General Information:

This is our third year hosting an Elementary School VEX IQ event, and our first as an official state qualifying tournament so please join us and help build the increasing capacity for youth robotics in our South Central Indiana region!

Event payments are expected when you register for the event and must be completed 2 weeks prior to the event date.  Unpaid teams will be removed from the event to allow teams on the wait list to register.  Please contact us if there are considerations to be made. IF the event is full please also contact us regarding availability. We will do our best to accommodate all interested teams within the space we have available.

Please let me know in advance any accessibility needs so we can plan pit space accordingly.

Check-in:

In order to keep our event running on-time, check-in will close promptly at 9:00 AM the morning of the event. Please contact by phone if you are going to be late to the event or have trouble locating the school. Match Lists will be generated as scheduled and will not be re-run thereafter.

If you will be bringing a different team than what has been registered, I will need that information no later than 12:00 p.m. the day before the event. There will be no changes the day of the event.

Please make sure you have paperwork completed to turn in at the time of Check-In.
