General Info

Note: By popular request, the first session will be delayed one week, from October 12 to October 19.

This league is primarily for teams from schools in LAUSD Local District Central. Other teams may participate if space is available. The league will be meeting in Multi-Purpose Room.

When you register for this league, please choose Pay Later as your Payment Method and bring your league fee check for $155 per team to the League Orientation Workshop or to the first league session. Please make your check payable to Main Street Elementary School

A League Orientation Workshop for Coaches and Event Volunteers will be held on Thursday October 6, 2022, the week before the first league session. The workshop will have two parts:

  • League Orientation for Coaches and Event Volunteers: 4:00-5:30 PM
  • Equipment setup and logistics for Event Volunteers: 5:30-7:00 PM

Teams will be invited to submit Digital Engineering Notebooks online and to schedule Remote Judging interviews by December 16, just before the Winter Recess. Remote Judging Interviews will be held during the two weeks before the final league session. Details will be sent to registered teams via email and posted on the Judging Format tab by November 30.

Before your 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 4:30 PM and robots need to pass inspection by 4:45 PM to be included in the Teamwork Challenge match schedule.

At Team Check In for the first league session, teams turn in league fee checks, verify that they have uploaded release forms for all team members, and sign up to provide one volunteer for at least one league session.

At the three Qualifying Sessions, each team will be scheduled in four Teamwork Challenge Qualifying Matches.

At the final Championship session in January, teams participate in up to three Driving Skills Matches and up to three Programming Skills Matches. Robot Skills Challenge Matches are not scheduled. Judges may also request follow-up interviews with some teams. The Championship session concludes with Teamwork Challenge Finals Matches and Awards.

Teams need to provide at least one volunteer for at least one session. If we do not have enough volunteers, we may not be able to complete all scheduled matches. See the Volunteer tab for details.

We will have two competition fields and two practice fields at each session.

Food and beverages may be available for purchase if allowed by LAUSD policy.

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

If any session has to be cancelled, we will offer an additional session.

If league events can’t be held in person indoors, we will explore the possibility of holding the remaining league sessions in person outdoors. If league events can’t be held in person indoors or outdoors, then we will try to convert the remaining league sessions to Live Remote Tournaments. Skills events must be held in person, but it is possible to schedule one team at a time, to hold events outdoors, and to schedule events on weekends in January for better light and temperatures.

If teams are not allowed to meet in person, then teams will be encouraged to try VEXcode VR and to compete with the new VIQC Virtual Skills in VEXcode IQ:
https://www.vexrobotics.com/get-started/vex-vr-skills.

The Event Partner will contact teams if any league sessions must be reschedules or modified. Teams should keep their contact information up to date on RobotEvents.com and include both school and non-school phone numbers.

Refund Policy

Full refunds minus the $5.00 processing fee will be available until one week before the first session. After that, refunds based on special circumstances may be made at the discretion of the Event Partner.
