  • KYTSA VEX Robotics
    • We will again be participating in the VEX Robotics Competition at this year's State Conference. If you have a team or teams, please make sure that you have registered your team(s) on www.robotevents.com as this is a requirement to compete in any VEX competition whether it be TSA related or a VRC competition. Also this still does not permit you to compete in the TSA event. Read the guidelines for the event from the website and then you will also need to register your team with the Kentucky TSA online registration www.registermychapter.com. For your team to be eligible, they must be registered with both VEX and KYTSA. If you have questions regarding the competition itself, please contact Frank Cercone fcercone@bluegrasset.com or Jason Neagle Jason.Neagle@Hardin.Kyschools.us.
