General Info

Leo Robotics is excited to host the VEX Robotics Spin Up Tournament at County Line Church in Auburn, Indiana.  

County Line Church will be the site of the tournament.  This large space has ample seating and allows for the pits and playing fields to be in close proximity to one another.  

The church has a coffee bar and snacks available for purchase.  We are negotiating lunch with a local vendor that will bring orders to the church.  As well, there are several venues in the area for lunch. Please keep in mind that all food and drinks must be kept in the pit area out of respect for the venue.

If we have more than 24 teams interested in competing, the venue is large enough to support a much larger event.  Depending on interest, we may expand the number of teams.  If the total number of registrations has hit 24, please consider putting your team on the waiting list so we can evaluate making the event larger.

We look forward to you participating in our tournament.

Grade Level: All

Skills Challenge Offered: Yes

Judging Format: All In-Person Judging
