SRC Rookie Event -- January 2, 2021

Have you been craving the FRC event experience? Maybe you been looking to take part in an SRC event for some time, but never took the leap? Look no further than the SRC Rookie Event!

SRC events are full virtual recreations of everything you love about FRC events. Featuring qualification matches, alliance selections, elimination playoffs, and even virtual blue banners!

There are three different robots that you can choose to play as, including those that are modeled from 125 NUTRONs and 2481 Roboteers. Play Infinite Recharge with long-shot shooting, turret shooting, realistic foul rules, and ranking points. You can even get a chance to spin the control panel!

For the SRC Rookie Event, only “rookies” that are new to SRC are allowed to compete. A player is considered a rookie if they meet any of the following thresholds: have not played in SRC in the past 6 months, have under 100 official SRC matches played, or have only been in the bottom 2 divisions of any previous SRC Ladder season.

The SRC Rookie Event will take place Saturday, January 2 at 1:00pm Eastern / 10:00am Pacific. Streamed live on FirstUpdatesNow Twitch!
