General Info

This is our first attempt at hosting a league. We will meet in the classroom on the dates listed. Skills will be offered at each session and then we will have 3-4 rounds of qualifications.

Competition Preparation:

This event is sure to be fast-paced and exciting. All teams should come prepared for competition. Here are a few steps that every team should take to ensure that they are prepared.

1. Review the rules and run through the inspection checklist about a week before the competition so that there is ample time for adjustments.

2. Check the official VEX forums for rule updates and changes.

3. Pack for the event the day before the day of departure. Here are a few items that you don't want to forget:

  • Goggles/Safety Glasses
  • Spare parts & tools
  • Batteries and chargers
  • Programming cable
  • Power strip
  • Laptop computer
  • Engineering notebook (if you have one, helpful for Judges, Design and Excellence Awards )
  • Banners and other decorations for your team pit
  • Giveaways if you have them

4. Remember that safety comes first, please don't bring tools that pose a safety risk to your team, or others nearby as the venue is a very tight fit. Also, remember no grinding or other actions that create sparks.

5. Understand how the game will be played. VEX participants are more than welcome to watch the referee training videos before they attend a tournament.

6. Read through the Robot troubleshooting guide.

7. To ensure that you have the latest version of firmware make sure that you have the latest update of your programming software.

8. Participation and Consent Form - A completed form for all participants must be submitted online. 

Concessions - There is a concessions stand planned for 9:00-3:30. There are also many food choices within a short drive.
