Orientation

Every new member is provided orientation to the club, our equipment, and our programs by staff. We also set expectations, go over the code of conduct, and answer any questions they might have. Orientation may be one-on-one or in a small group setting, depending on the number of new members at any given time.

Weekly Instruction & Workshop Sessions

RoboKai members will have 1-2 hours of club time each week, depending on their membership options. Sessions include workshop time with teams, practice time during tournament season, and hands-on instruction in mechanical engineering, coding, design, mathematics, geometry, physics, and more. The content each week will be member driven depending on where we're at in the competition season, with some sessions devoted more to instruction and others devoted more to building and practicing. Our goal is for every member is to have fun, stay engaged, and come away with a deeper understanding of STEM subjects than when they started.

Leagues & Teams

League members will get extra club time each week and be assigned to teams of up to 4 members that will compete in the VEX IQ Challenge. RoboKai will handle team registration and provide coaching at tournaments. Leagues are open to all members between the ages of 8-14, and teams are formed according to age groups, with a U12 division and a U15 division. We offer special discounts for siblings or friends who will be on the same team.

Scrimmages & Challenges

RoboKai will host scrimmage matches & in-house challenges open to both regular members and League teams. Scrimmages and challenges will be held on weeknights. We may hold more or fewer scrimmages depending on the needs of the teams. The main purpose of scrimmage matches is to test mechanisms, refine scoring strategies, practice routes, and develop autonomous programs. In-house challenges are designed to reinforce engineering and programming skills. They are also a good way for new members to test the waters on the competition experience before committing to a team.

VEX IQ Tournaments

VEX IQ is a year-long international program, which begins with the announcement of the season's challenge each April at the World Championships. In Virginia, most tournaments run between October and March, with the rest of the season devoted to planning, building, programming, developing a strategy with your team, and practicing. Tournaments are typically scheduled on Saturdays. Tournament winners may qualify for the State Championships, which can lead to the World Championships. Tournament participants also have the excitement of being ranked against thousands of other teams from all over the world.
