General Info

NOVA SySTEMic is hosting a two part series on hosting a VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) or VEX IQ Challenge (VIQC). If your organization is interested in hosting a VRC or VIQC during this training is meant for you. We will start from a beginner level to help you plan and host your first event. 

Part 1 will cover the overview of a competition and what you need to think through. We will present a timeline for reserving facilities, reserving/purchasing equipment and recruiting/training key volunteers for the event. This first part is in May so that you can reserve facilities and equipment rentals as needed for your competition before schedules are full. We will cover the planning phase of a tournament and look at the master calendar so event partners can start planning dates with their locations. Please contact your REC Foundation Support Manager to get administrative rights to RobotEvents if you don't have access. Please register for this event at (do not register via RobotEvents unless you have or are creating an account.  Registration through the NOVASTEM link is preferred.  Please complete the registration survey so we can plan a great event that will be beneficial to all!

Part 2 is scheduled for November 2nd and will involve hands-on training. We will review how to setup Tournament Manager, configure and control fields, use tablet scoring and connect an A/V system at your tournament. We utilize three trailers from NOVA SySTEMic that can be reserved and rented for our equipment example. Registration for Part 2 coming soon.
