House of Payne Robotics Panther 1     V-5 Robot
    Thank you for your interest in the 2023 - 2024 VEX Robotics TEAM here at Payne Jr. High. 
    Who: 20 total 7th / 8th grade Payne students (space is limited, tryout selection process). 
    What: This is a competitive robotics team that uses Vex VRC (V5) parts to build complex machines for each year's game. The game "Over Under" will be revealed May 2nd on Youtube. 
    Where: Practices are held on campus. Tournaments are held throughout the valley (Newell Barney Middle school, ACP middle school are some on our list).
    When: Practices are currently scheduled for Monday and Thursday after school from 4-5pm.  (optional practice times can be added, this is the minimum). Tournaments are all-day Saturday events. We plan to compete in 3-4 tournaments ranging from October to April. (the team is a full-year commitment). 
    Why: Because working collaboratively and creatively with peers to build complex machines with the goal of winning competitions is amazing!  
    TRYOUTS -  To make the team, you need to be selected through our try-out process. This will be a 3-day process. Use the links below to familiarize yourself with the new game for the 23-24 season. Coming to tryouts with design ideas, knowledge of how to score points in the new game and/or ways you would "play" the game is key to getting selected. We also look strongly at collaboration skills to select cohesive teams.

    Looking through these two websites, researching the "Over Under" game when it comes out are the best steps to prepare for tryouts. 
    Once on the team, there will be a $60.00 fee for the season (we also rely heavily on tax credit donations) to register the robots, buy new custom parts for the new game, buy T-shirts, etc. 
    Anyone looking to sponsor the team, please contact the coach. We have plans to promote your company as our sponsor. Thank you for considering.
