Competition Preparation

This event is sure to be a fast-paced and exciting event. All teams should come prepared for competition. Here are a few steps that every team should take to ensure that they are prepared.

1. Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time for adjustments.

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

3. Pack for the event the day before the day of departure. 
Here are a few items that you don't want to forget.

  • Goggles/Safety Glasses

  • Spare parts & tools

  • Batteries and chargers

  • Programming cable

  • Power strip

  • Laptop computer

  • Engineering notebook (if you have one, helpful for Judges, Design and Excellence Awards )

  • Banners and other decorations for your team pit

  • Giveaways if you have them

4. Remember that safety comes first, please don't bring tools that pose a safety risk to your team, or others nearby as the venue is a very tight fit. Also, remember no grinding of parts or other actions that create sparks will be allowed in the pit.  A designated area will be made available to teams for alterations.

 

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

6. Participation and Consent Form - A completed form for all participants must be turned in during check-in. It is highly reccomended that you take care of this online before attending your first tournament, then you won't need to take a form to any future tournaments.
