VEX Robotics


The TSA VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) is provided in partnership with TSA and VEX. In a normal year, the game field and challenge are the same each year as the current VEX field and challenge, but qualifying is based solely on skills rankings, and finals play is one-on-one, rather than alliances. Teams are allowed to get their runs in in a specified period of time, to allow students to compete in other TSA competitive events also.

For 2021-22, Washington State VEX teams will be required to meet the January deadline (see below) to be able to compete in March for State.


Event will be run on site at the State Conference
