Qualification Trials

Segways (RMPs and HTs) must be able to demonstrate that a collision with the ball will not cause them to tip over. This generally occurs when the Segway rides up on the ball with either its body or a wheel. Typically, this will be accomplished through the use of a kicker and/or a shaped ball shield. The Segways must demonstrate the ability of not being caught up under the ball when going forwards, backwards, or turning in place.
