General Info

Welcome

Welcome to the Fourth Annual San Diego Fall Middle School Only VEX Robotics Tournament. We are proud to host this years Challange "Spin Up". We look forward to seeing new teams and old friends. Come and enjoy a day of fun and friendly competition as teams work together to garner a spot to advance to the California State Championships in March 2023.

On Site Food and Concessions

If COVID protocols allow, we plan on having a full concession stand available.

We are currently awaiting what COVID protocols will be in place regarding food in the Robotics Arena. We will keep you informed as soon as we can.

It is our goal to keep our participants safe and provide the best possible environment. We highly recommend that students no matter what age do not leave the campus once on site. We try to provide snacks and lunch at a reasonable cost to help with that. We will send you a menu of what will be available at our concessions stand so that you can plan accordingly.

Check-In, Payment, and Refunds

Teams that have not checked in 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the qualifying matches will be dropped from the roster so that the match list may be run.

Teams that are running late must contact the event partner prior to this cut off if they do not wish to be dropped. No Refunds will be given unless a Waiting List team fills your spot. There will be a $5.00 charge if you paid through RECF.

Please note that teams that have not paid their event registration one month prior to the event may be dropped from the event at the Event Partners discretion.

Swapping or Changing of Teams

Please make sure you have registered the correct team for an event. Due to the  REC policy of changing teams that are registered for an event, there will not be any changing of one team to another once a team is registered. If you need to withdraw a team from an event please notify the EP. The refund policy stated above will be in effect.

Waiting List

A Waiting List will be maintained, to replace possible withdrawals. Teams can add themselves to the Waiting List or contact Joe Amaro at joseph.amaro@sweetwaterschools.org, or jamaro@cox.net,  if any openings are available two weeks prior to the event, Waiting List teams will be notified to see if they are still interested.

Engineering Notebooks

The Engineering Notebook for the Excellence and Design awards will be turned in at check-in and returned after Alliance selection.

Knowing the sacrifice and resource commitment that every team experiences, we will make every effort to adhere to the posted agenda.
To help to do so, the Head Referee will make every effort to start matches on time, and may start without a team in place.
We ask that your teams carefully review the match lists and allow time to meet and strategize with their alliances, and Queue in a timely manner, and get to the field at the proper time.
