2014: Aerial Assist
FIRST Aerial Assist is played by two competing Alliances of three Robots each on a flat 25 x 54 ft. field, straddled by a lighting truss suspended just over five feet above the floor. The objective is to score as many balls in the goals as possible during a two minute and thirty second match. The more Alliances score their ball in their goals, and the more they work together to do it, the more points their alliance receives.
FIRST’s 2014 Season, Aerial Assist, was our second year. We grew in members, sponsors, and mentors. Now our team does not consist of just one high school, but many all throughout Butte County. This year we were a little better put together and our work ethic improved immensely. We came back to the Sacramento Regional a little more prepared than the previous year and it showed in everything we did. During the off season we were again invited to come back to Elk Grove for their Capital City Classic tournament, and once again we brought home another trophy for how well we proved the girls on our team can be in their Chick’s In Charge match.
