Welcome to the Battle at the Bridge (High School Division) hosted by Woodbridge Senior High School. We are looking forward to hosting you and your teams in what promises to be an amazing event with teams from all over Virginia.  See the agenda tab for tentative schedule.  You will receive a full information packet 2 weeks before the event.  We anticipate that each team will have six competition rounds for this event.

For our friends that have never competed here before,  Woodbridge Senior High School Robotics is sponsoring and competing in the event.  Thanks to the amazing effort put in by parents, teachers, and county wide volunteers, we are able to host a double division event with 50 HS and 50 MS teams so that we can have a full tournament event for everyone with about 6 to 7 matches.  We will play in the main gym with HS on one side and MS on the other so there will always be a match or two in play.  HS pits will be in our auxilary gyms above the main floor and MS will be in our cafeteria.  As always concessions will be available and we will be working with local merchants to arrange pre-order lunches for your teams.  All registered teams will receive an information email will all details and a welcome packet upon checking.

This event is usually open for all to attend.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email Denyse Carroll ([email protected]) or Carlos Castro ([email protected]).

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy

Prince William County Schools has final say over all weather related delays and closings.  In the unlikely event that weather should cancel the use of the building and the event, refunds will be issued to teams that have paid prior to arrival.  Please allow 6 to 8 weeks for refunds to be mailed to your officially registered address.

In the event of a weather related delayed opening, the tournament will run but with a modified schedule.  We understand that teams may not be able to alter their travel plans.  Unfortunately, no refunds will be issued for no shows to a delayed start event.  We will do all that is humanly possible to run a tournament with enough qualifying matches and a full elimination round and provide judging for awarded trophies.

Refund and Payment Policies

If the Event Partner cancels/postpones the event: 

  • In the unlikely event that weather should cancel the use of the building and the event, refunds will be issued to teams that have paid prior to arrival minus the $5 RECF adminstrative fees.  Due to the nature of school accounting, the refunds may take 6 to 8 weeks to process.

If a Coach/Mentor completes registration for the event then chooses to withdraw or not attend: 

  • There will be no refund for a cancelling team unless another team is able to take the open spot. 

All teams will have to submit payment or have made arrangements by December 1, 2023.  If not paid for by that date, your team will be moved to the wait list to make room for other teams.  Please contact us in case you are having an issue with payment.
