General Info

Doors will open at 7:30 for sign-in and set-up of your pits table. Please make sure your coach/mentor has all of the required documents for each team member. And, don’t forget your safety glasses.

We want to make this event, one to remember for the students, teachers, mentors, and parents. Bring your A-game as the competition will be fierce, but only on the field. Our hope is that all teams will arrive with and maintain a cooperative spirit. The VEX culture is founded on shared learning. Let’s make sure we live this culture by always sharing; ideas, tools, parts, and advice, and by assisting each other in every way possible.

Reminders:

  • Please label everything you bring to the tournament. 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.
  • Be sure to review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time for adjustments. The inspection checklist can be found here
  • Check the official VEX forums for rule updates and changes.
  • 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.
  • Ensure that you have the latest version of the VRC firmware.
  • All participants are expected to complete the participant release form. (also available in Spanish).

From our perspective, every student participating, on a Saturday, after many hours of “fun work”, is undoubtedly a winner. The knowledge and experience gained will last a lifetime, and hopefully will motivate them to pursue exciting and rewarding career opportunities.

Robotics, the only school sport where every student can go pro.
