This years game named Aerial Assist is played with two competeing Alliances with 3 robots each on the playing field.The objective is to score as many balls in goals as possible during the time duration given. The more the Alliances work together to score, the more points are given to the certain Alliance. Alliances receive large bonuses for "assists," which are earned for each robot that has possession of the ball in a zone as the ball moves down the field. Good luck to all teams participating in this years 2014 Aerial Assist games.
