Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

If any session has to be cancelled, we will offer an additional session.

If league events can’t be held in person indoors, we will explore the possibility of holding the remaining league sessions in person outdoors. If league events can’t be held in person indoors or outdoors, then we will try to convert the remaining league sessions to Live Remote Tournaments. Skills events must be held in person, but it is possible to schedule one team at a time, to hold events outdoors, and to schedule events on weekends in January for better light and temperatures.

If teams are not allowed to meet in person, then teams will be encouraged to try VEXcode VR and to compete with the new VIQC Virtual Skills in VEXcode IQ:
https://www.vexrobotics.com/get-started/vex-vr-skills.

The Event Partner will contact teams if any league sessions must be reschedules or modified. Teams should keep their contact information up to date on RobotEvents.com and include both school and non-school phone numbers.

Refund Policy

Full refunds minus the $5.00 processing fee will be available until one week before the first session. After that, refunds based on special circumstances may be made at the discretion of the Event Partner.
