RoboCupJunior Soccer

RoboCupJunior Soccer is an educational initiative focused on elementary, middle and high school students, as well as initial college students. In this, teams of 2 against 2 autonomous mobile robots play matches in a closed field of minifutbol, ​​looking for a ball and trying to send it to the goal that corresponds to them, or defending against the opposing offensive.

The robots built exclusively by the participants must be completely autonomous; besides watching them in game, they will be examined in their construction, technical design and programming, looking for the tournament champion to have the best balance between all these elements. Participants should be able to give the best of their programming, robotics, electronics and mechatronics skills, but they should also contribute to teamwork and share their knowledge with other participants, regardless of their age or the result in the competition. Everyone is expected to compete, learn, have fun and grow.

Within this competition category there are three sub-leagues:

  • Lightweight Primary (without the right to participate in the RoboCupJunior International competition)
  • Lightweight
  • Open



RCJ Soccer teams must settle for at least 2 members and up to a maximum of 4.

The age is considered on July 1 of each year for the RoboCup World Cup, and therefore also for the Mexican Robotics Tournament.

Each contestant can only be enrolled in 1 unique team, sub-league and league in all RoboCupJunior.
