Scouting Tips

When scouting,

  • Determine in advance what are the key performance parameters for you to know about
  • Keep data collection simple. It is more important to have a small sample of really good data than a lot of confusing information.
  • For 2016 “Stronghold” some key performance data might include
    • High goal shooting
    • Low goal shooting
    • Scaling the tower
    • Overcoming defenses
  • Assign a few students to watch matches to gather this data.  Be sure to have a good transition plan when other students take over.
  • Remember to check the pits to learn about drive systems, design, and special features.
  • Be ready to be an Alliance Captain and make your selections!
