General Info

Congratulations on qualifying for the VRC California Region 2 High School Championship!

*** You may register at any Region 2 High School Championship site that has space available.  But choose wisely.  Once you register you will NOT be able to move to a different city and you will NOT be refunded your fee. ***

Teams will be moved to the waitlist if they have not completed payment by Mar 2, 2024.  It is your responsibility to make sure that the payment has been processed in time.  We will use the visible record of payment on Robot Events to make the determination.

Region 2 High School Championship at Merrill F West High School

West High School in Tracy is easily accessible from the Central Valley and Bay Area, located in the triangle of Interstates 205, 510, and 5.  

Each team will have a pit table in our Cafeteria.  We will have 3 playing fields and 2 skills fields next door in the Gym, and 3 practice fields in the Cafeteria.

Qualifying to this Event:

There are three ways for teams to qualify to Championship events: 

  • Qualifying Award: Winning a qualifying award at an official event in the team’s Event Region. 
  • Robot Skills Ranking: If the Championship event in the team’s region is not filled to capacity through qualifying awards, teams may qualify through the World Skills Standings sorted for the Event Region and by grade level. Teams invited through Robot Skills Challenge Rankings are invited in ranked order after the results of the last qualifying event in the region have been posted. Scores earned after this date will not be used to qualify teams to their Championship. 
  • Waitlist: If there is remaining capacity due to teams not accepting the invite after the Robot Skills Rankings invites have been issued, the capacity will either be lowered, and the event will be closed, or teams will be invited from the waitlist. This will be decided by the REC Foundation Manager.
