NOTICE: "Due to the potential safety risk of those traveling from China, and for the safety of all attending, the CREATE U.S. Open Robotics Championship scheduled from March 30th through April 4th, 2020, CREATE leadership, including the CREATE Board of Directors, have determined the best course of action is to restrict all Chinese teams from attending this year. This restriction includes mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
Welcome to the CREATE Foundation U.S. Open Robotics Championship. The U.S. Open has grown into one of the largest robotics tournaments in the world and we hope you can join us this year.
We expect the 2020 U.S. Open to be the biggest and best yet. Regular season tournaments from around the world are qualifiers for this signature event. We wish all teams the very best of luck.
There are six distinct divisions in this multifacted event. This is the CREATE Jr. Division. If you are looking for one of our other divisions: VRC-High School, VRC- Middle School, VEX IQ, or the Open Program Division, please return to the main RobotEvents page and select the proper event.
CREATE Sponsored events require teams to understand and accept a Tournament Code of Conduct. This Code of Conduct will help clarify the role of students and adults at CREATE events. Please be sure to read through the entire CREATE Tournament Code of Conduct and be sure that all members of your team understand it as well. We believe these simple rules will help everyone have a great experience.
All team members, coaches and any adult assisting a team are required to fill out and submit our U.S. Open Waiver form. Be sure to read the waiver form over thougoughly. To help event registration to move along quickly we ask each person to have filled out this waiver prior to arriving. Thank you in advance for helping with this. Here is a direct link to our Waiver form. (Please note: This waiver is mandatory, but is the only one required.)
Join our great team of volunteers! Benefits include a FREE hot lunch, snacks, beverages, an event t-shirt and the pride in knowing you were part of making the event a success.
