General Info

TSA affiliated teams have registration priority. If your team is NOT TSA affiliated, it will be waitlisted until registration closes. If at that time open spots exist, your team may be added to the tournament and you will be notified.

TSA affiliated and Kansas TSA State Conference registered and paid VEX robotics teams already have the cost of this registration covered (it is included in the TSA State Conference registration fee). Therefore, if your team meets this criteria, select pay later for PAYMENT METHOD.

There are NO QUALIFICATION MATCHES in this tournament. Skills rankings determine the 8 seeds for the elimination rounds. Each team will have a maximum of 3 autonomous and 3 driver skills matches. See the event schedule, listed under the AGENDA link and the official VEX Spin Up game manual for more information.
