General Info

The Fox Valley VRC League is designed to give teams many opportunities to compete and improve throughout the season. We will compete on Thursday nights following the schedule below.

  • Fill out the form found here for when your teams will compete: https://goo.gl/forms/nVHXROSr1vpX907i2
  • Teams need to compete in at least 60% of the matches to be ranked for alliance selection. That means competing in 5 of the 8 league play nights. Due to the large number of teams in league this year, once a team reaches 5 nights of competition, we reserve the right to restrict them from playing based on the number of teams that show up for a night.
  • Due to the large number of teams, some nights will be more crowded than others. We have team workspaces available, but teams will need to double up (or more) to allow for space for all teams. Try to only bring the items you need for league night to save space.
  • We can always use more volunteers to help with running the league night sessions. Jobs needed include: Check-in/Inspection, Referee, Score Keeper, TM Operator, and Announcer. If you or another coach or a parent is willing, please step up when asked, or better yet, come and offer your service!
  • The UW Fox Engineering Club has a concession stand available at the league nights that usually includes items like popcorn, pizza and soda. NOTE: No Concessions will be available on November 1
  • We are guests of UW Platteville/UW Fox Valley and are very appreciative of the space they allow us to use. Please make sure to respect the area and not let your students disturb equipment or material that is also in the space. Please also help with cleaning up at the end of each night to keep the space as neat as possible.

The schedule is as follows:

10/24/19 Menasha UW-FV Platteville Engr. Bldg. Thursday division league play
11/7/19 Menasha UW-FV Platteville Engr. Bldg. Thursday division league play
11/21/19 Menasha UW-FV Platteville Engr. Bldg. Thursday division league play

State Qualifying Spot Assignments for Wisconsin VRC Events:

       Blended &       Only
Teams      VRC/HS    MS/VRC    
    24+          7        7
    32+         10        7
    56+         11        7  

 

If 10 or more teams are registered at each level of a blended event (Middle School and High School) the Excellence Award must be offered at each level. The total number of state qualifying spots will increase by one.

State Qualifying Spots are initially assigned based on the capacity of the event. After registration closes, and before the event, spots may be adjusted to reflect the number of teams registered for the event according to the table above. Qualifying Spots are assigned by the REC Foundation. The assignments are calculated based on the number of spots available for State Championship, the number and size of qualfying events in the State, and the historical double-qualification rates for the State. Questions on State Qualifying spot assignments may be directed to your REC Foundation Regional Support Manager Bill Ryno by email at: bill_ryno@roboticseducation.org. 

Elimination Brackets for Wisconsin VRC Events:

Up to 32 teams at an event will compete in the Elimination Rounds; all teams at an event are elibible for Alliance Selection, not just the top 32-ranked teams. If there are an odd number of teams, unfortunately the last team will not be able to compete in the Elimination Rounds. Refer to the Documents tab for a PDF of the 16-alliance elimination bracket. If an event has fewer than 16 alliances, the highest-seed alliances receive a bye. The Tournament Manager software automatically calculates the elimination brackets for the number of alliances competing. 

Following the Qualifying Criteria, Finals Alliances are 2 teams. Finals matches are determined by the winner of one match. Ties will be replayed until a winner is determined. Event Partners may run elimination brackets in any legal configuration they wish, but are encouraged to follow the standard for the State. Questions on Elimination Brackets may be directed to your REC Foundation Regional Support Manager Bill Ryno by email at: bill_ryno@roboticseducation.org.
