Competition Preparation

This event is sure to be fast-paced and exciting. All teams should come prepared for competition. Some great tips are available in the document “101 Things I Wish I’d Known Before My First VEX Tournament.”

Here are a few steps that every team should take to ensure they are ready.

  1. Review rules and run through the inspection checklist (see Documents tab).  Review closely the rules for using VEX V5 equipment or VEX Cortex equipment.  Note also the rules on robot sizing.  The sizing rules can cause your team a lot of work early in the day if not closely followed.

  2. Check the official VEX forums for rule updates and changes

  3. Carefully read all of the information contained in the tournament posting on RobotEvents.com

  4. Review the descriptions and criteria for the awards being given during this tournament

  5. Remember that safety comes first, please don't bring tools that pose a safety risk to your team, or others nearby. Also, remember no grinding or other actions that create sparks inside the school building. Bring safety glasses for everyone!

  6. Understand how the game will be played. VEX participants are more than welcome to watch the referee training videos before they attend a tournament.

  7. Ensure that you have the latest version of firmware.

  8. Read through the robot troubleshooting guide and follow the directions about setting up your robot during the competition. Following the directions will avoid issues with the robots and the controllers.

  9. Cell phones and other devices must have WIFI disabled during the event to avoid interference with the competing teams.
