General Info

Looking for a last chance to raise your teams skills score to try and maybe get some of the last spots into the state tournament? ***

Don't want to sit at a competition all day?

Looking to do an event that doesn't cost a lot?

If you said yes to all three (or even one), then this competition is for you!!

This will be a Blended in-person SKILLS only event for VEX IQ Slapshot. We will provide a signup sheet to pick the time you would like to come. Then just show up in your time slot to do your skills runs and then leave and go home, no need to sit around all day.

We will not be doing food orders, but we will have a small Concession Stand open for snacks.

We will send out a trophy for first place. ( We will send out a trophy for 1st place in Elemantary as well as long as there are at least 15 ES teams)

-- Signup form will only be sent to you once you have paid. --

** As of 3/7, most of the open time slots left are in the late afternoon, FYI

*** We cannot guaranty there will be teams selected from the skills list to qualify for state, this is done by the RECF. From previous seasons, the RECF has pulled teams off the top of the skills list that were not qualified in Indiana to fill out any remaining spots still left for state tournament after all the teams who have qualified are registered. Additionally, having a high skills score can help with worlds as well, as you could get an invite off skills score or it would help compliment you if you put yourself on the waitlist.
