2. Check the official VEX forums for rule updates and changes.

3. Carefully read all of the information contained in the tournament posting on RobotEvents.com

4. Pack for the event the day before the day of departure. Here are a few items that you don't want to forget.

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

If CCS VEX has to cancel the event due to an Emergency / Bad Weather refunds will be sent out, minus the $5 RECF processing fee.

Refund Policy

No refunds will be given for teams, if the event is held, regardless of the reason, once the event closes.

As with last season, we are unsure of how COVID-19 will impact the tournament season. Our goal is to host all of our events as long as policy will allow. Even if it means the event is closed to spectators and/or limited to the number of adults per team permitted in the facility.

Teams that are unable to attend due to Covid-19 will need to reach out to the event partner so they can move the team to the waitlist and open spots for other teams to compete. These changes need to be made prior to the event closing.

If CCS VEX cancels the event due to COVID, full refunds minus the $5 REC processing fee will be done. 

Health and Safety Policies

Remember that Covid-19 may impact the event. We are currently under a mask optional protocol and social distancing of 3 feet where possible. If changes are made within our district regarding face mask, limited capacity, and/or social distancing measures the event partner will email the coaches as soon as possible. Be mindful that changes are happening daily in our state. Be patient and understanding as we continue to navigate through the Covid-19 pandemic.
