General Info

For the 2021-2022 season, Sunset Ridge School is hosting a Skills Only event.  We are planning to assign programs 40 minute time slots for up to four teams from the same program to come and run practice runs and enter autonomous and driver skills scores. 

Visitors will enter the building through the main doors and go into the gym just inside the main entrance. All people entering the building will be required to wear a mask at all times.  Teams will be assigned a corner of the gym where they will have a pit table and access to a field for practice and matches.  An inspector will come to each corner to go through the inspection checklist on the robot for each team.   Teams will be able to signal a referee/ scorekeeper who will rotate between the teams to take official attempts.  Official attempts will be limited to no more than three autonomous and three driving. Teams will be able to do as many practice runs as time allows.  

At the end of the 40 minutes, teams and spectators will pick up all of their materials and exit the building.  Volunteers will sanitize high touch areas for 15 minutes before bringing in the next set of teams.

To minimize the amount of persons in attendance, we are asking only two spectators per family come to the gym.

Please reach out to Kim Albright at if you need accommodations or have any questions.
