General Info

Welcome to the  VIQC Slapshot competition being held on the 21st of January 2023 at St Andrews International School Bangkok. All teams need to be registered with St Andrews by the 30th of September 2022, there is an entrance fee of 3000 THB per event per team. Schools need to register on Robot Events for the VIQC Nationals by the 30th of November. ****Note, you must also registered with St Andrews, dates for registration confirmation with the school and registeration on robot events have different end dates****

We are limiting the maximum number of teams to 3 per school, schools that have more than 3 teams for elementary/middle school will need to hold internal scrimamges to decide what teams attend the VIQC Scrimmage and VIQC Nationals.

Similar to previous years, St Andrews believe in making this event as exiciting as possible and have set a theme for this years event which is 'Under the Sea' - this links to the VEX blue for VIQC and we will have special awards for best dressed and best booths. Lets see how creative schools and teams can be to bring further excitement to the day.
