Only one team from each school may attend. If your school has been fielding multiple VRC teams during the RECF season, you can combine all your school's students and robots into a single WVSSAC Robotics team.

Format & Event Notes

WVSSAC Robotics teams will play a modified version of the VRC Over Under game with some modifications. Detailed rules are available on this page.

New this season:  All matches will be played "1 vs. 1", with each team using up to two robots in each match. Although all teams are encouraged to bring at least two robots to the event, teams with a single robot can also participate. Please consult the rules for full details.

The Robot Skills Challenge and judged awards will be offered alongside head-to-head matches. The list of judged awards has not yet been finalized.

Head-to-head fields will use the metal field perimeter (278-1501) on 24" risers. Skills challenge and practice fields will use the portable field perimeter (276-8242) on the floor.
