SUHSD VEX Robotics League

Welcome to SWEETWATER VEX Robotics Family!

Over 6,000 students have been part of Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD) robotics since 2006.

What makes our District VEX Program different is its magnitude, outreach, continued growth, and sustainability. In the 2008-2009 school year, Hilltop High School started the first VEX robotics team in the district. In the 2010-2011 school year, Otay Ranch High School hosted its first VEX robotics tournament and in 2012-13 and based on the growth of VEX robotics teams across our district, Sweetwater VEX Robotics League was born. High school and middle school students have joined and participated in our district league for 6 years. Last school year (2017-18), we separated high school teams from middle school teams. It was the inaugural year for the Sweetwater Middle Schools VEX Robotics League with the participation of every SUHSD middle school.


2021-2022 Robotics- World Champions 

On May, 9, around 5:15pm PST, in Dallas, Texas, Rancho Del Rey Team 6446C, “The Royal Robots”, under coach Mr. Kirk Braito, after two days of competing along with over eight hundred teams from all over the world, first won their division, and then went on to beat the champions of nine other divisions to win the VEX Robotics VRC 2022 Middle School World’s Championship.  That is the highest award that can be given to middle school students in the world, and our students did it.  “This is the robotics equivalent to winning the Little League World Series. Our kids are better than 20,000 VEX teams worldwide.” Ms. Jones -Teacher
