* Events may run ahead or behind schedule.

Field Inspection Checklist

At this point in the season, some teams may feel like they haven’t done enough or they aren’t ready for Championships. Don’t let your team skip the competition. They may be surprised to realize how much they’ve accomplished. Other teams will help your students if the robot isn’t ready for inspection.

Championship Matches
All teams will play 5 matches in the morning and early afternoon. Then the teams will be ranked. The top four teams will be the Captains and get to choose their alliance partners for the Elimination Rounds. After the Elimination Rounds are played, it will be time for the Awards Ceremonies.

More info will be available soon
