General Info

Welcome to the CREATE Jr. Heartland Regional Tournament hosted by Alfonza W. Davis Middle School. 

As in prior years, the Heartland Regional CREATE Jr. Tournament will qualify many teams to the U.S. Open Robotics Championship.  Check the documents tab for the qualification details.

Due to the number of teams and our desire to give each team as many matches as possible, the tournament will run into the  afternoon. Please inform parents that this tournament lasts longer than any other tournament they may have attended this season. 

Concessions will be available.


There are a couple of things that we would ask of you coaches/teams that will help to make our event run smoothly. 

  • Please have your team pre-inspect their robot. (The most common cause of inspection rejection is size. The robot must fit within a cube to start the match. It can ‘grow’ after the start by moving an arm for example, but it MUST fit within a cube to start.)
  • Please pay your $45 registration fee through robotevents, or by mailing a check to Davis Middle School by February 28th.  If you have already paid, thank you very much!
