General Info

The Omaha Area VEX IQ League's mission is to provide convenient opportunities for elementary and middle school students in Omaha Metro area to compete in local robotics tournaments.  League Play dates are especially designed to be an introduction to VEX IQ for young and new teams, the shorter format allows each event to last about 2 hours.

The Championship Event for the Omaha Area VEX IQ League Play will be held in the final session on Jan 10th, 2023 at Holy Cross School.   The top twenty-four (24) teams from the qualification Ranking will participate in Finals at the Championship Event.  These twenty-four (24) teams will be automatically paired into twelve (12) Alliances.  The top scoring alliance in Finals will earn the Tournament Champion Award. 

Skills Challenges will be available at each League Play event to all teams, with 3 Max Driver attempts and 3 Max Programming attempts per team.  

Students this year will design robots for the Slapshot, details can be found here:  https://www.vexrobotics.com/vexiq/competition/viqc-current-game
