Scrimmage is where you will get a chance to test out your robot in a match with other teams. Although it has no explicit bearing on team seeding, it is highly beneficial for teams to practice to gain experience driving, see what others have come up with, and to troubleshoot problems with staff.

Practice matches will be scheduled for your team and you will have the option to participate in these matches to:

  1. Practice your strategy
  2. Familiarize yourself with the field
  3. Scope out the competition (i.e. Identifying possible alliance partners)

Be sure to have a working robot by Scrimmage. You will have time between matches to tweak your design and handle any issues that arise from the matches, but your experience will be far more worthwhile if you show up with a functional robot that is ready to compete.
