News & General Information 

Event Qualification

All RoboCup Junior Victoria (RCJV) events are open entry, meaning any teams can enter any and all events, without prior experience or finals placement in a previous events. Whilst we do strongly encourage teams to attend Regional Event to gain experience, this is in no way required for entry into the State event, or event the Australia Open (Nationals).

Entry Volume Management
Challenges/Divisions listed for all events will run subject to a minimum of five entries in that challenge/division. In the event of less than five entries, or for other operational and/or management reasons, divisions may be merged and combined. Conversely, in the event there are too many entries for a particular event, or challenge/division at a event (as dictated by event, challenge/division and/or venue capacity and/or health and saftey requirements), organisations with the most entries may be asked to select their teams best prepared to attend the event. This is most likely to occur at the Victorian State or Melbourne Regional events. Mentors from any organisations affected will be contacted after close of entries.

Event Entry Fees
Entry fee amounts for each event are stated below. Entry fees include GST and are unchanged from 2019.

Rule Modifications
Please see the RCJV Soccer and RCJV Rescue pages (links to the left) for important information relevant to Regional and State events in Victoria. The information on these pages does not apply to the Australian Open (Nationals).

Miscellaneous
Important documents including the mandatory Participation Deed and Mentor Declaration (all events) and The University of Melbourne Audio/Video/Photograph Release (Victorian State Event only) can be found at the bottom of this page.
