Rookie Rumble is the latest offseason event created by Team 1540. Like Girls’ Generation, this tournament uses the previous season’s game, with a competition field, and happens on the same weekend. The only difference is that students can only fill roles that are new to them. For example, last year’s driver cannot be the driver for Rookie Rumble.
The objective of creating Rookie Rumble is to promote FIRST, give them a taste of competition, and motivate them to continue to participate in FRC.
Most people combine this with Girls’ Generation the day before (since the robot and pit is already set up, why not) but that’s not a requirement.
