General Info

Come join us as we host our 4th Annual VEX Robotics Qualifier. (New location!)  We will have concessions available as well as a pre-order pizza option for teams.

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

4. 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 )

5. Be sure to read 101 Things You Should Know Before Your First VEX Tournament.

6. Review the descriptions and criteria for the awards that are being given during the tournament.

7. Prep for your interviews with the judges. Check the awards tab to see what awards will be given during the tournament.

8. 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 or other actions that create sparks.

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

10. Read through the Robot Troubleshooting guide

Health and Safety Policies

 

With the rise in COVID cases in our area, it is necessary to adjust our policies for the safety of the students, staff, and volunteers. We have heard of other large events canceled in the area, but we plan to move forward with a few changes. We will be implementing the following COVID safety guidelines. 

Masks are Required for everyone in attendance regardless of vaccination status. Masks must be on and worn correctly all day except when participants are actively eating and drinking.

Between student team members, coaches, and volunteers, we are expecting 500 people to attend the event. We have made the difficult decision to not allow spectators at this event. All team members and up to 2 coaches/mentors per team are permitted to attend. We are unable to provide a livestream, but students are welcome to record their matches and/or stream their own video.

Please ask everyone attending to do a self check including taking their temperature. If anyone is feeling ill, exhibiting symptoms or has been exposed to COVID and is subject to quarantine, they should not attend.

Hand sanitizer will be available in many locations and we encourage frequent use.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in making this event as safe as possible for everyone.
