams will arrive with and maintain a cooperative spirit. The VEX culture is founded on shared learning. Let’s make sure we live this culture by always sharing; ideas, tools, parts, advice, and by assisting each other in every way possible.

Please make sure to label everything you bring to the tournament; parts, batteries, battery chargers, tools, tool boxes, extension cords, plug strips, etc.

From our perspective, every student participating, on a Saturday, after many hours of “fun work”, is certainly a winner. The knowledge and experience gained will last a lifetime, and hopefully will motivate them to pursue exciting and rewarding career opportunities.

Robotics, the only school sport where every student can go pro.
