General Info

This is the third Kalahari Classic VEX competition! This should be a fun and challenging event for all.


Fun because you have access to the largest indoor water-park within the United States of America. Challenging because we aim to bring the best of the best VEX Robotics teams together from Ohio and the surrounding states so we can better prepare our students for the future. We had teams from four States last year and hope to add additional States this year. World Spots to be announced. The event is setup similar to VEX World's for a great student experience! 

Kalahari provides great competition for all. We had nine winners at Worlds that won awards at Kalahari this year. We are setting the bar high and the students are responding!!

Please note a change to the registration, inspections and skills because of the Signature Event Status. This is a one day event held on Thursday January 16th. Registration, inspections and skills will be avaibable Wednesday 14th from 6 pm until 9 pm. We encourage you to take advantage of the Wednesday night skills oppurtunity. We will have registration and inspection on Thursday morning from 7.30 - 8.30 am. Skills will also be avaible on a limited basis from 10 am until 1 pm.
