General Info

We invite you to attend the 2024 California Region 1 VRC Championship!

This is a VEX World Championship Qualify event. It is only open to teams that qualify. There are three ways for teams to qualify to an Event Region Championship: 

  • Qualifying Award - Winning a qualifying award at an official event in the team’s Event Region. 
  • Robot Skills Ranking - If the Event Region Championship in an Event 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 the World Skills Standings  are invited in ranked order after the results of the last qualifying event in the Event 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 a formal invitation, the Event Region Championship capacity may be lowered or teams may be invited from the Waitlist. This will be decided by the REC Foundation Manager.

This is an In person VRC Over Under Tournament. We wil have:

  • 3 Competition Fields
  • 1 Skills Field
  • 1 Practice Field
  • Individual tables for pits
  • Assigned charging points for batteries.
  • Bathrooms and Water located in the Lincoln Center
