Melbourne will be hosting its second FIRST® Robotics Competition in July 2023 after a successful 2022 Event. We hope you can join us in the 2023 Victorian winter school holidays. If you would like to help organise this event please contact us.

Information for New Teams

This is an Off-Season event (similar to the Duel Down Under). Teams aiming to qualify for the FRC World Championships in Houston must compete at the Southern Cross Regional held in March.

Teams are NOT required to pay a fee to attend this event, however they must be registered to play in the 2023 FRC season unless they are a pre-Rookie team (team that are trying out FRC with the view to registering for the following season). Teams can only play as a pre-Rookie once. Contact Us about starting a FRC team in Victoria.
