General Info

Event is located in the gymnasium at Building SE16


This event is designated as a PYRS Last Chance tournament. Last chance tournaments are intended for teams who have not qualified for the BC Mainland Provincial Championship. This designation is a coaches agreement between coaches in PYRS/Lower Mainland. This hopefully gives all teams an opportunity to compete and qualify for the provincials. Registration opens late in the season to curb early registration. Please respect the agreement and withdraw if your team has qualified. If space permits, we may allow qualified teams. Thank you!

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

Teams will be notified at their registered email address in the event of a schedule disruption, change, or cancellation.

Refund and Payment Policies

Teams can cancel with 1 week notice. Teams that cancel with less than 1 week notice, will be billed for the full cost of the event if the waitlist is exhausted and your spot is empty. If there a long waitlist there is less likely to be a charge. 

Holding spots is discouraged. However, under limited special circumstances PYRS will absorb the loss revenue. This is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. 



Judging Format

In-Person Judging - The Team Interviews and Engineering Notebooks will be judged in-person the day of the event. Teams should bring a physical copy of their notebook to submit to the judges.
