General Info

Congratulations on qualifying for the California Region 2 VRC Middle School Regional Championship!

 

Here is a doc with detailed information about this event

We strive to conduct the event in a safe manner. Please ensure you have read the Health and Safety Policies, for your own safety and others at the event.

***You may register at any site that has space available for the state championship event you qualified for - please read the entire event posting before registering.***

Choose wisely if this is the event you are selecting. Once you register you will NOT be able to move to a different city. You will NOT be refunded your fee and teams will be moved to the wait list if they have not completed the payment by February 26, 2022. It is your responsibility to make sure that the payments have been processed in time. We will use the visible record of payment on robotevents.com to make the determination.

Please note: all events will receive world championship award bids based on the REC Foundation Qualifying Criteria. 

Qualifying to this Event:

There are three ways for teams to qualify to Championship events: 

  • Qualifying Award: Winning a qualifying award at an official event in the team’s Event Region. 
  • Robot Skills Ranking: If the Championship event in the team’s region is not filled to capacity through qualifying awards, teams may qualify through the World Skills Standings sorted for the Event Region and by grade level. Teams invited through Robot Skills Challenge Rankings are invited in ranked order after the results of the last qualifying event in the region have been posted. Scores earned after this date will not be used to qualify teams to their Championship. 
  • Waitlist: If there is remaining capacity due to teams not accepting the invite after the Robot Skills Rankings invites have been issued, the capacity will either be lowered, and the event will be closed, or teams will be invited from the waitlist. This will be decided by the REC Foundation Manager.

Grade Level: Middle School

Skills Challenge Offered: Yes

Judging Format: All In-Person Judging
