Pre-season (June – December)

Meeting every Wednesday from 3pm to 8pm at Smithfield-Selma High School. This includes over summer break. We also attend and host many outreach events, showcasing our robot and team. Some of these events are required for all team members to attend.

Competitive Season (January – May)

The season starts in early January, where the game is revealed and we start designing the robot. The kickoff event is mandatory for all team members.

Meetings are now on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, all being from 3pm to 8pm. We occasionally meet on Saturday as well.

Starting in March, after a month or two of building the robot, competitions start. We have 2-3 regional competitions a season, all being multiple days. If we score high enough in regionals, we will move on to the state competition, usually taking place in late March or early April. If we score high enough in states, we move on to worlds, taking place in Texas in April.

Throughout the season, we still continue to attend and host outreach events, though they aren’t as prevalent as they were in the pre-season.

We end the year in May with a small celebration of our accomplishments, ending the season.
