Battle by the Beach will be hosted at Texas A&M Galveston.
VexU students will have the option to participate in skills for free if they choose to volunteer for our two blended events VEX IQ's Full Volume & VEX VRC's Over Under.
Our VexU referee is an expert at her trade. She has refereed in multiple world championships, signature events, and the U.S. Create event.
Our event will be live-streamed on YouTube. Links will be posted and shared prior to the event.
Fun Stuff To Do!
Sea Life Facilities:
Students will be provided walk-through tours of our sea life facility from 9 am- 4 PM Friday. More detailed tours will be provided to those who sign up at the event. The detailed tours will be limited and are on a first-come basis. Space is limited.
Ship simulators will be open for tours from 10:30 AM - 4:00 PM on Friday. In-depth, training will be provided to interested students on Friday from 5 PM- 6 PM. A sign-up will be on sight and provided on a first-come basis. Space is limited.
Sea Camp Dissections:
Opportunities to explore cartilaginous fish and the bony fish will be available from 9-5 Friday. These will be walk-up labs and no scheduling is needed.
Vendor exploration will be set up in the Flag Room. Vendors will have booths for students to navigate throughout the day.
There are a plethora of hotels to choose from that your teams and families will receive discount codes for! In addition, Visit Galveston has secured special QR codes that will be shared with all registered teams to provide discounts for dining, and entertainment such as the Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens, and local museums.
Food and drinks
No outside food or drink may be brought into the facility unless medically necessary and are communicated prior to the event. Picnic areas will be provided outside. It is our hope that students will enjoy dining with the students and staff at the highly-rated facilities on campus and fully indulge in "campus life". All lunches Must be ordered by November 1st. An email with an order form will be distributed to the email associated with each registered team and shared on slack. Lunches will be picked up in the Flag room. Please only send coaches to pick up meals for the team.
Please email lunch forms to [email protected]
Drive Team Meeting:
To simplify the day of the event and really give our teams the opportunity to think up some good questions for our coaches, the Google form must be completed prior to October 20th. Please list which game your question is pertaining to. A link with the drive team meeting will be sent out to the email associated with the account prior to the tournament. This will also be posted to Slack. This will be a prerecorded video that teams can watch at their leisure. This way, students are afforded more time to explore all that the event offers.
