Due to limited space each school can only register a maximum of two teams and a team is a maximum of 6 cadets or students.  In addition, all JROTC teams must consist of a majority of JROTC cadets. For example if you have a team of 6, at least 3-4 members must be JROTC.  If you are a part of the MCPSS JROTC league there is no event registration fee; however, please ensure you complete the consent forms. If you are not a part of the MCPSS JROTC league there is a Registration fee of $75 per team per event.  If you are behind on payment you cannot proceed to the next competition until you settle your debt.  You can pay in cash, check or money order and make it out to Murphy High School JROTC during the check-in process at the event. In addition, please ensure you have added LTC Chevelle Thomas as an alternate POC on the https://www.robotevents.com/ website and your team has completed the consent forms prior to the competition. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  

Thank you and looking forward to seeing you Thursday, 25 January 2024 for MCPSS VEX Robotics Championship.
