Refund Policy

Refund Policy
Teams that need to withdraw from the event before the event deadline and produce an invoice showing payment will be refunded in full less a $5 processing fee at our earliest convenience.  Teams that withdraw between the event deadline and the day of the event will receive NO refund, unless as determined by the Event Partner that there are extenuating circumstances (these will be rare).

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

Please check this tab for the most current information in case of inclement weather.

The safety of players, coaches, and volunteers is our first priority. This includes travel hazards in case of inclement weather. Every effort will be made to keep the event running on-time, but if necessary we may delay the start or postpone to the following day (depending on availability of the venue). 

Volunteer

We Need You!

Many volunteers are needed to make this event a success. The Wisconsin VEX State Tournaments are run to benefit all VEX Teams in Wisconsin. As such we need all VEX Teams in Wisconsin to help make them successful and sustainable events.

There are lots of volunteer roles that need to be filled. There are also four seperate State Tournaments happening the same weekend, and we can use help at all of them. Consider volunteering for one of the events you are not participating in. That will give you more time at your event and help make the other events successful, too!

We expect all teams participating in the Wisconsin VEX State Tournament to register at least one volunteer to help at one of the events. More are welcome and encouraged to sign up. If every team can do this, we will not have any trouble getting enough volunteers for the events.

Volunteer Signup Links

Signup Link: https://signup.com/go/QAPtfqw

Judges and Referees

Volunteers to serve as Judges and Referees are also needed for all events. No experience is necessary to be a Judge or a Referee, but those with experience are encouraged to volunteer. These rolls mostly require an all-day commitment. The tournament can assist with hotel lodging for judge and referee volunteers that need it. Coaches and VEX alumni are encouraged to serve as judges for events that they do not have teams participating in. This is a great opportunity to learn how to help your teams improve as well as help teams in other programs.

Age Requirements for Judges and Referees

  • All judges at the State Tournament must be adults (18 or older and out of high school)
  • Referees/scorekeepers must be at least 15 years old

Judges Signup Link: https://signup.com/go/QAPtfqw (same as other volunteers)

Referree Signup Link: https://signup.com/client/invitation2/secure/3044025/true#/invitation (note this is for multiple events throughout the year - find the State Tournament section to signup for state)

If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact event coordinators Nathan Nolte (nnolte@fvlhs.org) or Ron Lohse (rlohse@xaviercatholicschools.org).

IQ Fields

Any organization that has at least two participating teams is asked to bring at least one VEX IQ field to the State tournament. If any local teams can bring more than one, please reach out to me and let me know. If this is a hardship for any teams travelling a great distance, also please contact me.

Team Party!

All teams (VRC and VEX IQ) are invited to a Team Party that will take place on Saturday night from 7:00-9:30 PM in the venue after we have taken down VRC and setup for VEX IQ. We will have board games and video games to play as well as some fun and competitive activities. We will also have pizza and drinks available for purchase. VEX IQ teams may also check-in and run skills for a portion of this time.

Please have your teams pre-inspect their robots to make sure they will pass inspection. The inspection checklist can be found at the Download tab.
