What’s the game this year?

This year’s game is CRESCENDO! Robots retrieve Notes from Sources across the field and score them in their alliance’s Amp and Speaker. Teams also get points for climbing on their alliance’s Stage.

Match Periods

During the first 15 seconds of the match, robots drive autonomously without any human input. Amp and Speaker points are worth more during the autonomous period. Next, drivers take control and the teleoperated period starts. This period lasts for 2 minutes and 15 seconds until the end of the match.

Can friends and family attend in person?

Yes! If you’re able to attend, we’d highly recommend it. It’s a great experience!

When and where should I go?

The competition takes place over three days – March 21st, 22nd, and 23rd. Here’s a general overview of what happens each day:
  • Thursday – Practice Day. This is the day teams adjust to playing on an official field. None of the matches count for official ranking.
  • Friday – Qualifiers. This day starts qualification matches. The competition heats up as teams start earning Ranking Points!
  • Saturday – Playoffs. The first few hours of the day finish up qualifiers. Then, playoff matches begin!
If you’re able to, you are welcome to attend all three days! However, if you pick one day to attend, we would recommend Saturday. Click here for the official event schedule.
