General Info

The VRC High School State Championship is a two day event in Doswell, VA at the Meadow Event Park. Teams must qualify for the tournament by participating in a regional event by February 18th, 2024.  Teams qualify by winning awards at a local tournament or by invitation based on the highest skills scores posted in Virginia during the season. 

As in previous years, teams will be in roughly a 10'x10' booth with pipe and drape, a table, 2 chairs, and a pit sign in the west half of the venue.  Skills challenges, practice fields, and matches will take place in the east half of the venue.  Teams will have 8 matches and 3 attempts at each skills challenge (driving and programming).  Parking is available on the west side of the venue.
