  2. You will first need to create a "Login".
    • Click on “Register.” Enter all required information and click the “Register” button.
    • Enter your email and password and click "Login".
  3. Check to ensure that the correct year is listed in the “Season” dropdown menu on the right-hand side. Click the "Register a Team" button.

    • A VIQC or VRC team number consists of a base number that represents a school/organization followed by a letter that represents a team within that school/organization. A VEX U team is the opposite: the base identifier for a school/organization is a series of 2-5 letters followed by a single-digit number that represents a team within that school/organization.
    • As such, all teams in a single program (VIQC, VRC or VEX U) from a school or organization should have the same base number/identifier.
