About Rumble

Rumble 9 is an annual one-day off-season FIRST Robotics Competition event. The robotics tournament is designed to grow and strengthen the FIRST community by exposing new students, mentors, volunteers and sponsors to the excitement of a real FIRST competition.  This year’s event is proudly presented by FRC teams 122 NASA Knights, 1086 Blue Cheese, 1610 Blackwater Robotics, and 2363 Triple Helix Robotics.

The FIRST Robotics Competition challenges high school students to raise funds, hone teamwork skills, and design, build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks in competition with an international field of competitors.  Technical and non-technical mentors from industry partner with FIRST teams as a way of promoting STEM education, inspiring the next generation of scientists and technologists, and exposing students to various career options.  Through FIRST, students build not only STEM skills, but life skills such as leadership, communication, and self-confidence. 

Rule Changes

Rule changes will be determined no later than July 31.
