Becoming an Event Partner and hosting your own VEX competitions is a step that many coaches and mentors may wish to take. In addition to giving local teams an opportunity to compete, hosting a competition can also become an important component to the sustainability and growth of your program.
The purpose of this roughly 90-minute training is to provide an overview of the role of an Event Partner, how to get started planning a competition, the steps involved for posting an event, and a quick overview of the VEX Tournament Manager software. This presentation is geared for those thinking about hosting an event for the first time, or folks that may have some experience as an EP but are looking for a refresher webinar.
Before the meeting, attendees are advised to please check over the EP Guide, found here, and you may also wish to download VEX Tournament Manager, found here. The EP guide will give you an overview of the Event Partner role and responsibilities, and VEX Tournament Manager is the software used to manage a competition. Another resources you may which to look into is the EP Resources presentation from the REC Summit earlier in the summer. This presentation has a number of direct links to resources as well.
This workshop will contain information that applies to VEX U and VEX Robotic Competition,as well as VEX IQ Challenge programs.
A link to the meeting will be sent to participants shortly before the start of the presentation.
This workshop will run from 6:30pm-8:00pm EST. We will start by going over the responsibilities of an Event Partner and available resources, then go over RobotEvents and Tournament Manager - all the while answering any questions folks have as they come up.
