General Info

Becoming an Event Partner and hosting your own VEX competitions is a step that many coaches and mentors may wish to take - and is one that may be easier than you think! 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 1 hour 15-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 EPs and their key volunteers that may have some experience as an EP but are looking for a refresher webinar. There will be time at the end of the presentation for any questions attendees may have about event management or Tournament Manager.

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 last summer. This presentation has a number of direct links to resources as well.

This workshop will contain information that applies to VEX U. VRC, and VIQC programs. If there are others you know of who may be interested in this training, please share this RobotEvents posting with them and ask they to register.

A link to the meeting will be sent to participants shortly before the start of the presentation. This presentation will not be recorded.
