General Information

News & General Information 

Event Qualification

All RoboCup Junior Victoria (RCJV) events are open entry, meaning any teams can enter any and all events, without prior experience or finals placement in a previous events. Whilst we do strongly encourage teams to attend Regional Event to gain experience, this is in no way required for entry into the State event, or even the Australia Open (Nationals).

Entry Volume Management
Challenges/Divisions listed for all events will run subject to a minimum of five entries in that challenge/division. In the event of less than five entries, or for other operational and/or management reasons, divisions may be merged and combined. Conversely, in the event there are too many entries for a particular event, or challenge/division at a event (as dictated by event, challenge/division and/or venue capacity and/or health and saftey requirements), organisations with the most entries may be asked to select their teams best prepared to attend the event. This is most likely to occur at the Victorian State or Melbourne Regional events. Mentors from any organisations affected will be contacted after close of entries.

Event Entry Fees
Entry fee amounts for each event is shown in the event information on the Vic Events page (linked from from the Event Calendar above).

Rule Modifications
Please note that with the introduction of Riley Rover Rescue, Max’s Mini Maze and Simple Simon Soccer into the National Rules, the Victorian rule documents and rule modifications have now been retired.

Miscellaneous
Important documents including the mandatory Participation Deed and Mentor Declaration (all events) can be found at the bottom of this page. Please note that it is not permissible for forms to be altered in any way. Mentors are reminded that it is their responsibility to ensure the saftey of their students, themselves, anybody associated with them and any associated property at any and all events (including but not limited to eventsand workshops) and complete/implement any risk assessments or child safe policies that might be required.

From time to time we receive requests to participate in risk assessment processes/programs or provide risk assessment or other policy documents. Whilst we will make best effort to participate in these processes/programs or supply these documents, please note due to our Volunteer run nature, this may not be possible. Mentors are encouraged to conduct their own risk assessment for attending events, based on the information we make available online. 

Workshops and Professional Development

Information regarding workshop and professional development sessions can be found on the Vic Workshops page, linked to from the Event Calendar above.
