Regional Competitions

MATE Regional ROV Competition Network


The MATE ROV Competition is planning to hold a 2021 competition season. The 2021 season and the events that take place will likely look differently than those held in the past; we will be communicating with our regional coordinators and adhering to the guidelines and policies set forth by schools, regions, states/provinces, federal governments, and health agencies as we make modifications and develop contingency plans. We appreciate your understanding as we navigate this fluid and ever-changing situation. WE ARE MATE STRONG!


The MATE Competition Network began in 2001 and currently consists of 41 regional events that take place across the U.S. and around the world.  Regional Compeittions serve as feeders into the World Championship's RANGER class, with the top teams from each regional contest earning a spot in our annual international competition.  Not all Regional Competitions offer every competition class. SCOUT and NAVIGATOR class winners do NOT advance to the World Championship.

Below is an alphabetical list of the regional competitions. Clicking on the region name will direct you to that region's webpage. If you are unsure which region you should participate in, please contact MATE ROV Competition management.
