WRRF presents 2021 CalGames, a FIRST Robotics Competition offseason event

CalGames 2021 will be returning to Lynbrook High School in San Jose on October 1-3. Thanks Lynbrook!

Dates: October 1-3, 2021

Location: Lynbrook High School, 1280 Johnson Avenue, San Jose

COVID protocols:



Questions: CalGames Event Co-Managers at CalGames(at)WRRF(dot)org

Note that, unlike prior years:

we will not be holding discussions on potential rule changes, as most teams haven’t even played the game yet with official rules; and
we will be performing full inspections on all competing robots, as most have not been on a field in two years.

In short, think of this more of a pre-season event serving as a warm-up for the return to official competitions next year, rather than a typical post-season one.
We will also continue to be following any COVID guidelines that the county, host school, and/or WRRF board may issue, whatever they may be, to make sure everyone can have a fun time and be safe.

Registration is open via this form here:

  • Early Registration closed on August 1. Cost was $250 per team, plus a commitment to a volunteer slot (6+ students, 1+ adults). Not fulfilling this commitment will disqualify the team from competing in CalGames 2022.
  • Open Registration began on August 1 and costs $350 per team with no commitment to a volunteer slot.

Also, please reach out to if you are interested in volunteering!

* Attendees must wear a face covering, as required by the county.

* Attendees must agree to the WRRF consent & release agreement, which includes COVID clauses.
