7842 Navigators 2017-18 Season

Donation protected


The 7842 Navigators robotics team had an incredible season last year, sending a group of participants to the VEX World's Competition in Louisville, Kentucky! This achievement was the end goal all throughout the season, and largely thanks to our sponsors, families and friends, we were able to send a group to participate in this world-class competition.

This season, we are excited to have both veteran team members returning and some new members joining the team as well. With this mix of skill and leadership, coupled with fresh excitement and enthusiasm, we're hoping to repeat last year's success by earning another spot at The World's competion in the spring of 2018.

As we ramp up for another season of VEX Robotics events, we're reaching out to family and friends with the hope that you might be willing to support the team as so many of you have for previous seasons. 

For those unfamiliar with our team, this group of youths work together throughout the season to design, build, program and compete with robotic vehicles. We are an inclusive club that brings together youth from many Vancouver Island communities. Our team members possess a wide range of skills in science, math, programming and engineering, to form a cooperative, comprehensive and competitive robotics team.

Since we attend robotics competitions on provincial, national and international levels, costs such as transportation, accommodations, meals, event registration, and equipment maintenance are all realities of the operations of the team.

In an effort to ensure the highest level of participation for all team members, and to reduce the financial load on individual families, support from our sponsors, families and friends have made all the difference.

Unique clubs such as the 7842 Navigators create a perfect environment to foster the creativity, innovation and emerging skills of our youth in a safe, inclusive and encouraging way. There’s no doubt that with your support, you can help them achieve great things! Thank you for your support, and please be sure to follow the team’s season on Facebook at
