Aim High is the game for the 2006 FIRST Robotics Competition season. Aim High is played by two alliances, red and blue, each consisting of three robots. During a 10 second autonomous mode, robots will be programmed to score into any of the three goals: one raised center goal marked by a green vision target and two corner goals at floor level. At the end of the autonomous period, the alliance with the most points will gain a 10 point bonus and will be placed on defense for round two. Rounds two, three, and four, which are each 40 seconds long, are human-controlled rounds. Between rounds two and three, the alliances will switch from offense to defense, or from defense to offense accordingly. At the start of round 4, any alliance can score into their corresponding goals. At the end of the match, an alliance can receive bonus points by placing its three robots on a platform below the center goal. The alliance with the most points wins. Scoring will be as follows: 3 points for any ball scored in the center goal, 1 point for any ball scored in the corner goals; 10 bonus points for scoring the highest in the autonomous round; and 25 points for placing all 3 robots on the platform at the end (10 points for 2 robots and 5 points for 1 robot).

The Aim High field has 6 goals and 2 platforms. Unlike previous years, an alliance's goals are on the far side of the field. The field is flat, measuring 54 feet long by 26 feet wide.The alliance station wall is 26 ft (8 m) long and stretches the width of the field. In the middle 18 ft (5 m) of the alliance station wall exists diamond plate aluminum from the floor to 3 ft (1 m) high, with clear acrylic filling the rest of the 3.5 ft (1.1 m). The outer edges of the wall consist of transparent polycarbonate. Above each alliance station, there is a circular goal (the center goal), with a green light above it. The green light is used so that the CMUcam can lock onto it. On the bottom left and right of each alliance station, there are two rectangular holes (the corner goals) through which balls can be scored. In front of each alliance station there is a raised platform.
