General Information

Competition Preparation

This event is sure to be a fast-paced and exciting event. 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. The inspection checklist can be found on the Documents tab.

2. Read the document 120 Things to do before your first VEX Tournament  found on the Documents tab.

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 should thoroughly read the game rules.  Additional rulings and interpretations of the game rules can be found on the Official VEX Forums.

6. Read through the Robot troubleshooting guide found on the Documents tab.

7. Participation Consent & Waiver Form - A waiver is required for all participants. It must be submitted online.

Fields for Event - VEX IQ Only

We would like all organizations bringing 2 or more teams to the event to bring along a VEX IQ field and game objects to use for practice at the event. Please reach out to the event partners if this will not be possible for your organization due to travel circumstances.

Volunteering

This is YOUR Wisconsin VEX State Championship! As such, we are asking YOU to help make this event as great as possible for everyone attending. All teams are required to provide some volunteers to help run the event. Please visit the Volunteer section for more information.

Venue Information

Please note the times on the agenda. Teams will not be allowed into the venue outside of the normal times, unless they are signed up to volunteer with a task such as setup.

The Resch Expo and Resch Center is a large complex and multiple events will be going on throughout the weekend. Please see the Documents section for a venue map with parking and entrance information indicated. Free parking is available in the Lambeau Field Lot 1. If asked when parking indicate that you are with the VEX Robotics Competition.

Please enter through the doors indicated on the map, closest to Hall C (where our event is taking place).

Please hand-carry wheeled carts and toolboxes through the doors into the venue to prevent damage to the thresholds.

PLEASE NOTE: NO FOOD AND DRINK CARRY-INS ARE ALLOWED AT THE EVENT! It is a condition of our contract with the venue that NO food or drink be carried into the venue. There will be multiple concession options available throughout the weekend. It is important that you understand and honor this policy. Please do not bring in snacks, drinks, or meals into the venue. We understand and realize that purchasing concession food is more expensive and not as convenient as bringing in your own food, but that is part of an event like this. Please do not force us to track down teams and individuals choosing to ignore this policy and ask them to remove their food items. Thank you for your cooperation!

Custom Event Apparel 

We will have Fine Designs creating and selling custom event apparel at the event. You may also visit the webstore they have setup either before, during or after the event to have items shipped directly to you:

Volunteer

We Need You!

Many volunteers are needed to make this event a success. The Wisconsin VEX State Tournaments are run to benefit all VEX Teams in Wisconsin. As such we need all VEX Teams in Wisconsin to help make them successful and sustainable events.

There are lots of volunteer roles that need to be filled. There are also four seperate State Tournaments happening the same weekend, and we can use help at all of them. Consider volunteering for one of the events you are not participating in. That will give you more time at your event and help make the other events successful, too!

We expect all teams participating in the Wisconsin VEX State Tournament to provide volunteers. Each volunteer opportunity has been given a number of "Volunteer Points." We are asking each TEAM to cover between 2 and 4 volunteer points for the events. Note that is for each TEAM.  If you are bringin multiple teams (e.g. 123A, 123B, 123C), you should have people signing up to cover spots for the total number of teams you have at the event.

Please keep the following things in mind when signing up volunteers:

  • Volunteers must provide the team number and letter to credit the correct team with the volunteer points
  • We would ask local teams to consider signing up for spots that would be more difficult for teams travelling a distance to cover, such as setup and cleanup tasks
  • Teams that fail to signup for volunteer spots will be assigned volunteer tasks
  • If you are a VRC team, you may sign up to help at the VEX IQ event, and if you are a VEX IQ team, you may sign up to help at the VRC event. Then you won't miss any of the action at your event!

Judges and Referees

Volunteers to serve as Judges and Referees are also needed for all events. No experience is necessary to be a Judge or a Referee, but those with experience are encouraged to volunteer. These rolls mostly require an all-day commitment. The tournament can assist with hotel lodging for judge and referee volunteers that need it. Coaches and VEX alumni are encouraged to serve as judges for events that they do not have teams participating in. This is a great opportunity to learn how to help your teams improve as well as help teams in other programs. Volunteering as a judge or a referee will cover the entire volunteer responsibility for a team.

Age Requirements for Judges and Referees

  • Judges for VRC must be adults. High school students 16 years or older can sign up to judge at the VEX IQ competition.
  • Referees/scorekeepers must be at least 15 years old

Emergency/Bad Weather Policy
