Parent Participation

This policy is to help parents discern how to appropriately help their student(s) without endangering their student’s participation in the program.

What parents should not do:

  1. Construct anything on the event devices. If the student event participants cannot do something safely by themselves, they must find another way to accomplish the same objective or change their design.
  2. Test, assemble, or calibrate event devices at any time.
  3. Enter the event area during the tournaments, interfere with an event in any way, or offer advice or coaching from the sidelines, even if acting as a team coach or mentor for the event. Appropriate penalties will be assessed for interference.
  4. Touch or take pictures of another team’s device.
  5. Contact the Tournament Director directly with concerns or questions; a team’s designated head coach should only address these.
