Event Partner Overview

Event Partners are the core of VEX competition programs. Their passion and involvement grows and sustains the events and in many cases even the teams themselves. The role of an EP is to coordinate a team that organizes tournaments, leagues, scrimmages, and workshops. The key tasks are date and site selection, budget, volunteer recruiting and management, volunteer training, team communication, event execution, results, and follow-up.

Becoming an Event Partner

Becoming an EP is a great opportunity for individuals who share our passion for robotics and seek to establish a revenue stream to sustain and grow their own robotics program.
