Unofficial: Do You Have To Bring Your Own Safety Goggles?


Event Partners (the people running the tournaments) are not required to provide safety glasses to all teams at all tournaments, but may choose to provide them nonetheless. You would have to check with the EPs beforehand to see if they do. When I was in HS VEX, the tournaments I went to, as well as the state tournament, did not provide safety glasses to all teams; we had to bring our own and we used our school’s safety glasses. I’d check with your school though, as it may keep safety glasses in stock, especially if they provide tools for you to cut or modify VEX parts with. You can borrow those if you can. As a general rule, plan on bringing your own glasses to the field.

Agreed. The only competition I’ve been to where they have given them out were FTC Worlds Houston.
