General Info

This league is primarily for teams from schools in LAUSD Local District Northwest and Local District Northeast. Teams from schools in other LAUSD Local Districts may participate if space is available.

This league will be meeting in the Auditorium and the outdoor Cafeteria/Lunch Area at Vintage Magnet Elementary School. Parking is available on the street.

When you register for this league, please choose Pay Later as your Payment Method and bring a league fee check for $155 per team to the first league session. Please make your check payable to Friends of Vintage Magnet.

Before the first league session, teams need to upload the release forms for all student and adult team members in RobotEvents.com.

Each league session begins with Team Check-in and Robot Inspection. Teams need to check in by 9:45 AM and robots need to pass inspection by 10:00 AM to be included in the Teamwork Challenge match schedule.

At Team Check-in for the first league session, teams turn in league fee checks and verify that they have uploaded release forms for all team members.

At the first Qualifying Session, each team will be scheduled for one Teamwork Challenge Practice Match and three Teamwork Challenge Qualifying Matches.

At the next two Qualifying Sessions, each team will be scheduled for four Teamwork Challenge Qualifying Matches.

 

At the final Championship session in January, teams need to check in by 8:45 AM and robots need to pass inspection by 9:00 AM to be included in the Final Teamwork Challenge match schedule. In addition, teams will be invited to submit Digital Engineering Notebooks in person and will have the opportunity to choose a time slot for the team Interview.  Teams will have the option to participate in up to three Driving Skills Matches and up to three Programming Skills Matches. Robot Skills Challenge Matches are not scheduled. The Championship session concludes with Teamwork Challenge Finals Matches and Awards.

We will have two competition fields and two practice fields for each of the four sessions. We strongly encourage each school to bring one practice field, we have plenty of space outdoor and it would be useful for each team to practice before their matches.

Additional details will be posted here later. Please check regularly.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
