  • Limit on number of technicians

    1. Is there a 5 person limit to how many team members can run the robot in each match?

    There may be a limit of 2 per match or there may be a limit of 2 at a time tagging in and out. This sometimes depends on the venue. You will have to ask your tournament director.

      We are a fourth year team and the rule has always been that there can be no more than two at the table at one time. But team members can tag out and in during the match. We always tag out one of the operators about half way through the match, and tag someone else in. There are 3 robot matches, so this lets all of our 9 team members be at the table on tournament day.

        At some venues, (such as when the competition tables are on the stage in a small auditorium or lecture hall), there isn't room for both tables and referees and two entire 10-member teams to be on stage all at the same time. In those situations, the tournament director can require the team members who are not at the table to stand off the stage. That can make it difficult for teams to swap which members are at the table during a match.

        I'm not saying it's right or good, I'm just saying it happens. Contact your tournament director to see if there are any limitations at your venue.
