Team 33 Scouting Sheet 2012
This is a filled out scouting sheet for 2012 (Troy event). This year I decided to put a filled out sheet up on CD to show how they look going into Pick-list formation Friday afternoon/night.

We like the one consistent sheet as we can then use them like playing cards and do some quick sorts. Previously it was to ensure that all the relevant and necessary data for a team is easy and accessible. This year, several teams showed me their “scouting reports” that they send to the Coach, and I am really impressed and will likely make some changes for next year. 2337 has one of my personal favorites.

This particular sheet was from the first 10 rounds at Troy. The blanks at the top of the page are totals for some of the key metrics after the first 8 rounds (Friday). This particular sheet shows the importance of comments as several of the matches, the robot died shortly into the match. Dying during a match is very important towards scouting. If you are looking for a strong consistent strategy, a robot that dies could send you home early. If you are an alliance captain that needs a wild-card to beat a great alliance, a high scoring, but sometimes dies robot could be just the ticket for pulling an upset.
We have a team of 7+ scouts in the stands taking the data. 1 Lead scout organizes the sheets and ensure quality (reviewing sheets after each match). 6 scouts are dedicated to watch each robot in the match. We have 2 Lead scouts on our team that rotate the role of Lead, and about 20 students rotate through the role of taking match data though there is a core group that clearly scout more matches than others.
