General Info

This event will have four to five matches per team over a total of four league nights, and will culminate with the League Tournament.  The league will be a State Qualifier for the Tournament Champions and the Excellence Award winners.  If there enough league members who participate in at least 16 matches, then the Design Award winner may also be eligible to qualify for the State Tournament.

For all rules--How to run a team, do your engineering notebook and steps to build your robot look at the VEX Robotics website.

1. Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before each league night, so that there is ample time for adjustments. The inspection checklist for the CORTEX can be found here and for V5 it is here.

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 )
* Banners and other decorations for your team pit
* Giveaways if you have them

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. The referee training videos should be uploaded by September, but the referee guide is here.

10. A robot troubleshooting flow chart can be found here.

11. Ensure that you have the latest version of firmware.
