At League events, teams will go through robot inspection and play 5 matches.

Teams that don’t think their robot is ready, should try to come around 10am. Teams will help each other to get their robots finished and through inspection.

Practice Judging

Is your team interested in a practice Judging Session to help them get ready for the Championships on Feb. 23?  Please sign up for a time slot.  We’re still looking for at least one more adult to be part of the practice judging panel.  Let me know if you have a 2nd coach or parent who would like to volunteer to help.
