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 will need to compete at the Southern Cross Regional held in March.

The MRT is free to attend for all teams thanks to our genourous sponsors and volunteers who share our vision to grow the number of FRC teams and students in Australia.
