General Info

Harvard-Westlake is excited to host the 2021 Harvard-Westlake Challenge Middle School Only event, a VEX Tipping Point Tournament. Although this is a middle school-only event, the tournament will take place at our UPPER SCHOOL CAMPUS on Coldwater Canyon.  On-site parking is free.

The event will be open to 30 middle schools. Winning specific awards at this event will qualify teams to attend the California State Championship. This event will be limited to five teams per organization. Once the event is full, a waiting list will be created for teams who were unable to register. This waiting list will also be available for you to sign up additional teams, but precedence will be given to schools/organizations that are not yet registered. If you have any questions, please feel free to email the Event Partner, Tripp Reed at

Registration will begin at 8:00 am.
