STEAMworks is hosting the 10th annual Central Florida VEX IQ Pitching in held at STEAMworksFL, Leesburg  FL. Central Florida Rise above tournament is a combined Elementary/Middle school tournament. Specific award winners will qualify for the North/Central Florida Regional Championship.

*split Elementary/Middle school excellence award depends on the number of registered teams from each grade level.  

This will be a VEX IQ Rise above event.  We will have a Teamwork tournament, Programming & Skills challenges.

ALL Payments MUST be sent to robotevents.com no cash or checks for registration at the door.

Emails with more information will be sent as we get closer to the event. 

Taems that qualify for a Championship Event in Florida will qualify to the North/Central Florida Regional Championship.

Failure to register and pay within two weeks of the competition date where the regional championship spot was earned forfeits your team's spot--so be sure and plan ahead to register and pay on time.

Teams are responsible to have teams registered and fees paid two weeks following earning the regional championship spot unless of course, your event you win a regional spot is the final two weeks before the tournament, in which you must be prepared to pay immediately following that event.  

**The State qualifying Skills score cut off will be two weeks prior to the regional championship.  The number of teams coming qualifying from the skills list is based on open spots after all events have completed two weeks prior to the regional championship.  While teams at events now fill double qualified spots from skills at the event, there will still be teams winning spots from multiple competitions, these additional spots come from the top combined skills scores to teams who have not yet won a spot for a regional championship as in previous years.  Teams that qualify from the states skills list will have a short time to registered and pay for the regional championship, please plan accordingly and be prepared for a potential invitation two weeks prior to the regional championship.

Teams that move on to the World Championship in Dallas, Texas will be responsible for registering for the World Championship event promptly as they will only have ONE week to register AND pay before their invitation to Worlds is lost!  Hint--Plan to win--plan for success--Plan accordingly with your teams from day one to win state spots, win a spot at states and play in worlds!!  Plan to win both in spirit and financial planning!!  Understand the awards and all rules.  Contact Ashley Phipps if you need any assistance on understanding awards or qualifying for regionals or the worlds championships.  ashley_phipps@roboticseducation.org
