Below is a brief description of each of tournament round.

Precision Seeding Rounds

On day two of the conference, teams compete unopposed on the game board as their robots attempt to score as many points as they can. The seeding rounds are a great opportunity for teams to show what their robots can really do.

Head-to-Head Double Elimination

The action heats up on day four as teams go head-to-head in the double elimination rounds. Robots from two different teams compete on the game board simultaneously in an effort to score as many points as possible, but also to keep their opponent from scoring. It's all in good fun since Botball tournaments are designed to be exciting and educational, but non-destructive.

Cooperative Alliance Matches

The tournament isn't over for teams that are eliminated from the double elimination rounds! Once a team is eliminated, they have the opportunity to compete in the alliance matches. Alliance matches pair teams from different schools and regions to compete cooperatively in an effort to score as many points as possible with robots from both teams. Alliance matches offer students the chance to continue in the competition and get to know people from different regions - sometimes from different countries!
