Participating in a Live Remote Tournament requires teams to have their own VEX IQ field and Pitching In Game Element.  If an organization (school) has multiple registered VEX IQ teams for this event, you will need at 2 fields and 2 (4 preferred) computers with webcam (720p or above) to participate the event from the same location.
