Aerial Assist is 2014’s FIRST game for FRC. For this season, the competition was based heavily on the concept of teamwork. The game object was a 24 inch ball (2 colors corresponding to each alliance) that could be picked up by a robot and thrown into the high goal for 10 points or 1 point for the low goal. If an alliance member hands off the ball to one of the other 2 alliance partners, then they will receive 10 bonus points (30 bonus points in total if all 3 alliance partners have possessed the ball). Another way for scoring 10 points was to throw the ball over a truss for an extra 10 points and if the ball is caught by an alliance member on the other side, then an additional 10 points is scored.
