Starting a Match. Prior to the start of each Match, the Robot must be placed such that it is:
a. Contacting the field perimeter wall on the side that coincides with their Alliance’s Goal Zone and
Alliance Station.
b. Contacting a foam field tile.
c. Not contacting a Tower.
d. Not contacting any Cubes other than the Preload.
e. Contacting a Preload.

  1. The Preload must be contacting exactly one (1) Robot.
  2. The Preload must be fully within the field perimeter.
    f. Not contacting a Goal Zone or a Barrier.
    g. Not contacting another Robot.
