News & General Information
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 show in the event information on the Vic Events page (linked from from the Event Calendar above).
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.
