Answered: Coaches

We only have one driver for our robot right now, and would like to know if we can have a second “driver” who acts as a coach.

If the above is illegal, could we give the 2nd “driver” a spare joystick that the program doesn’t utilize?

I know these situations are essentially the same, so you may want to revise the rules to say something like
“Each team can have a maximum on 3 people in the Alliance Station at a time. Of these 3 people, no more than 1 can be an adult (who must be a coach), and no more than 2 can drive the robot.”

This is not illegal. A driver does not have to drive and is allowed to fulfill the role of the coach.
