STARTING A NEW TEAM
So you're keen on getting involved with competing? Awesome!
Getting involved with Kiwibots is easy - run through the checklist below to see if you can start your own team to compete in the VEX Competitions or our very own KiwiChallenges.
At least 2 students
Access to VEX Robotics equipment for the correct grade you wish to compete in
Enthusiasm and willingness to learn!
If you are able to fulfil all the requirements above, that's perfect! You have the essentials for starting a team.
We generally recommend that new teams interested in competing in the VEX Competition register between April - June so that we can get you involved with scrimmages and link you to your region's activities as soon as possible to be best prepared for Nationals (held in Nov/Dec for IQ and Feb for VRC).
When you're ready to take the next step - hit the button below and complete the short form to let us know a little more about your team! Someone from the Kiwibots team will get back to you as soon as possible.
We are always on the lookout for volunteers to help us as events, mentor a team, or support in other ways where they can.
If you would like to help out with our work, please fill out the form below and we will add you to our volunteer database. You will occasionally receive an email from us about any upcoming opportunities that you can get involved with.
