General Info

Welcome to the San Diego 1st Annual Last Chance Invitational. We are excited to provide a final qualification opportunity late into the VRC Over Under season. This is a qualifier event for teams that have not qualified for California State Championships.

Teams must be paid one month before the event. Teams not paid at this time may be dropped at the event partner's discretion to allow teams in from the wait list.

Judging interviews will be conducted in-person the day of the event. 

A skills field will be available at the event. Each team will have 3 drivers runs and 3 autonomous runs during the time that qualification matches are being run. The event partner will determine when the skills field will be closing.

Please read/review the Code of Conduct Policy provided by the REC. Any individual or team not upholding these behavior or ethical standards could be asked to leave the event if issues arise. No refunds are to be given if this occurs.

Concessions will be available at the event. Sales from concessions directly supports the Sweetwater Union High School District Robotics League program and will be greatly appreciated.
