Nothing But Net – 2015-2016 Game

VEX Low cost field alternative

Rather then purchasing a full official VRC competition field, often building the cheaper alternative will be fine for practice and design/build of your robot.  In addition acquiring just one or two of the field elements rather then a full field set of game elements will be enough to figure out the game and design, engineer and test your robot.

Team Registration And Tournament Registration

Teams must be registered in order to participate in any of the tournaments.  Team registration and tournament registration for the VEX  2015-2016 Nothing But Net Season is available here.

Your first step is registering your team.  Multiple teams form the same school will use the same team number with a letter appended for example: team 1: 9889 team 2: 9889B etc

Your second step involved registering your team for tournaments, using the same registration page, selecting a tournament and selecting your team number to compete in that tournament.

Refereeing Resources

It maybe very useful to watch the various referee training videos to get a deeper understanding of the game.  The play list for the referee training videos can be found here:  VEX Nothing But Net Training Videos
