General Info

This FREE event is planned to support the new Aerial Drone Competition teams in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) areas.  It is open to other teams as well. If your teams are already registered for the season - please register them using the Register Button.  If you are just wanting to learn about the program and would like to bring a "team" reach out by email to confirm how many students plan to attend so that a spot can be held for  you. 

This is not a qualifying tournament. The 2024 Eclipse season ended on March 17th but post season scrimmages and workshops are still be held to allow new and experienced teams opportunities to compete in a learning environment to prepare for the next competition season. 

  • Teams are urged to upload the Participant Release Form for each student. 
  • Teams are reminded that their drone (CoDrone EDU)  must be inspected prior to participation in matches flights or skills.
  •  You should plan your arrival time to allow time to set up your Pit Area, Check-in, and get successfully inspected.
  • Safety glasses will be required.
  • This will be a fun and engaging scrimmage and learning opportunity!
