Welcome Back ND RFC!

Posted on September, 30th, 2022

The Notre Dame Robotic Football Club is back and having weekly meetings every Tuesday at 8pm in Basement B in Fitzpatrick Hall. For those of you who are unfamiliar, ND RFC makes robots that compete in 8 vs 8 football. The rules are slightly modified, but we do all of the main aspects of football from tackling to special teams to passing. There are four different groups in the club: Manufacturing, Pit Crew, Electrical and Code, so there is room for people of all different engineering skill sets. Not an engineer? That's okay, you can learn the ropes through the club or just show up to drive practice and help drive the robots using PS4 controls. Looking forward to another great year!
