General Info

This is open to any JROTC VRC Team registered on 

This is a remote event, so you compete from the comfort and safety of your school, classroom, living room, basement, or even a local park.  Wherever you can set up a field! 

What do I need to participate in this event?

To be ready for this event, there is not much you will need to do other than build a robot and practice.

Verify you will have access to the following:

  • VEX VRC Field and 2022-2023 VEX Robotics Competition Spin Up Game Elements
  • A device with a camera that can capture your skills runs
  • VEX VRC Robot and Controller
  • A device with the VEX HUB App to use the timer
  • A device with the Scoring App or printed paper scorecards

How will this work?

Following the rules about Robot skills in the Spin Up Game manual and Appendix B - Skills Challenge (Page 95).  

  • Matches should follow a standard procedure
    1. Robot Inspection is done by the Team, showing on video, the inspection sheet signed and completed. Measurements must be done using a measuring device such as a Robot Sizing Tool or a tape measure.
    2. Teams pair the Controller to the Robot.
    3. The Team shows on video a close-up view of the Starting Position to provide video evidence that the Robot is in a legal starting position.
    4. The Team says out loud and writes on paper or whiteboard if they are attempting a Programming Skills Match or Driving Skills Match.
    5. The Team starts a Match when the clock begins.
    6. After the Match, the Team must move the camera to each of the Goals saying out loud what counts as scored and records onto an official referee scoresheet.
    7. The scoresheet is then shown clearly on video for a minimum of 10 seconds. While the scoresheet is being recorded, Teams can reset the field for the next Match.
    8. The Team can then repeat steps 3-8 for their remaining allotment of Matches, i.e. maximum of 3 Programming Skills Matches and 3 Driving Skills Matches, one after another
