Health and Safety Policies

Health and Safety Policies

NOTE: Safety information will be updated in the early fall to reflect the current requirements for schools in our area.

COVID Information

Face Coverings
Face coverings will be optional for everyone, everywhere throughout the tournament, in the stands, pits, and at the fields.

Hand Sanitizer
Hand sanitizer will be available at various locations at the tournament venue. Teams and spectators are encouraged to bring their own sanitizer as well. Please use hand sanitizer frequently throughout the day particularly after leaving the competition field.

Concessions will be available.

Spectators are allowed at this time, if that changes the team coaches will be notified.

Team Health
Please monitor the health of your team. We trust that everyone keeps their teams informed of their health as related to COVID infection. Anyone with potential COVID symptoms or possible COVID exposure should not attend the tournament.

Pit Tables
We will provide extra space between tables in the pit area and the walking areas from the pits to the competition field. We prefer multiple teams from the same organization so that organizations can have pit tables in social groupings. We will provide enough space so that there is proper spacing between team tables and a larger spacing between organizations. Individual teams will be grouped together at one table.

Competition Fields
We will be using two competition fields, one skills field, and one practice field. Robots and drivers will need to arrive ready to compete. 

Changing Conditions
We might need to make adjustments to our event due to local and state COVID guidelines.  The team coaches will be notified of any changes as we get closer to the event.

Judging Format

All Judging at this event will be done in person on the day of the event.  Team interviews will be conducted in the pits.  Judges will be in the stands to view matches and watch Skills.

Teams should bring a physical copy of their notebook to submit to the judges.
