The final decision:

There are 2 game tweaks
(1) for new drive teams.
Drive teams (driver, operator, human player) consisting entirely of first-year students will receive a score advantage. A first year student is someone who has had limited drive team experience. He or she must not have participated in any competition drive teams prior to June 1, 2016. The drive team coach is exempt from this rule. First year drive teams will be allowed to place one of the spare boulders anywhere they wish on the playing field.   

(2) for the human player.
During the last 20 seconds, the human player gets one orange ball. If the human players scores directly into the high goal, it is worth the usual 5 points. If the human player scores directly into the low goal, it is worth 10 points. If the human player does not score, a robot may play the boulder for the usual number of points.
