Wondering how to qualify for California Region 2 Regional Championships?

There are three ways for teams to qualify to Championship events: 

  • Qualifying Award: Winning a qualifying award at an official event in the team’s Event Region. 
  • Robot Skills Ranking: If the Championship event in the team’s region is not filled to capacity through qualifying awards, teams may qualify through the World Skills Standings sorted for the Event Region and by grade level. Teams invited through Robot Skills Challenge Rankings are invited in ranked order after the results of the last qualifying event in the region have been posted. Scores earned after this date will not be used to qualify teams to their Championship. 
  • Waitlist: If there is remaining capacity due to teams not accepting the invite after the Robot Skills Rankings invites have been issued, the capacity will either be lowered, and the event will be closed, or teams will be invited from the waitlist. This will be decided by the REC Foundation Manager.

Grade Level: High School

Skills Challenge Offered: Yes

Judging Format: All In-Person Judging

It is each team’s responsibility to ensure that the payments have been processed in time. We will use the visible record of payment on robotevents.com to make the determination.

Teams who have registered but have not paid (or submitted a PO) 2-weeks prior to the event may be removed from the event, unless prior special arrangements have been made with the event partners.

In the unlikely case of a cancellation, the full event registration fee (minus the $5.00 USD RECF fee per registration) will be refunded to all teams.
