General Info

The PYRS Season Opener is the first Tournament of the BC Competitive Robotics Season. It attracts a broad range of early stage designs and implementations as teams subject their concepts and ideas to the rigours of real world game play.

Experienced coaches reinforce the value of prototyping early and often and the BC Season Opener is a good place to start. 

The BC Season Opener is a qualifying event.
